White House Gospel Music Celebration To Air On PBS and TV One
Bishop Rance Allen, Pastor Shirley Caesar, Tamela Mann and others join Aretha Franklin and the Morgan State University Choir for “The Gospel Tradition: In Performance at the White House”. The hour long program celebrates the rich history of Gospel music and its impact on other music genres and will air on PBS and TV One on June 26th.
“The gospel tradition, which has its roots in the African-American community, has lifted up so many, promising hope whether through the everyday travails of life or some of our nation’s most turbulent times,” noted Brad Siegel, president of TV One. “We’re proud to be partners with WETA and public broadcasting in celebrating this uniquely American institution at the White House and with the American public.”
