Get Up and Dance! May 08 2007

After my first trip to Mamelodi people always asked "what was the most significant thing that you experienced?" Certainly I could have answered: the devastation that AIDS has caused, the poverty, the hunger, the broken families. It's true, these things did impact me but the answer I always gave was an unexpected one: "the music." For South Africans music is an integral part of their culture, their life and their soul. When South Africans gather in song it raises the roof; it is nothing short of inspirational. You have the rare opportunity to experience the Sound and Songs from South Africa on Sunday, May 20th at 6:00 pm. Hospice of Cincinnati is hosting a free concert at Crossroads that will include the Charity and Faith Worship Team from Mamelodi, South Africa and the Christ Emmanuel Worship team from Cincinnati. All the profits from the event will benefit the Bophelong Hospice in Mamelodi. Oh, one more thing. Beaded Hope will be a featured vendor at this event with 100% of the profits that we raise going to the Bophelong Hospice!
