I'm sure many of you have heard the buzz of my upcoming event: Praises Go Up & Blessings Come Down Gospel Fest. One of the main purpose of creating this event was for people to celebrate many spiritual religions , help others in need such as Proud Fight, helping kids with the cure & treatment of cancer and Shaw University students from the tornado storm. My vision was also to help spread the word of local talent. What puzzled me the most is when i first advertised the gospel fest. The main question people asked was: who is the main act? They were looking for Kirk Franklin & Mary Mary. I was shocked! I know celebrities play a big role at events and parties and i'm not knocking celebrities but local talents are awesome and they have a silent word when it comes to the public. Local talent also don't receive the support like they should. My answer to that question was: all the performers and models in the gospel fest are the main act! Remember most celebrities performed at local bars, lounges and clubs for years before they got discovered!
