A free concert as part of the city of Cleveland's 175th anniversary celebration will be at Lee University's Pangle Hall beginning at 7:30 PM October 20th.
According to Mayor Tom Rowland, celebration committee chairman, the concert will be an unique evening of entertainment featuring a variety of music for all tastes.
The show will open with Lee graduate Jermain Purifory. Jermain is now lead singer with the legendary Impressions. He was a finalist on American Idol. He received the Miss Annie Award which honors the best performers at the Chattanooga Theatre Center. He won a four day all expense trip to a Grammys Award for a song he wrote. The young singer and songwriter was once a background singer for the MTV Scream awards and contributed vocals for Mary J. Blige on Bridge Over Troubled Waters. For several weeks, he was featured as a backup singer for "glee" while on Los Angeles. Jermain is an alumni of the Voices of Lee.
Also on the program is Danny Murray and the world-renowned Voices of Lee. The famous acapella group has performed around the world and featured on NBC's Sing Off seen by millions of viewers. The Voices have performed at the White House, Notre Dame and Good Morning America.
Tickets are required for the event; however, they are free. They are available at the Cleveland Daily Banner, Bank of Cleveland and the city of Cleveland Municipal Building.
Rowland urged those wishing to attend to get their tickets early as the number is limited. Rowland expressed thanks to the anniversary committee and especially to Dr. Paul Conn and Lee University for providing Pangle Hall for this fabulous evening.
