Singers and World Beat Band To Perform to Benefit the Rosser Family
Friday, June 3rd at 7 pm

The Jubilee! Singers and the World Beat Band will be putting on a benefit concert for the Rosser family on Friday, June 3rd at 7 pm. The first half of the concert will be a selection of uplifting music that the Jubilee! Singers have performed throughout the season. The World Beat Band will also be performing their rockin’, soulful music the second half as a fun dance party for the cause. As many of you know, after seventeen years, Lynn Rosser, had to step down as Coordinator of the Jubilee! Singers. Her son has serious heart issues and is currently on the transplant list. Lynn is dedicating her time to his caretaking and being ready when a donor comes through. We are asking for a $10 donation at the door for admission. However, if you are able to give more for the cause to help out this wonderful sweet family, it is definitely welcomed!
If you are interested in joining the choir and singing for this cause, the rehearsal will be during the Jubilee! Singers rehearsal on Wednesday night, June 1st, from 6 to 8:30 pm.
