Free Gospel Sundays

| February 12, 2013 | Calendar

The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, in partnership with Miami gospel radio station WMBM 1490 AM, proudly present DOROTHY NORWOOD as part of the popular 2012-13 FREE GOSPEL SUNDAYS concert series. Hosted by audience favorite CALVIN HUGHES, evening anchor on ABC Local 10, February’s FREE GOSPEL SUNDAYS concert will celebrate Black History Month on Sunday, February 17 at 4 p.m. with a rousing performance by DOROTHY NORWOOD, along with the MIAMI MASS CHOIR.

DOROTHY NORWOOD, known as the World’s Greatest Storyteller, has been ministering for more than five decades. She began her career at age 8 singing alongside the indelible Mahalia Jackson. She eventually shared the stage with gospel greats Reverend James Cleveland and Albertina Walker and in 1972, in an unprecedented ministry move, became the opening act for Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones National Tour. Songs such as “Victory is Mine,” featured in the Oscar Award-winning movie “The Help,” and “Somebody Prayed for Me” have earned DOROTHY NORWOOD countless honors including two Dove Award nominations, six Grammy nominations and three albums appearing on Billboard’s Top 40. Fifty-six years later, Dorothy’s ministry continues to flourish and remain a mainstay in the gospel world with her latest album, “God’s Been Just That Good.”
