Gospel groups ‘Sing HIS Praises,’ raise money for kids programs

On Jan. 16 at the Orpheum, five gospel groups performed at a concert – sponsored by Baptist Memorial Health Care – that benefited the Hattiloo Theatre’s children’s programs. Hattiloo Theatre is a black repertory theatre company that stages at least seven major productions and six special performances every season.

Baptist also commemorated the 15th anniversary of its Memphis Healthy Churches program at the event. Through Memphis Healthy Churches, Baptist provides free health education and screenings to more than 100 church health ministries, representing more than 50,000 African-American church members.
