Pastor's concert going from Broadway to gospel


In 2000, 2001 and 2003, White presented a concert in conjunction with the Spirit & Place Festival, an Indianapolis collaborative festival of the arts, humanities and religion. Excerpts from the 2001 Spirit & Place event, "Crossing Boundaries" as well as "An Evening in Song" from 2003 have been recorded on CD.

Last year, White gave a benefit concert for the Bloomington United Methodist Church and, this year, one of her New Hope choir members, Greg Brown, suggested she have a concert in Anderson.

"The suggestion was brought before our Church Council," said White, "and they voted unanimously to have it here."

Brown said, "Rev. White has always worked for the community and this is one way to bring the community together. I really enjoy being in the choir and being part of the concert. Everyone that can come needs to come. They will enjoy it."

"Rev. Gina Kirkland, pastor at New Horizons UMC is singing in the choir and the New Horizons Family is allowing us to use their facility for the concert," said White.

Some musicians adding their talents to the concert, in addition to Raymore (directing and playing keyboard), are Teddy Patterson (sax), Dion Sanders (drums) and Michelle Murray (piano). "Murray will be playing piano for me during the first half of the concert," said Rev. White.

A freewill offering will be taken at the concert to benefit New Hope with 10 percent of the proceeds going to The Gospel Highlights Broadcast Community Thanksgiving Day Dinner which has been sponsored by James Warner for 31 years, according to White. "We want to make sure that everyone who requests a meal, gets one," said White.

Carlotta "Jo" Walker, chairperson of the Staff Parish Relations Committee at New Hope and whose husband, Sam Walker, is part of the choir, expressed appreciation for their pastor.

"Rev. White has great leadership skills; she is a people person, very loving and giving," said Walker. "I'm looking forward to the concert. She has a beautiful voice, is a beautiful person all around, has excellent leadership skills and I have really enjoyed her as a pastor and community leader."
