SCLC Sprint Artist Tribute | Lisa McClendon in KC

Despite the cold, cold weather here in Kansas City, several hundred young adults were warmed with good ol' contemporary gospel music Saturday evening at the UMKC Spencer Theater.

The Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), Sprint and UMKC, hosted their annual 'Sprint Artist Tribute' Saturday evening. This is the first of many events that I will be photographing as KC leads up to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s national holiday. The Kansas City Boys and Girls Choir of Greater Kansas City, UMKC Conservatory of Music and Dance Ensembles, and Soul Serenade featuring Mia Ramsey all performed on stage. The guest of honor was national gospel recording artist, Lisa McClendon. Lisa sang several hit songs from her new CD including her hit single, "Pause" as well as "Holy". You gotta check her out! After the concert, Lisa stayed after to sign autographs and take pictures with hundreds of children, young adults and parents.
