The 2014 Gospel Is Alive concert will take place Monday, April 28, from 9:30a to noon at the Franklin Avenue Baptist Church. This year's headline performer is Bishop Rance Allen, who will perform along with the Mahalia Jackson Gospel Youth Choir.
The Gospel Is Alive concert is an outreach program for senior citizens in the New Orleans area. The concert is also open to the public, free of charge, depending on seating availability. To celebrate the rich tradition of gospel music in New Orleans — the birthplace of Mahalia Jackson — Jazz Fest each year presents an outstanding program of gospel performers for audiences of senior citizens.
