Gospel music, which helps proclaim the good news of the Kingdom of God, is being kept alive by the tireless efforts of some of the biggest names in Gospel.

A free concert to support the construction of the National Museum of Gospel Music in Chicago is bringing out Donnie McClurkin, Kirk Franklin, Marvin Sapp, Travis Greene, Tamela Mann, Smokie Norful, Shirley Caesar, and many more.

ABC 7 Chicago reports that on September 27 at 6 p.m., singers will come together for the glorious and charitable concert at Apostolic Faith Church, 3843 S. Indiana Ave.

Though the concert is free, seating is limited. Tickets are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The museum is being developed by Don Jackson, CEO of Central City Productions and founder of the Stellar Gospel Music Awards and architect Dirk Lohan of Wight & Company.

A soft opening is targeted for April 2020, the month designated by President Barack Obama as Gospel Music Heritage Month.

The preservation of Gospel music is a unifying goal that continues to rally support from artists, executives and lovers of the genre.
