Gospel conference scheduled for August


Gospel singer Dorinda Clark-Cole announced at the Glass City Gospel Celebration Sunday night at River of Life Church that her 15th annual national Singers & Musicians Arts Conference will be held in Toledo Aug. 14-17. “We’re going to have preaching, we’re going to have singing. The revival is coming,” she said.

In 2012, the conference was in Southfield, Mich., and included instruction from the Berklee College of Music. There were daytime workshops on praise and worship, image, and songwriting, with sessions for musicians and liturgical dancers. Showcase performers appeared before a panel of judges.
