Oklahoma Gospel Singing Revivals is presenting its Second Annual Summer Singing Revival at McAlester’s Rotary Park Amphitheater this weekend.
It’s set to begin at 4 p.m. on Saturday and continue until approximately 9 p.m.
Artists scheduled to sing include the Mize Family, Righteous Tree, the Black Family, the Latty Family, 6:4 Him, Richard Carr and Terrell White.
With a lineup that includes a mixture of solo singers and bands, a variety of gospel music is planned, ranging from traditional to southern gospel, country gospel and contemporary Christian music. The lineup includes some local artists, as well as musical artists from other parts of Oklahoma and from Arkansas.
Last summer’s singing at Rotary Park was well-attended and organizers are hoping for a good turnout for this summer’s event as well. Limited seating is available on the amphitheater bleachers, so those attending are advised to bring their lawn chairs if they’re not counting on the amphitheater seating.
“Come on out and bring a lawn chair and spend Saturday with us,” said Cindi Mize, of Oklahoma Gospel Singing Revivals. Concessions will be available during the singing.
Oklahoma Gospel Singing Revivals is committed to uplifting spirits and spreading a Christian message and ministry through songs and music.
“We are a team of ministers and singers from different backgrounds, denominations and areas of ministry,” the group’s mission statement reads. “We actively minister and pray for people as they make their needs known at our event, as we feel led.”
Oklahoma Gospel Singing Revivals is not affiliated with any specific denomination.
“The goal of the ministry is to lift up and minister to all people without judgment,” the mission statement continues.
Rotary Park is adjacent to the J.I. Stipe Center at 801 N. Ninth St., off Monroe Avenue.
