“The last time I saw Elvis, he was singing a gospel song,” wrote Canadian-American guitarist, singer songwriter activist Neil Young. “You could tell he had the feeling, and the whole world sang along.”
There’s going to be some great gospel music in concert on Mill Street in Sylvania on Friday, Aug. 7 at 6:30 p.m. It isn’t going to be Elvis, but instead, three generations of gospel singers will be sharing their songs.
The songs that George Ogden, his daughter Christa Haflett, and granddaughter Deanna Haflett will be singing include Have a Little Talk with Jesus, Sweet Beulah Land, and One pair of Hands.
“I’ve been doing gospel ever since Bible College,” said Ogden. “I graduated in 1970.”
Christa Haflett has done duets with her dad for many years. She was in Cobblestones during high school. Deanna Haflett has done solos at various churches. She was in high school chorus for several years.
The Outdoor Gospel Music concert is free to attend and will be hosted by Mill Street Treats. It will be located at the first house on the left after turning onto Mill Street, right in back of Mill Street Treats.
The porch of the cream colored house will be the stage. There will be a place to set up chairs on the street. Bring a chair; come and enjoy the music.
Iced tea, lemonade and iced coffee will be for sale from Mill Street Treats.
“We’d appreciate if everyone followed social distancing protocols for the sake of everyone’s safety,” said John Seeley.
George Ogden added, “Come share God’s Word in music.”
