As we continue to celebrate Black History Month, we recently learned more about a man who is credited as the founder of American Gospel music – Rev. Dr. Charles Albert Tindley.
While Rev. Tindley’s song-writing talent can still be heard inside churches all over the world, did you know he was born right here on Delmarva in Berlin?
Calvin Collins is a senior majoring in music at Salisbury University. He’s getting ready to pay tribute to Rev. Dr. Tindley during a concert on Friday, Feb. 22.
“The Life of Charles Albert Tindley and Hymns Which Touched Many Souls,” takes place at 7 p.m. at Wicomico Presbyterian Church in Salisbury. It is a free event, and the public is invited to attend.
Calvin gave us a preview of the concert from the Mid South Audio Stage.
