Nationally-acclaimed gospel performer Kevin Monroe will headline, with appearances by Pastor Danny Bland (and choir) and the multi-Grammy-nominated vocal sensation Darrell Walls.

Brunch is supplied by Sandra’s Next Generation, a soul food restaurant inspired by chef Sandra Pittman’s mother’s home cooking, and can be picked up and eaten on the green (or you can livestream the event at home). Drop in on this event to get every kind of sustenance all in one place.
