The LeMoyne-Owen College celebrates music, art, students' talent and the faith-based community at its annual talent showcase that is free and open to the public.
The Williams Brothers, who have spread the gospel through song since 1960, will be the featured artists at The LeMoyne-Owen College's LOC Celebration Sunday on April 7.
LOC's annual free art and music talent showcase will begin at 4 p.m. at the Cannon Center dowtown. Each year, the college sponsors the event to thank the community for its support throughout the year.
The Williams Brothers are a Grammy-nominated group, and a two-time Stellar Award winner. Along with The Williams Brothers, LeMoyne-Owen College students will showcase their talents in music, art, poetry and dance.
LOC students, faculty, staff and volunteers also will deliver a command repeat performance of "Journey in Justice," an artistic presentation of the college's 150-year history. It features music, dancing and live narration performed by LOC alum Myron Lower.
