South African Gospel Quartet, Committed, to Perform at STCC
Committed, an internationally acclaimed gospel quartet based in South Africa, will give two performances Thursday, February 8, at Southwest Tennessee Community College. The first performance is set for 10:30 a.m. at the STCC Workforce Development Center, 3545 Lamar. At 1:30 p.m. the group will perform at the Union Avenue Campus, M-Building Auditorium, 737 Union Avenue. The event is part of the College's African American History month observance. It is free and open to the public.
The I Can Foundation is responsible for bringing Committed to the United States. The Foundation is registered internationally with the primary mission of youth leadership development. Its founder, Rev. Dr. David Molapo, was educated in America. He returned to South Africa with a mission to work with programs that are designed to provide educational opportunities for youth.
Locally, Committed is being sponsored by the Mid-South Africa Consortium (MSAC). The group has a stated mission of developing a business and cultural exchange between the Lower Mississippi Delta and Africa.
Committed has been performing as a group for over a decade. The gifted singers have toured over 10 countries that include the United States, Canada, France and Italy. Memphis is one of only ten cities the performers booked for their current tour.
