I had a very successful trip May 12-19, 2008 to Lyon, France to participate in the Absolut Gospel Festival produced by Diva Sabine Kouli. Ms. Kouli was the musical director of the Gospels 4 Life Belgium tour. Also on the trip were Sandi Blair, Dionne Freeney-McClain & Lisa McClain-Freeney. The festival included a concert at a church in the mountains of the French Alps. I will be returning to the Festival next year doing a concert on the music & life of Gospel great Mahalia Jackson. Lyon is a quaint & delightful city that’s much like Paris, but laid back. I’ll be adding a few photos of the trip to the Photo Gallery in the near future.
