On January 24th, I attended a birthday celebration for Charmaine Swimpson, one of gospel artist Kirk Franklin's background singers. The standing room only concert was held at Mt. Lebanon Baptist Church in Suffolk VA. The Sunday evening began with Hollywood-style red carpet interviews by Rejoice 100.9's Brotha Ray, co-host of the radio show "On Stage With Earl Bynum". Performers included Patrick Riddick & D'vyne Worship, Coko Clemons (formerly of SWV), TaMyya J, 7 Sons of Soul, Michael M. Smith and many others. Here are a few moments from the evening.
