Gospel Sing Celebrates 25 Years

by APU Life

Worship means different things to different people. Yet, whether personal and private or festive and corporate, it gives praise, honor, and glory to God in countless ways and forms as varied as the Kingdom itself. Celebrating that diversity, the 25th Annual Gospel Sing, sponsored by the Student Center for Reconciliation and Diversity, drew more than 1,000 people from APU, the local community, and churches throughout Los Angeles on February 6, 2016, to the Felix Event Center.

The theme this year, Sounds of Unity, drew inspiration from Psalm 133:1, which says, “Behold, how good and pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity” (KJB). Pastor Albert Tate from Fellowship Monrovia served as the master of ceremonies. Performers Ty Snow and Xtreme Purpose, Greater L.A. Cathedral Choir, and Lorenzo Johnson highlighted the evening and introduced audiences to a wide array of gospel music interpretations. Joining them, the APU Gospel Choir, APU Worship Team, UMOJA step team, VFO dance group, and spoken-word artist Michael Henderson rounded out the stellar performances and brought the audience to its feet, reminding performers and attendees alike that God created His children to worship Him in harmony and unity.
