It's (Almost) Time to Praise the Lord Again

Tags: Gospel

Duke Energy Center isn’t the first place that comes to mind when the words “sacred space” are uttered, but evidently God don’t give a damn (sorry — dang) about the venue, just so long as you’re singin’, praisin’ and believin’. The big building formerly known as the Convention Center is the site of the 42nd Annual Gospel Music Workshop of America National Convention.

Aficionados and practitioners of all things Gospel, Contemporary Christian and Urban-Inspirational should check out the event, which starts on July 25.
