HOMEWOOD, Ill. â€“ YMR Music Productions, owner of the Branson Gospel Music Convention, is announcing a series of concerts, entitled Give the Gospel, which will be held across the country to benefit local charities. Concerts are being planned in several selected cities to promote community involvement and support organizations that give and serve those areas.
Kelly Burton, CEO of YMR Music Productions explains, “The current American economy presents a problem for most of us, but sadly, the charities that help those most in need are also being hit the hardest. YMR Music Productions would like to give supporters and fans of gospel music an opportunity to give back to their communities while enjoying the music they love and receiving ministry as well.”
The first concert in the series will take place on Friday night, November 6, 2009 in Lebanon, Missouri. YMR Music Productions will present a night of gospel music featuring The Ascension Quartet, Rod Burton, and the legendary Ron Blackwood and the Blackwood Quartet. This concert will partner with The Pregnancy Support Center of Laclede County, serving Lebanon and the surrounding areas.
Ron Blackwood says, “I am personally very excited about using gospel music to benefit more than its audience. All of us involved feel strongly that we must use our calling to give to as many people as we can a message of hope and a tangible hand whenever we can.”
The concert will take place at the Cowan Civic Center in Lebanon and will start at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $10.00 and available now by contacting the YMR Music Productions office at (708) 960-0111.
Additional concerts in the Give the Gospel concert series will be announced over the coming weeks and will pair some of the best loved names in gospel music with regional artists in selected cities. The concerts will feature a low ticket price with profits going to the selected charities.
