Skybreak Church will host the “Brazos Valley Gospel Explosion” December 12 beginning at 5 p.m. Featured gospel performers will include Lemmie Battles, the voice of the Chicago Mass Choir; Vickie Winans, songstress, comedian and actress from Detroit; and Tallie Rogers of Blytheville, Arizona, sister of Tim Rogers and The Fellas. Kaleb Kane Alvarado will also perform. Others featured at the event will include Pastor Van D. Roberson and group The Men of Purpose.
Organizer Jacqueline Hodge says the purpose and mission of the concert is to give the community of believers an opportunity to come together and worship by bringing nationally acclaimed artists together with local Christian community talent.
