GospelBlessed -N- Blessings Gospel Concert is Friday, July 21 at 7 p.m. at Fayetteville State University’s Seabrook Auditorium.

Apostle Alber “Trevy” Treadwell, emcee and promoter of the event, said concert attendees will experience “a hand-clapping, toe-tapping, exciting good time in the Lord.”

Treadwell said the event is two-fold. The first is because it celebrates Treadwell’s several decades of preaching.

Secondly, it is to be a blessing in the community.

Treadwell’s ministry, Treadwell Evangelistic Empowerment Ministries Inc. is uniting with Church of the Living God Religious Education Center’s Pastor Dr. Calvin Vanbeverhoudt.

He and Vanbeverhoudt have known each other for years and this is the first gospel concert event they’ve done together.

It was a vision Vanbeverhoudt had to bring people together after the pandemic and bring them into an atmosphere of praise and worship.

Treadwell said this event benefits the community because a good portion of the proceeds that are raised from ticket sales will go back to Fayetteville community nonprofits.

They chose to have the concert at FSU because it allows them to encourage the community, give back to education and the community as a whole, he said.

“We believe Jesus plus education equals success,” Treadwell said. “We couldn’t have found a better way to give back to Fayetteville State [than] by hosting an event there. Why not pour back into education by hosting the event?”

Led by the spirit of the Lord
Treadwell said that music is soothing and provides encouragement to the soul.

“Whether you’re a fan of secular or gospel music, some form of music has lifted your spirits or has encouraged a person to go one more mile,” he said.

“We just want to be obedient to the voice of the Lord and He gets the full glory out of
the event.”

The concert will also include music by Minister Jarell Smalls & Company and the Rev. Luther Barnes & The Sunset Jubilaires. Gospel comedian Elder Willie Brown will be in attendance.

Also scheduled is youth group Today’s Youth Giving God Praise. The group empowers the youth, Treadwell said. He said he witnessed performances they had where there was not a dry eye in the place because of how they minister.

“We want to take gospel music to heal the hurting hearts that are here in the community and surrounding community,” Treadwell said.
