I love the way Fort Wayne brings together talented musicians to offer extraordinary events for the public. We not only experience that in our holiday events, such as the Living Christmas Tree, but now in a post-holiday celebration featuring The Voices of Unity (VOU) Youth Choir. This special choir has gained recognition as one of the finest children’s choirs in the world! After performing in the Popular Choral Music Category at the sixth World Choir Games in Shaoxing China in 2010, the VOU choir returned to the US with a Gold medal! Even better, in the category of Gospel and Spiritual music which the VOU choir also participated it earned the distinction of Grand Champion! Now in just a few days we have a chance to hear this fantastic group perform its special type of music for the Fort Wayne public, along with several other gifted local musicians. On January 8, 2012, the VOU choir will present gospel songs in the manner that has made them famous. Marshall White, who led the group to its international fame, will again direct. Other local worship leaders scheduled to participate in the event include Aaron Jackson (Life Bridge Church), Albert Brownlee (Genesis Outreach), Holly Parks (Broadway Christian Church), Sharece Petus (Greater Progressive Baptist Church), and Josh Hawkins (First Assembly of God). The event will take place at 6:00 PM at the Rhinehart Music Center on the IPFW campus. Call 260.515.2788 for more information or go to the VOU website. Cost: Adult - $15.00 Senior & Student - $10.00 Child 12 & under - $5.00 Each child carrying a canned good will be admitted free. Please plan to attend this event that could change the life of a child by your participation, as well as your own.
