Dino, Larnelle Harris, Sandi Patty, and Robert Stearns to Honor Israel at Carnegie Hall

Written by SGN Scoops on January 31, 2013 – 3:43 pm -

NEW YORK, Jan. 31, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — Well-respected, award-winning Christian recording artists are honoring Israel this spring in a gala benefit concert being hosted at Carnegie Hall by pianist Dino Kartsonakis and his wife Cheryl.

The special “Honoring Israel at Carnegie Hall” concert will take place at 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 11, 2013, at the world famous venue. The event will feature performances, from the Philadelphia Boys Choir, Denver and the Mile High Orchestra, and The Christian Cultural Center Chorale as well as the musical talents of Robert Stearns, operatic tenor Daniel Rodriguez, and Grammy and Dove Award-winning singers Sandi Patty and Larnelle Harris.

“Anti-semitism is on the rise, and Israel is now surrounded by nations committed to her destruction,” world-famous piano artist Dino said. “Cheryl and I have always prioritized praying and working for the peace of Jerusalem. My friends, it is vital that we stand together.”

Robert Stearns, founder of Eagles’ Wings, and a global leader in Jewish-Christian relations, said, “The evening of music will celebrate our nation’s longstanding and unbreakable bond with Israel at one of Manhattan’s most prestigious venues.”

“There has never been a time in our nation’s history that our public and private bond with Israel has been more critical,” Stearns said. “With this historic concert, we hope to make it clear that New York stands with Israel.”

Proceeds from the event will go to feed hungry Jews, Arabs and Druze in Israel through humanitarian non-profit, “Hope for Zion” as well as to help build a prayer and study center in Migdal Arbel, Israel, whose mission is to cultivate a love and understanding for the people and nation of Israel.

BRANSON, Mo. – (June 23, 2011) – The Branson Gospel Music Revival (formerly Convention) is returning to Branson, Missouri for the third time next week. The four-day annual event heads to a new venue this year, the Tri-Lakes Center, 2527 State Highway 248 in Branson.

Taking place Tuesday, June 28 – Friday, July 1, the gospel celebration consists of daily matinee and evening concerts featuring approximately 75 Gospel musicians from across the United States.

Dino, HisSong, Beyond the Ashes, Kenny Bishop, Ann Downing, Mike Allen, The Williamsons, Praise Incorporated, 2nd Generation, Voices of Glory, Jay Stone Singers, McMillan and Life, Rod Burton, Lynda Lynn, Sunday Edition, Mystery Men, and more will be part of the Revival, which organizers say puts the spotlight on the gospel message.

Also returning will be the popular SGN Scoops Diamond Awards, as well as the Tribute to Albert Brumley and  “Piano Praise” segments. Additionally, a  “New Faces” afternoon concert geared toward teens and those “young at heart” has been added. A Branson GMR Prayer Team, who will pray with audience members and artists alike during the week, is a new addition this year as well.

“We continue to learn and grow and are striving to make this an even more enjoyable event, one that continues to attract new people to this great city every summer,” co-owner and host Rod Burton stated. “Meanwhile, our focus continues to be on fostering a time of refreshing and encouragement for our artists as well as the audience.”

Having won the “Pacesetter of the Year” award from AbsolutelyGospel.com for the second consecutive year, Burton and his wife and partner, Kelly Burton, look forward to building on the success of what they still consider a very new event.

“It has been a true honor to receive some Gospel industry accolades,” Kelly mentions. “What we hope that sort of recognition translates to is more people coming to hear the truly fantastic artists who gather here with us in Branson every summer, so they can receive the message of faith being offered through gospel music.”

On that note, the couple has announced that Wednesday, June 29, will be “Disaster Relief Night” at the Revival, with a portion of all ticket and program book proceeds going to aid victims of Branson and Hollister area flooding as well as the recent catastrophic tornado in Joplin, Missouri.
