Chronicle Staff Report

Beautiful weather and pitch-perfect music helped attract a healthy-sized crowd to the Dixie Classic Fair Clock Tower Sunday for The Chronicle’s first 2012 Gospel Fest concert.

The sound of gospel music stood out among a sea of fast rides, palate-whetting food and an assortment of other amusement park attractions.

More than half-a-dozen acts performed over the course of three hours. Each set themselves apart with a sound all their own. Their performances were rewarded with hearty applause and similar affirmations from a crowd that grew to standing room only by the time the music ended.

The second and final 2012 Gospel Fest concert will take place on Sunday, Oct. 7 at the Clock Tower. Sunday’s acts include Jeremiah Salter & Nu Praise, Pastor George Pass II & NEW, Peace of Mind, Ministry, Bishop Steve Williams & The Praise Singers and Raymond & Kim Larkin.

The concert is free with the price of admission to the Dixie Classic Fair.
