Grammy Award winner Beverly Crawford and the dynamic Starlights will be performing Saturday, November 5, 2011 at the Riverside Fox Performing Arts Theatre to honor Maya Angelou and Lindsay Hughes, the Founder and Chairman of the McDonald’s Gospel Fest during the 1st Samaritan’s Feet Shoes of Hope Gospel Fest. Joined by Pastor Michael Fisher and the Voices of Destiny Choir, winner’s of Verizon’s “How Sweet the Sound” Gospel Contest in 2010, Crawford and the Starlights will perform during an evening filled with gospel music from four competing area choirs.
Choirs competing on Saturday evening were selected from 2 rounds of auditions that hosted choirs and vocalists from all over the Tri-County area. The four finalists selected include: Friendship Christian Fellowship Mass Choir, Kay-C (Kansas Avenue Youth Choir), LA Youth Inner City Choir and Ecclesia Christian Fellowship “Unity Choir”. Pre-event auditions also yielded the talents of new vocalists Arie Howard, Tommy French and gospel rapper Don Floss & the Street Gospel Group, who will also add to the musical line-up for the evening Comedian Cizzle C and Dr. Suzie Jones will host the evening’s event, which will serve to foster the primary mission of Samaritan’s feet by encouraging attendees to bring a new pair of shoes for children and adults in need.
Samaritan’s Feet, a global humanitarian aid organization, washes the feet of impoverished women, children and men globally and provides them with a new pair of shoes to aid in saving the lives of over 1,000,000 people that die each year as a result of foot-borne illnesses that may have been prevented by the simple protection of a pair of shoes. Samaritan’s Feet and its team of global ambassadors have touched the lives of men, women, and children across the United States and around the world in an effort to help nearly 300 million people who go without shoes each day. Through this simple act of humility and servant-leadership, team members and volunteers are expressing love, compassion, and the gospel message that brings hope. The Shoe’s of Hope Gospel Fest is an extension of that message and has been created to increase awareness, while raising funds and collecting shoes for those in need.
Samaritan’s Feet “Shoes of Hope” Gospel Fest will take place on Saturday, November 5, 2011 at the Fox Performing Arts Theatre on Mission Ave, in Riverside, CA at 7:00 pm. Tickets range from $20 - $65 and can be acquired through Ticketmaster or the Fox Theatre Box Office. (Prices are subject to fees through Ticketmaster).
