The Concert Series Committee of Grace Presbyterian Church (USA), 3901 Carver School Road, will welcome The Healing Force for a concert on Sunday, March 17 at 4 p.m.
The Healing Force was founded in 1975 by the husband and wife team of Joseph and Gail Anderson, who acted with the Afro-American Folkloric Troupe and studied with the National Black Theatre of New York. The Healing Force eventually grew to include the couple’s daughter, Sonji, and son, Karim.
Together, this performing family presents programs designed to encourage positive behavior, provide creative opportunities and enrich the educational experiences of its listeners. They have traveled the country and appeared at venues such as the National Storytelling Festival, the Bay Area Storytelling Festival and numerous schools, colleges, churches, museums, festivals, family reunions and community events.
The Healing Force turns any performance into a celebration of African culture and spirit, where audience participation is a standard.
The concert is free, however, there will be an offering taken during intermission.
Rudolph V. Boone Sr. is chairman of the Concert Series Committee. Rev. Touré C. Marshall is the senior pastor of Grace Presbyterian Church.
