Grammy-nominated Joshua Nelson sings with a voice that recalls Mahalia Jackson and counts Oprah Winfrey and Maya Angelou among his biggest fans. He has sung with Wynton Marsalis, Aretha Franklin, and The Klezmatics. This extraordinary "Prince of Kosher Gospel" combines African-American spiritual styles with Jewish liturgical music. Special guests, the renowned, 55-voice Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir, directed by Terrance Kelly, open the evening.

Co-sponsored by Forest Creatures Entertainment and Leonard Kurz in memory of Ursula Sherman
