The weather was beautiful and the sun was shining bright on Sunday evening as Buffalo came together at a Gospel Concert on Jefferson Avenue designed to help uplift community members after the tragic domestic terrorist attack in May.
Organized by the Upper Room COGIC, the Buffalo Still Standing Relief Concert featured several local and national gospel artists who all gathered together in Buffalo's Cold Springs neighborhood to perform gospel music. The event featured Nia Badger, Lady Kathy Bowman, Jaimier Hennegan, and DaMarka Wheeler, who was a finalist on Season 7 of BET's 'Sunday Best'.
Additionally, national gospel artists Randy Weston & Judah Band and Geoffrey Golden were also featured.
The concert, sponsored in part by Canisius College, Church Mutual Insurance, New York State Senator Tim Kennedy, Masten District Common Councilman Ulysees O. Wingo Sr., took place on the Canisius College campus, in their Spillman Lot, located on the corner of on Jefferson Avene and Florida Street. It was directly across the street from the Upper Room Church of God in Christ and Upper Room COGIC Food Pantry which served as the primary host.
The primary goal of this free concert was to help bring some joy back to Buffalo's eastside, along with promoting healing, love, and fellowship. What better way to do that than with food and music.
We're so excited to be able to do this for Buffalo, we really need some uplifting in our neighborhood.
-Cynthia Benning, Director of the Upper Room COGIC Food Pantry, and Organizer of the Buffalo Standing Still Relief Concert
