United as one country, united as one spirit, the Hopeville -United As ONE tour will fill your soul as three Grammy winning gospel artists come together for the first time.

Young and old alike will come together as ONE to witness a concert like no other seen in this country when the Hopeville tour arrives at the Orange Show Pavillion tonight at 8 p.m.

Kirk Franklin returns with the new, mind-boggling solo release, The Rebirth of Kirk Franklin. The album is more than aptly named.

Displaying Kirk's absolutely breath-taking grasp of the full breadth and depth of nearly all genres of contemporary and traditional music-secular as well as sacred-it leaps so far above and beyond even his greatest previous work that it could be thought of indeed as a daring but ever-engrossing rebirth of one of modern music's already most fertile minds.

With dramatic spoken narratives laid atop cinematic soundscapes, interspersed between 11 Kirk originals (with help from the late Rich Mullins on "He Reigns") of profound lyrical substance, Kirk continues to speak to millions of people of all walks and persuasions.

Donnie McClurkin's message is clear, as real today as the day he committed his life to Christ at nine years old. "I want to introduce Jesus Christ to the world, not as a religious leader, but as an intimate friend who wants to radically change our lives," Donnie explains.

"I want the world to know that we can sit down and embrace Him, He can embrace us, and He can handle any problem we are going through. He loves each of us individually, one by one". His crossover success to the R & B Charts with "We Fall Down" has made him a household name.

By now, almost everybody in music circles knows that gospel superstar Yolanda Adams floored audiences this year with her platinum Grammy-winning Elektra debut Mountain High.Valley Low. Mountain High.

Valley Low, which features the smash hit "Open My Heart," spent much, of the year at #1 on Billboards Gospel and Contemporary Christian Charts, and firmly secured her position as one of Gospel's best. In January 2001, Yolanda took home an astonishing five Stellar Awards, out of the eight for which she was nominated.

As anyone who has seen and heard Yolanda perform can tell you, witnessing her unfettered passion firsthand is indeed and experience, and these recordings are without question Yolanda at her best.

The tour appears in San Bernardino tonight for one show only.
