Blind Boys of Alabama to present Christmas show at Wingate University

Wingate, N.C. – On Friday, Dec. 3 at 7:30 p.m. Wingate University will present the Blind Boys of Alabama with their Christmas show “Go Tell it on the Mountain.” The performance will be held in McGee Theatre of the George A. Batte, Jr. Fine Arts Center. Tickets are $20.

The Blind Boys of Alabama are recognized worldwide as living legends of gospel music. They are celebrated by The Grammys and The National Endowment for the Arts with Lifetime Achievement Awards, inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame and winners of five Grammy® Awards. Unlike some of their old-time gospel music brethren, the Blind Boys eagerly embrace the popular music world, bringing gospel music to mainstream audiences.
