Event description

Description

Join the Ways and Means and Arts and Letters Committees of the North Harris County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. for an outing celebrating the arts! Proceeds from this event benefit scholarships for high school students attending schools in Cypress, Spring, Jersey Village, Humble and Tomball.

Mahalia is a joyous celebration of the life and music of the world's greatest gospel singer: a humble, deeply religious woman whose expressive, full throated voice carried her from a three room shanty in New Orleans to international fame. The joy and inspiration of her heartfelt songs provide a counterpoint to the urgent messages delivered by her friend, Martin Luther King. Standing at his side, Mahalia Jackson became the musical voice of the civil rights movement. This harmonious tribute includes music by various gospel composers as well as hymns and spirituals made famous by Mahalia Jackson.
