BEVERLY HILLS—The city of Beverly Hills, the North Homeowners Associate and the Beverly Hills Municipal League will be sponsoring a free gospel concert to highlight the 25th anniversary of a concert that was held 25 years ago after the 1992 Los Angeles riots.
The Faithful Central Bible Church of Inglewood will host the performance on Sunday, January 21 at 6 p.m. at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts. According to a press release from the city of Beverly Hills, in 1992, the city co-produced a concert featuring performers from the same church, which was known as Faithful Central Missionary Baptist Church.
The aim of the concert held at the Beverly Hills High School Auditorium, was to promote unity and tolerance in the region following the riots. The video that was made of the concert won the Cable ACE Award for Best Documentary in the Cultural Affairs category. The 2018 concert will feature the renowned singers and dancers from the Faithful Central Bible Church and a brief video excerpt from the original concert.
