Oakland F.A.M.E. Choir to Perform in Ghana

 First African Episcopal Church at 3701 Telegraph Ave. in Oakland recently hosted a
Ghana Benefit Concert to help send F.A.M.E.’s Mass Choir to Ghana.
The Jan. 20 concert presented a diverse mix of talents ranging from hip-hop to praise dance and a comedy routine by David Scott.  Recording Artist Rev. Jeffery Williams, Minister Of Music, started the evening with a performance by the Mass Choir.  The event was hosted by Brother Avery Garrett.
F.A.M.E. is seeking to participate in the African Choral Festival, which has a rich history of arts music, fellowship and tradition dating back hundreds of years.
“Not only do we have the opportunity to provide music and services to the people of Ghana, our goal is to positively affect the Ghanaians by providing medical and stationary supplies to local hospitals and orphanages,’’ said President of the choir Deshawn White.
“Our choir’s mission is to spread the Gospel of Christ through song,’’ he said.   
 The choir is set to leave for Africa on March 7 but still must raise an additional $4,000 to cover expenses. Contributions can be made to F.A.M.E. at (510) 655-1527 or www.fameoakland.org.
