Smokie Norful performs his part of 'Are You Listening?'

*The Founder of the annual Gospel Heritage Praise and Worship Conference and Publisher of Gospel Today magazine, Dr. Teresa Hairston, has assembled numerous messengers of faith, preachers, and humanitarians to lend their voices of devotion to the recent tragic victims of the earthquake in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

It is Dr. Hairston’s mission to preserve the Gospel heritage and perpetuate the Gospel legacy, which is to help each other in times of need, and this is a time that the gospel community must collectively come together and preserve the rights of humanity by way of prayer, donations and selfless giving.

Dr. Teresa Hairston

Dr. Hairston is requesting that all committed people of God’s word or for those people just walking in faith, support this mission.

On Friday, February 19, 2010 at the Bethel Baptist Church, 215 Bethel Street in Jacksonville, Florida, beginning 7:00 pm, Dr. Hairston will assemble some of the strongest leaders in the Gospel entertainment community:

Kirk Franklin, Donald Lawrence, Bishop Hezekiah Walker, Johnathan Nelson, Bishop Paul Morton, Vanessa Bell Armstrong, Pastor Donnie McClurkin, Bishop Rudolph McKissick (Bethel Baptist Church host), Bishop Noel Jones and a special tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s daughter, Elder Bernice King and Jacksonville’s own, Pastor DeWayne Harvey and the Praise Team of Greater Tabernacle of Praise, among others!

It would be the direction of Dr. Hairston to take the first fifteen minutes of the program into prayer for the victims of Haiti. This effort will be met with song, “Are You Listening” the Artists United For Haiti’s landmark song with also a visual presentation of the music video.

The 2010 Gospel Heritage Praise & Worship Conference is not a concert, it is where we all gather to lift and be uplifted to learn and to give honor to our legacy and then we appreciate the music of gospel. It generates, uplifts and inspires. We are happy to have the 2010 Gospel Heritage Praise and Worship Conference in the wonderful city of Jacksonville, Florida.

This conference is a two-day event starting on February 18 – February 19, 2010. Please visit: for more information.
