Tennessee Mass Choir/students to perform at LOC Sunday

The Tennessee Mass Choir, under the direction of Grammy award winning music producer Jason Clark, will headline this year’s annual LOC Sunday, set for April 23 at Brown Missionary Baptist Church, 7600 Swinnea Road in Southaven, Miss.

The event also will feature performances by the LOC Concert and Gospel choirs. Former Hallelujah 95.7 FM radio personality Michael Adrian Davis will host the event.

“LOC Sunday is designed to feature the spectacular talent of outstanding students from all divisions at LeMoyne-Owen College,” said Rosemary Hicks, LOC Sunday coordinator. “We really wanted to focus on our students and their talents, so this year, we are only featuring one group of special guests, the Tennessee Mass Choir.”

Davis will conduct a comedy segment during the event and will introduce the Tennessee Mass Choir following the segment.

The occasion is also a fundraiser for the college, with some local churches contributing as much as $25,000 in past years.

In previous years, gospel recording artists Dottie Peoples, Lee Williams and the Spiritual QC’s and Tramaine Hawkins were featured during LOC Sunday.

All congregations and pastors that will donate and/or be in attendance remain unknown as of this posting.

Doors will open at 3 p.m. to feature an Art Showcase and Science Exhibition produced by LOC students and performances begin at 4 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call Rosemary Hicks at (901) 435-1535 or rosemary_hicks@loc.edu.
