Family Focus’s 25th annual Gospel Fest took place on Aug. 7 under bright sunny skies. Children and adults, choirs and soloists raised their voices in song all afternoon in the park space between the Weissbourd-Holmes Family Focus building and Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center. Kimberly Jenkins, pictured in aRound Town, sang “Hard Times Come Again No More.” Two youth choirs, the Multicultural Children’s Choir and the Family Focus Choir, engaged the audience with their singing and enthusiasm. Gospel Fest attracted several hundred people.
