Happy Monday MMT Family! MMT is giving away a pair of tickets to the Philadelphia Celebration of Gospel at the Mann Center of the Performing Arts which will honor the work of Philadelphia native and legend the Reverend Louise Williams Bishop.
A tribute to acknowledge the important role Bishop has played in both the local community and music, the concert will feature a musical performance by highly sought after revivalist, singer and musician Reverend Dr. Alyn E. Waller, with additional performances by the Brockington Ensemble, Willis Hickerson Jr., ENON Tabernacle Mass Choir and the Sharon Baptist Church Praise Team. The celebration is being held on Sunday, September 14 at 4 p.m.

Aretha Franklin! You can also get additional concert info and purchase tickets for the event at manncenter.org.
