Hollypark United Methodist Church hosted the Dozier Singers Family & Friends (DSF) Black History concert on Feb. 16. During the program, DSF held a moment of silence to remember Kobe Bryant, and his daughter, Gianna, who perished along with seven others in a helicopter crash on Jan 26. Also, as soft music played in the background, audience members called out the names of their loved ones, who were recently deceased.
In addition, Hollypark member, Kenny Ross, and his 10-year old daughter, Kaycie, dribbled a basketball to the stage, passed it back and forth a few times and then disappeared as the curtain closed. As the curtain closed, DSF sang the Boyz to Men favorite, “It’s So Hard to Say Good-bye to Yesterday.”
