Commissioner Dennis C. Moss invites you to the Fourth Annual Black History Month Gospel Fest


(MIAMI-DADE) – This Sunday, February 8th, 2015 Miami-Dade County Commissioner Dennis C. Moss invites you to The South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center for the Fourth Annual Black History Month Gospel Fest. This event will feature Grammy Award winning recording artist and BET “Sunday Best” winner Le’Andria Johnson. She will be joined by local artists including Raymond Young and the Dedications Dance Ministry, Amah’s Touch, the Gospel Caravans, Miami’s Blessed, Arsimmer McCoy, Sheneil Lewin, and the Ministers of Music.

The Gospel Fest is part of the Black Affairs Advisory Board’s month long Black History celebration. “The Black Affairs Advisory Board and the Miami-Dade County Cultural Affairs Department continue to make this a memorable event every year,” said Commissioner Moss. “This is another example of their commitment to develop cultural excellence, diversity and participation throughout Miami-Dade County.”

The event will also feature a program honoring “Living Legends” — citizens who have been active in South Miami’s religious community for 50 years or more. “We are excited to present this year’s Gospel Fest, which has continued to grow both in stature and importance to the South Dade community and beyond,” said event chair Pastor Melissa Rolle-Scott.

The Fourth Annual Gospel Fest begins at 5 p.m. at the SMDCAC, 10950 SW 211th Street in Cutler Bay.  Tickets are $15 per person for adults and $3 for children 1 to 17.
