It was an afternoon of gospel music in one eastern Kentucky town.
Choirs from at least seven local churches belted out some soulful music for in the first Gospel Fest at the new McRoberts Community Center in Letcher County. Organizers of the event say this is one more way to bring the community together and give the youth a chance to be part of something positive.
"We have a lot of entertainers from local churches and all that will be here today, and we're just going to have 5 hours of fun and music and love amongst the people," says James Scott with the Committee For a Better McRoberts.
The Committee For a Better McRoberts is also working to remodel a local building into a recreation center for the community.
