"Singing together in unity," that's what one local minister of music says which has been his dream for years, but Bobby Boone, Sr. is not just talking about it. He's taking steps to make this dream a definite reality.
Singers and musicians from all across the CSRA are coming together for one common goal. The CSRA Fellowship Choir is hear today because of Boone's dream to see everyone sing together in perfect harmony.
"The choir started as a dream of mine to have the community come together to sing and worship and praise God," Boone says. He adds, "It's not just as a single church body, but as one community in the CSRA."
Fun. Family. Fellowship. That's what the CSRA Fellowship Choir is all about. This special group of people are made up of different choirs and churches from all across the CSRA. Participants say that they look forward to being apart of this group because it's an opportunity to fellowship with folks they don't get to see every Sunday.
Coming together for a common cause. That's the theme and spirit of the CSRA Fellowship Choir, which Boone feels may be missing in our churches today.
"It's really good to be able to do something for the community that impacts us for in a positive way," he says. "We have so much going on in our community with the divide and the things we do."
He says he feels the church is one of the most segerated institutions in this country. "We say we're doing things for the Lord, but I think the Lord would want us to come together," Boone adds.
With the CSRA fellowship choir, Boone hopes that the coming together of these different individuals will inspire everyone. Overall, this group of spirited and gifted singers are looking forward to worshipping and spreading their gift of singing to the residents of the CSRA.
The CSRA Fellowship Choir Concert will take place Sunday, July 21, 2013 at the Beulah Grove Baptist Church starting at 4 PM.
