Black History month is again here and many organizations have been offering a variety of events in the San Diego area.
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.
