The Lions for the Lamb campus ministry is sponsoring a concert this Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the Student Union Theater.
The concert, Connecting Through Praise, will feature the Southeastern Gospel Choir, Freedom Experience and Aaron Scott Kelly, formerly with Leaving Brightside.
According to Lions for the Lamb President Kaleb Saucer, Kelly has written many original songs and typically performs with an acoustic guitar. Freedom Experience, he said, performs a range of music from contemporary Christian to gospel to worship music.
Cierra Alexander, president of the gospel choir, said the 20 to 30 member choir has practiced a list of songs, but that the list is not set in stone.
“We just like to let the Holy Spirit lead us and follow from there,” she said.
Alexander said GC, or God’s Chosen, is excite about being involved with the concert.
“I am very delighted that Lions for the Lamb has contacted GC to appear in the Connecting Through Praise concert. One of our organizational goals has been to connect with other religious organizations on campus to better our college community spiritually.”
Martha Sibley, a member of Lions for the Lamb involved in planning the concert, said she is excited about the lineup of musicians, especially about the gospel choir.
“We’re excited that the gospel choir is going to be there. It gives an opportunity for all Southeastern students to go and hear them,” she said.
The event will serve as a fundraiser for Lions for the Lamb ministry in that concessions such as hot dogs, chili and frito pies will be available for purchase for an hour before the concert begins. Admission to the concert is $5 per person, but Southeastern students are admitted free with university ID.
“We hope that Southeastern students will be able to come and will enjoy a night of worship,” Saucer said.
Alexander agreed with Saucer, stating that she hopes many people’s lives will be changed through the concert.
“I am just expecting God to do what He does best, show up and show out,” she said.
