A tribute gospel concert is planned to honor the Rev. Gilbert ‘Gil’ Fears, host of the Edna Tatum’s Gospel Classics radio broadcast on KPFK – 90.7 FM. The concert will be held on Friday, June 9, at 7 p.m., at The Living Room of Faithful Central Bible Church, 333 West Florence Avenue in Inglewood. According to tribute committee members Quaford Coleman and Natalie and Gamal Smalley, the community is invited to attend the free concert.
“The tribute concert will feature a host of gospel music singers and choirs including the Los Angeles Chapter – GMWA, Reverend Calvin B. Rhone, Chapter Representative; Dr. Quincy Fielding, Jr. & The Grace Choir; Dr. Henry Jackson, Elaine Gibbs, Maran Elizabeth Pittman, Michael Speaks, Grant Lewis and many more,” said Coleman.
“The evening’s celebration will highlight Reverend Gil’s commitment and loyalty to ministry that spans more than 25 years. Reverend Gil’s record speaks for itself. He is in a class all of his own. We would find it most difficult to imagine where our community would be without him on the radio on Sundays,” he noted.
“He has given outstanding service to all of Southern California through the broadcast; that benefits thousands with classic Gospel Music, inspiration from God’s Word and intercessory prayer. With his unique ministry that reaches across religious and racial barriers; the motto of the show, ‘where your Sunday mornings begin,’ has truly made an impact in our community,” added Coleman.
The title sponsor of the free concert is the House of Winston Funeral Services, Inc., led by the Rev. Shane B. Scott, president. To learn more, call (323) 252-1597.
