Taste of Soul

Location: R.A. Fountain

Tonight’s show featured several local and regional gospel, rhythm & blues, and soul singers, including Mrs. Lillie Jackson, Ms. Odelphis Davis–who presented a tribute to Billie Holiday, James Mitchell, Woody Bynum, the Walkers of Faith, and the Hawkins Family. Most were participants at this year’s Martin Luther King Day celebration in Fountain at which everyone had such a good time that Mayor Shirley Mitchell has gotten all the singers together again–with a lot more time for each to perform.
