MLK Community Choir San Diego


Black History month is again here and many organizations have been offering a variety of events in the San Diego area.
The Martin Luther King Community Choir of San Diego(also known as the M L K Choir-Director Pastor Kenneth Anderson) is in concert season raising money for scholarships to present to deserving young musicians across the county. This philanthropic choir, with a vast sacred repertoire, gives stellar performances both in the U.S. and in Europe. Their program "All 'Bout The Blues" with the San Diego Children's choir Neighborhood Choir was a standing room only event.1

This particular concert at the Logan Heights Branch Library allowed the public to enjoy a different facet of the MLK Choir's musical depth, flexibility and range. The performance included blues music by such greats as Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Nat King Cole, Nina Simone, Bessie Smith and Fats Waller.

Pastor and professor Ken Anderson has been a source of inspiration for many in San Diego. His Gospel Choir at UCSD often totals in the hundreds. Click onto one of their inspirational videos.

As we mid-February, look for other Black History events in your area.
