Looking for a gospel play? Vanessa Lynn’s SOUL CUSTODY on August 30th may be just the ticket.
(Sponsor Ad)

Detroit native and national playwright Vanessa Lynn is back with her next compelling stage play “Soul Custody.” The
Thomas family are pillars in the community. Upstanding citizens with a
stellar reputation for honesty, community service and for all intents
and purposes, seem to be the picture of success, wealth and happiness.
Little does anyone know, behind the white picket fence, luxurious home
and country club membership, is a family consumed by lies, manipulation
and a devastating life-changing secret that could tear their world
apart. When the truth is finally revealed, the picture of this perfect
family is broken and it rocks them to their foundation. Stuck in the
middle is Joi, a happy and vibrant young lady full of life and energy,
until she finds out the truth about the family she has adored her
entire life. Now both sides of the family are fighting for her love and
it leads to a bitter custody battle that reveals more lies and
manipulation! But as the Thomas’ fight for the best interest of Joi,
will they lose her in the process?

With a string
of national DVD’s and hit stage plays such as Unequally Yoked, Boss
Lady, Affairs and contributing writer of Angela Barrow-Dunlap’s Church
Girl, When Men Pray and Deranged, Vanessa Lynn’s Soul Custody will not disappoint!

Saturday, August 30, 2014. Two Big Shows Only, 3PM – $20 and 7PM

Fred Hammond
“I Will Trust”

Detroit’s own Fred Hammond recently debuted his hot new single, “I
Will Trust,” on Facebook and the response was tremendous.  “I Will
Trust” is Hammond’s personal testimony birthed from his recent double
knee replacement surgery and is the first single from Hammond’s
forthcoming album of the same name.

Fred shared that after his
surgery, simple tasks like going to the restroom or putting on his socks
felt almost impossible without assistance. In a recent press release
Fred was quoted as saying, “This was a low point for me…as I lay
there in bed often times with tears running down my face
uncontrollably… I would whisper to myself ‘I have to trust Him,’ ‘I
must trust Him,’ ‘I will trust you’.
