Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. began their annual week this year with a Gospel Extravaganza entitled, “Gospel Night in Grambling.” The Gospel Extravaganza is a new event for the sorority. ” The chapter decided to do something new this year. We felt that we need to give God praise for all of the things that He has done for us in our personal lives as well as our for our sorority,” said President Ashley Curry.
The Gospel extravaganza kicked off at 7:40 pm in the T.H. Harris auditorium. Master of Cermony, Anthony Cheathiem and Mistress of Cermony, Jazmine Lewis welcomed the audience and the program began.
The extravaganza was not just filled with wonderful rendentions of gospel songs. Other forms of praise and worship were used during the program such as the religious poems performed by Juliana Mitcheal and Harold Green.
“I liked that there wasn’t just singing at the Gospel extravaganza. God accepts praise in many different forms. If we learn how to praise God in different forms maybe we would be able to minister to those people who don’t worship the traditional way,” said Chanel Carter. The program began with a praise dance from the GSU Orchesis Dance Company.
Other performers were Leona Williams and Chandri Morton who sang solos, a praise dance in mime by Cortez McNairy. “The mime dancer was very soul stirring, I felt his dance was great,” said freshman, Ron Dailey.
The Mt. Harmony Choir, Entourage, and Inspiration of Praise small ensamble also performed. The Gospel extravaganza was a great success.
