Praise concert lifts spirits

ST. PETERSBURG — The “Praising The Lord Concert” transformed the Bethel Community Baptist Church pulpit into a spiritual spectacle of worship through gospel songs, praise dance ministry and special tribute Sat., Sept 12.

Show promoter and sponsor Danny O’Neill watched as the laser-style lighting and stage fog created a spiritual vision of worship and praise that was beautifully executed by the performances of Tasha Page Lockhart, Chosen, Cepeda McKay and No Limits and the Edifyed Praisers.

The highlight of the evening was a special tribute to India Welch, one of the three sisters who died in a horrific car crash on the way home from a church convention this past August. Her parents, Pastor Ricardo Welch and First Lady Darlene, were present and received flowers and a standing ovation prior to the beginning of a special slide show presentation honoring the spiritual worship and praise work of India who was a brave and creatively gifted warrior for Christ.
