Gospel music lovers will get to enjoy popular local group 2V6 featuring the Refuge Full Gospel Methodist Church Male Chorus as well as songstress Debra McKinney plus T-Won Tha Gospel Godfather. Adult Contempory music lovers who enjoy that Erykah Badu style of Neo-Soul will certainly be feeling the selections of Gem Avery who just released her new album "Gas Money".Alabama9s own Jackie Chain from Huntsville, AL. who just signed a recording contract with Universal/Motown records in May of this year will also be at the festival along with local Jacksonville group L.N.O. and Anniston native Ricko aka #1 Draft Pick as co-host of the Hip Ho Block Party that evening. The Festival features entertainers from Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, Kentucky, Florida, Louisianna, Virginia and even Massachusetts home of the singing group Ahmir currently pushing a song produced by platinum selling producer Kevein "Khao" Cates who is from Montgomery, AL.
This Juneteenth event--"An Emancipation Celebration" is the largest program of its kind in Alabama that celebrates events that took place in Texas on June 19, 1865 that led to the final ending of slavery in the United States. Activities include Blues and R&B bands, live entertainment, dancing, talent contest, a step competition, Hip-Hop block party, Gospel concert & choir sing, food vendors, arts & crafts, business exhibits and kiddie amusements. This is a family affair. Admission is free.
The Juneteenth Heritage Festival is not a funded event with standing sponsors. This program is planned and organized each year by volunteers from the community who engage in fundraising to cover operations and have formed the Juneteenth Heritage Board of Anniston.
