Gospel artist Jonathan Nelson is headlining Mosaic Praise Sept. 6 at Halton Theater. The gospel celebration brings together local praise teams, liturgical dancers and Christian poets to raise money to fight hunger.

Mosaic Praise, a gospel celebration bringing together some of the area’s best praise teams, liturgical dancers and Christian poets, will be held Sept. 6 at 7 p.m. at the Dale F. Halton Theater, 1206 Elizabeth Ave., to raise funds to fight hunger in Charlotte’s African-American community. Award-winning gospel artist Jonathan Nelson will headline the event.

According to thefoodeffect.org, one in five North Carolina children under the age of 18 is hungry. For children younger than five, the number jumps to 24 percent.

“While many of us are trying to figure out what to eat, some of our neighbors are trying to figure out if they will eat,” said Tasha Burks, publisher of Mosaic Magazine and founder of Mosaic Praise. “Music transcends age, race, economic and cultural barriers. We’re excited to have an artist of Jonathan’s stature join us in the fight against local hunger.”

In addition to scheduled performances, the celebration will also include a variety of vendors.

Proceeds from the event will help purchase bulk-food items for the performers to deliver to their communities.

Advanced tickets are $10 for students and $20 for adults. Tickets will be $25 at the door. Visit mosaic-magazine.com or call (704) 330-6534 to purchase tickets.
