Gospel Fest Shares the “Good News”: Photogallery

View PHotogalleryGospel Fest, hosted by Trinity’s Gospel Ensemble, welcomed over 250 guests, leading the College and local communities in praise and worship through Gospel-inspired music and dance.

“Gospel Fest 2014 truly was a communal time of worship where we, as a body, experienced the Good News of our Lord and Savior through song and spoken word,” said Director Nicole Saint-Victor ’12.

Featured groups included Trinity’s Gospel Ensemble as well as outside artists. The program incorporated songs sung by Youthful Praise, Kurt Carr, Stacy and Ryan Blackburn, 2GTG, Homewood Flossmoor High School choir, and others.

“The Gospel Ensemble had a desire to see diversity in those that gathered and also in the music that would be presented. I pray that the community departed with a deeper understanding that Gospel music is good news for all,” Saint-Victor said.

Members of the Gospel Ensemble felt the presence of God amongst the community of worshippers. Sierra Hernandez ’17 of Phoenix, Arizona, sings soprano for the ensemble. She was inspired by the witnessing opportunity Gospel Fest proved to be.

“Before Trinity, I didn’t really have a relationship with God, and I am still learning how to have one,” she said. “Singing is the best way I know how to talk to God. I can share my relationship with God with other people who might have been as lost as I was about a year ago.”
