A modest crowd filled Sabathani’s Auditorium Sunday afternoon on June 12 to hear some of the Twin Cities finest performers all while supporting Sabathani in a fund raising effort to help North Minneapolis families in recovery following the May 22 tornado that ripped homes and lives apart in a single afternoon.
Shiloh Temple International Ministries Choir opened the show with some powerful gospels numbers that set the tone for the entire evening. Most, Ray Covington and Ava Brown and an a cappella selection by Thomasina Petrus. Spoken word artist KimberLove and words of inspiration from Bishop Richard Howell, Shiloh Temple International Ministries, reminded everyone to keep their heads toward heaven and move on by faith. Dance groups Mexica Yolotl and Folklorico dazzled the audience adorned in bright colors, shells, tall feathers and bells. The show wrapped up with Terry Ann Nash, director of Diversity Alive! Kevin Nash, Terry Ann Nash’s son, brought the house to their feet in thunderous applause as he closed with Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror.”
