‘Sweet Soul of the 70s’ show
Community activist/author Donna Gray-Banks dovetails with a chance to see a show at the Mary McLeod Bethune Performing Arts Center.
Gray-Banks sends an email from Cuba Gooding, Sr., Main Ingredient’s lead singer, best known for “Everybody Plays the Fool.” Gooding will present “Sweet Soul of the 70s,” starring The Emotions, Harold Melvin’s Blue Notes, Peaches & Herb and, of course, The Main Ingredient!
Gooding requests you to visit their website at www.cuba-gooding.com for more detailed information. In addition, he requests you spread the word!
The concert will be the first in a series to be presented in the area. They are looking for the first performance to be a huge success.
They have enlisted you into their army of “foot soldiers for good music!” The artists are the actual vocalists who sang the song so come and enjoy fantastic music. It’s going to be a lot of fun!
More information is available now on the website. The performance will take place July 19. The doors will open 6:30 p.m. at the Mary McLeod Bethune Performing Arts Center, 608 West International Speedway Blvd., Daytona Beach.
As always, remember our prayers for the sick, afflicted and bereaved.
Birthday wishes to: Betty C. White, Victor Jordan, May 22; Leonard Rowe, Sandra I. Nurse, Dr. Lawrence Gary, May 26; Audrey Thorpe, May 27.
