1. Visit Afro Bella for a wonderful tribute to the great Mahalia Jackson. Mahalia overcame great odds to achieve her childhood dream of becoming a gospel singer. Her perserverance and faith in God allowed her to live her dreams and to pave the way for so many others. Loved the last youtube video! Her wig had a mind of its own.
2. Robert Bradley, one of the most important figures in gospel music, has died at the age of 87.
3. Famed Gospel music singer, Dottie Peoples, is bringing her spirit and fashion sense to Ocala for a special Mother’s Day concert.
5. David and Tamela Mann, the couple known and loved by millions as Cora and Mr. Brown in Tyler Perry’s “Meet the Browns”, “Madea’s Class Reunion” and “Madea’s Family Reunion”, have come out with new CD’s. I absolutely love David Mann as Mr. Brown in Tyler’s plays!
