Both contemporary and traditional Christian music sounds will be featured in An Afternoon of Praise 2015, slated for Sunday, August 23rd at Talladega’s Historic Ritz Theatre, . This 3rd annual event will feature more than 120 singers and musicians from throughout North Central Alabama. Concerts will begin at both 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.

These family concerts will feature songs written by Christian artists Matt Maher, Chris Tomlin, Ed Cash, Stephan Sharp, Michael W. Smith, Jesse Reeves, Jonas Myrin, Matt Redman, Rita Baloche, Tommy Walker, Tim Hughes, Matthew Hooper, Richie Fike, Travis Ryan, Toby McKeehan, Jamie Moore, and Cary Barlowe. With the exception of two songs, all music is arranged and orchestrated by Richard Kingsmore, who will also conduct the choir and orchestra.

Admission is a $15 ticket and a couple of bags of non-perishable food items. All proceeds from ticket sales go directly to The Red Door Kitchen and all non-perishable food items collected at the concerts go to The Samaritan House.

Each month, The Red Door Kitchen feeds over 3,500 meals to those in the Talladega community who are homebound or otherwise unable to obtain proper nutrition. The Samaritan House provides non-perishable food and clothing to those in need.

Last year’s Afternoon of Praise resulted in a donation of $6,500 to The Red Door Kitchen and four truckloads of non-perishable food items plus $500 to The Samaritan House in Talladega. Expectations are for larger donations this year. Together, we can make a real and positive difference!
