Charleston, SC, May 6, 2013 – A good time was had by all at the sold out sixth annual McDonald’s Choir Showcase. Inspirational music, community and hope were center stage at the May 5 concert at The North Charleston Performing Arts Center. The event featured songs of inspiration from the area’s most talented gospel choirs, praise and worship teams and contemporary Christian groups, as well as performances by national recording artists. “No event this size goes off without a hitch, but I watched an amazing night unfold, thanks to the hardest working event production team in the Low Country, artists who came ready to share their unique gifts and an audience who brings unbelievable energy,” said Gerald Footman, event Co-Producer and CEO, Footman-Brewer Enterprises. “Our goal is to come back each year bigger and better.”
Hammond Organ USA was a proud participating sponsor this year, and their Charleston Dealer, Fox Music, presented a new Hammond SK1-73 Keyboard to The Trinity Missionary Baptist Church Choir, who were one of the winners, with Alma Hughes accepting.
