Live Onstage: The Amazing Gospel Souls
The Amazing Gospel Souls were born from a gospel singing group formed at the DC Department of Corrections prison system at Lorton in 1980. All current members are ex-offenders, all Washingtonians and all now committed to a gospel ministry.
Members feel that their time at Lorton was a training period to develop skills and education which they use now to reach out to young people in their communities, helping them to find ways to “navigate their way through this noisy 21st century.” Some of the group have master’s degrees in social and applied sciences, others are ministers and preachers, while still others are counselors and community organizers. Most importantly, all feel that they are productive members of society continuing their spiritual journey through gospel music and community outreach.
Please join us for an afternoon of uplifting music as these “Amazing Gospel Souls” give testament to their faith through music and song.
