North Central College's 26th annual Gospel Extravaganza, celebrating Black History Month, features performances by area choirs, a praise dancer and student readers.

The extravaganza begins at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15, in the college's Wentz Concert Hall at the Fine Arts Center, 171 E. Chicago Ave., Naperville. Tickets are $15 adults, $10 students and senior citizens. To order, call (630) 637-7469 or visit northcentralcollege.edu.

The extravaganza will feature performances by North Central College's Voices of Praise gospel choir; the Joliet Central High School Gospel Choir, New Era; and an extended program by the Wheaton College Gospel Choir.

In addition, there will be a special performance by praise dancer Glorielle Williams and original readings about the meaning of Black History Month by two North Central College students, sophomore John Arrington of Harvey and sophomore DeVonne Smith of Lockport.

The mission of North Central College's Voices of Praise gospel choir is to minister to the college community, advance cultural awareness and diversity through traditional and contemporary gospel choir music, serve the wider community, and promote faith, love and acceptance in an enriching environment.
