Texas Southern U. Concert

A week ago, I traveled to Houston TX to support a former choir director from my years at Tuskegee University. He's now the director of the Texas Southern University Choir. On Sunday, their Black History Month Concert was successfully held at Houston's Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church. Congratulations to the choir on one of their first big performances of the year! All of your rehearsals and hard work definitely paid off. Also, thanks to the A/V staff for video taping the concert (and for the chicken... lol).

    Thank you for the pictures of TSU’s choir and of Wheeler. I am sure TSU is really proud of the choir and it’s growth under the direction of Mr. Jackson. And as far as the chicken, you are welcome.
