NEW ORLEANS - It was in the summer of 1987 when Valentine Bemiss Williams gathered a number of young people from various churches to learn about Jesus through gospel music.
The group is still together praising and worshiping 25 years later.
With the theme "One Thing That I Desire," Val and Love Alive Mass Choir is holding a special silver anniversary celebration Friday night.
Williams and Joseph Dorsey joined us with more information.
The 25th Year Praise Celebration Musical is at 7 p.m. at New Hope Baptist Church on Lasalle Street.
For more information, call 400-6068.
We were lucky to hear a preview from the choir on Monday.
