King, aka “The Bluz Queen: Claudette King.”
The packed day of performances, known as the “Gospel Blues Brunch,” kicks off at Noon with William Fagin leading people in prayer and a scripture reading by Vanessa Walker. Emcee Mark Weber will introduce artists throughout the day. As it’s the “Gospel Blues Brunch,” there will be complimentary food and beverages while supplies last, so get to the fest (on Old Falls Street near Rainbow Blvd. in downtown Niagara Falls) early.
After introductions, Richie Derwald will sing Gospel hymns in the style of Elvis Presley, followed by Marsha McWilson performing several stirring songs backed by Anthony Taylor and The Beautiful Music Band and The Go Go Girls backing singers: Kellie, Sherrie, Carolyn and Shania. McWilson will then turn the stage over to several of her musical friends, including the band Jesus Centered Music (Praise & Worship), rapper Oral Roberts (Caribbean Calypso), Angel Vox from Africa (Family Group), Men In White (Male Singing Group), Cathy Townsend from Chicago (Gospel Jazz Blues), Malcolm Wilson & Joshua’s Generation (Traditional Gospel Choir), Ezra Scott (Traditional Quartet Singing), Ella E.
