WHERE: Central Presbyterian Church, 1660 Sherman Street, Denver, CO 80203Dianne Reeves has lived an extraordinary storied singing career spanning over three decades. Her breathtaking talent has touched the souls of millions of people. For all her greatness, she has an energetic middle school music teacher to thank for helping her discover her passion. Dianne met Bennie L. Williams (affectionately known as Ms. Bennie) back in the 70’s while Dianne was a middle school student at Hamilton Junior High School in Denver, Colorado. It was during this time, that Ms. Bennie recognized Dianne’s immense talent and began nurturing her beautiful voice. Over the years, both tutor and student formed a strong friendship as they followed their paths of sharing the gift of music. Between a busy international tour schedule, Dianne has committed to thanking her old friend by joining the Bennie L. Williams Spiritual Voices in a concert on Saturday, September 6th at Denver’s Central Presbyterian Church, located at 1660 Sherman Street. The evening will open with a silent auction beginning at 6:00 P.M. The concert, showcasing the talents of both Dianne Reeves and the BLW Spiritual Voices, will begin at 7:30 P.M., with a special V.I.P. reception to follow. BLW Spiritual Voices has gained well-deserved acclaim performing choral arrangements of spirituals, the songs that arose out of communities of enslaved Africans from the 18th and 19th centuries. The group has performed this hauntingly beautiful music in the Denver area and nationally – at the National Association of Negro Musicians conventions in Las Vegas and Colorado Springs; at the Heritage Festival of Spirituals in Baton Rouge, LA; and at the Ebony Chorale’s 30th Anniversary Celebration in West Palm Beach, FL. The concert will be a tribute to Civil Rights leader and Professor Emeritus at the Iliff School of Theology, Dr. Vincent Harding, who recently passed away in May.
