Jonathan McReynolds Featuring Anthony Brown & Travis Greene Sings At The Chicago Gospel Festival 2017 for Black Music Month
To kick off Black Music Month in Chicago this weekend June 2-3, I attended The 32nd Chicago Gospel Music Festival 2017 which took over Millennium Park with performances from The Rance Allen Group, Jonathan McReynolds with special guests Anthony Brown & Travis Greene, Vashawn Mitchell, Malcolm Williams & Great Faith, a Tribute to Jessy Dixon, Tye Tribbett and many more.
Gospel music is deeply rooted in the rich traditions of the African-American church and is celebrated each year in Chicago IL. Friday’s headline artist was Chicago’s own Jonathan McReynolds. He brought along his friends Anthony Brown and Travis Greene to help usher us in the presence of God at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park.
Chicago Music Festivals
June Marks The Beginning Of Black Music Appreciation Month , the annual city-sponsored festivals (gospel, blues, jazz, world music) all take place in Millennium Park with the downtown skyline as a backdrop throughout the summer months.
The month-long observance, which was first inducted on June 7, 1979, was created to recognize and celebrate the historical influence African-Americans have had on the music industry and is intended to pay homage to the many artists, writers, songs and albums that have shaped American pop culture and the inspiring musical moments that have brought citizens—white, black and every other skin color—together.
