The Lee University Evangelistic Singers (EVS) will host “Free Worship Night” on Saturday, Oct. 12, at 7 p.m. in Pangle Hall. Along with EVS, this night of worship will feature gospel singers Taron Berry, Benita Jones, and Jonathan Nelson.
“I thank God for this exciting door of opportunity that God has opened for EVS,” said Gloria Scott-Richmond, EVS director. “I’m humbled, honored, and grateful to witness God’s faithfulness and favor toward this phenomenal ensemble. Every day, on and off stage they represent our Lord, their families, and Lee University with class, integrity, and great enthusiasm!”
EVS members worship God through traditional and contemporary gospel music. The choir, made up of approximately 50 Lee students, has performed throughout Bermuda, the Caribbean, and southeastern United States.
