April 2, 2010

Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum, crossover Gospel king Kirk Franklin is coming to FedExForum. The biggest selling Gospel artist in Soundscan history with over 12 million albums sold and over 20 #1 singles, 5 Grammy Awards, an American Music Award, 34 Stellar Awards, 12 Dove Awards, 4 NAACP Awards, 2 BET Music Awards and a Soul Train Music Award on his mantle – he is a hero and example to anyone who thinks their life is beyond redemption. His latest masterwork, The Fight of My Life, will be the stirring soundtrack for winning the fights of our lives.

Gospel According to Soul (the story of the resurrection told with today’s music)

, A Dwayne Hunt Production, is The story of the resurrection told with today’s music
“There’s A Reason They Call It Soul Music”

In a city known for it’s music this musical is becoming an Easter tradition.  I had so much fun last year, you would have to see,(hear) it to believe it.  HIS story and our songs, is a good combination.

Imagine for a moment you are of the biblical days, witnessing the many blessings and miracles of God. The birth of Jesus Christ, and the way His teachings transformed many by reaching out to disciples asking, “The Question Is,” “What’s Going On,” while reminding them “I’ll Be There” during their times of need. Don’t forget the treason and manipulation of Satan and those who betrayed Jesus were caught up, “For the Love of Money,” sinning, claiming they were “Tired of Being Alone,” and worshipping other gods. As Jesus took the long walk bearing the cross, paying the ultimate price for our sins, He told His disciples, “I Stand Accused,” but don’t worry, “I Would Die For You,” just remember to obey the word of God and “I’ll Take You There,” to the kingdom of heaven.

(March 31, 2010)–In conjunction with the National Civil Rights Museum’s April 4th MLK Commemoration Events, CareCuts barbering program is providing FREE haircuts to disadvantaged young men, ages 9 – 16, Saturday, April 3, 2010. This show of goodwill will help participating youth look their best on Easter Sunday. The National Civil Rights Museum is located at 450 Mulberry St. in downtown Memphis, and the haircuts will be offered between 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Easter Sunday is traditionally observed by many by wearing their “Sunday best” and attending special church services. Resurrection/Easter weekend is also the weekend with the highest volume of hair cuts each year, and CareCuts was created to provide an opportunity to give back to the Memphis community through free barbering services for a valuable and well-deserving demographic. Barber to the stars, Degarrett, also called “The Franchize Barber,” and local businessman Michael Steven Moore, are leading this community event. This small, simple gesture has the ability to provide a big boost in self-esteem to young men who value their appearance but may not always have the financial means to receive regular haircuts.

April 3rd is also the day before the anniversary of the slaying of civil rights icon, Dr. Martin Luther King, who was killed April 4th 1968 on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel, which serves as the main focal point for the National Civil Rights Museum. It is on those hallowed grounds where Dr. King gave his life and the day before one of the holiest days of the year that CareCuts is reaching out to make a difference.

Young men ages 9-16 can visit the museum for only $2.00 between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. At the completion of their tour, they can receive a free haircut. For more information call 901. 690.3262.
