JONESVILLE — Canned or other non-perishable goods will be the price of admission to a concert by the Naomi & The Segos gospel group at 6 p.m. Sunday at The Potters Storehouse.
Pastor Don Moore said the purpose of the concert is to help the church’s food ministry restore its stock which was seriously depleted during last Saturday’s food distribution in which more than 2,000 people received food and other necessities.
Since then, Moore said he has received calls from more people asking for the church’s help and he has had to tell them the church must first rebuild its stocks of food, including canned and other non-perishable items. He said the church is also having to replenish its supplies for its next distribution which will be held Oct. 27.
“We’re asking that people go into their pantries and cabinets and get out a can or two of food or some other non-perishable foods and bring it to the concert,” Moore said. “Their donation will be their price of admission to the concert.”
Moore said the church is able to stage the concert because Naomi & The Segos have agreed to perform for free. However, he said a love offering will be collected for the gospel group.
A flier provided by Moore states that Naomi & The Segos have been performing since the 1950s and gained national attention with their first radio hit, “Satisfied with Me.” It also states that the group became the first in history to sell more than a million records of a gospel song with their recording of “Sorry, I Never Knew You.”
The Potters Storehouse is located 618 Pacolet St. (S.C. 18), Jonesville.
