Gospelfest

A free Gospel concert on City Hall Plaza!

Join us for a free fun filled evening of Gospel music! 

Headlining the event will be Gospel star Tina Campbell. Tina is the sister of last year’s Gospelfest headliner Erica Campbell, and together they make up the contemporary Gospel duo Mary Mary. Famous for the songs “Heaven”, “Go Get It”, “Get Up”, and crossover hit “Shackles (Praise You)”, Tina Campbell and Mary Mary have been a consistent force in the contemporary Gospel genre since 2000.

Opening for Campbell will be Freda Battle, pastor, musician, and active member of the Gospel community in New England and nationwide. Battle is originally from Boston where she started her music career, and is looking forward to her return in August.

In addition to Campbell and Battle, the Gospelfest Community Choir will also take the stage at Gospelfest this year. This will be the third year Gospelfest will feature a Community Choir in the lineup. Bringing local talent on to the same stage where nationally recognized artists perform is a highlight of this event.

2016 will mark the sixteenth year for Gospelfest, New England’s largest Gospel music celebration.
