MILWAUKEE -- If you like gospel music -- get your dancing shoes ready! GospelFest is coming to the Fiserv Forum on Friday, April 10. The announcement was made during a news conference on Friday, Dec. 20.
"It will be a fantastic evening of performances, nationally headlining acts. This is going to be a one-of-a-kind event that we hope to produce every Good Friday for a very long time in Milwaukee," said Peter Feigin, Milwaukee Bucks president.
"GospelFest itself is all about bringing the community together along with bringing the very best in gospel music to Milwaukee," said Curtis Farrow, GospelFest Executive Director.
The fest will feature more than 90 local acts followed by star talent -- including gospel singer Yolanda Adams.
Festival-goers will experience all types of Christian choirs, and a variety of music, even hip hop.
Auditions will start the third week of January, and approximately 90 artists will be announced by Feb. 1.
"When I do auditions, everyone comes out because everyone's got a different spirit," said Farrow.
