Tyscot Records, the oldest-existing black gospel label in the world, is celebrating its 40th anniversary with a “Gospel Music Explosion” concert this week. Dr. Leonard Scott, the company’s founder and an acclaimed recording artist himself, will perform on the show taking place this Friday, September 23, 2016 @7:00 PM at the Pike Performing Arts Center (Pike High School), 6701 Zionsville Road in Indianapolis, IN. Dr. Scott has recorded 13 albums including his latest “Greatness of Your Love.” He’s best known for his dynamic worship songs such as “Pentecostal Praise Medley,” “My Body Belongs To God” and his latest radio single “Feel Good” from the anthology anniversary album “Feel Good! 40 Years of Life Changing Music.” We wonder if Dr. Scott, who played in an R&B band back in the day, will break-out and play his guitar this Friday?
Many artists from Tyscot’s past will be in attendance for the big concert starring the Grammy Award nominated group Anthony Brown & group therAPy, the legendary Rance Allen Group, Ruth La’Ontra, the New Revelation Dance Ministry, Drumline, Shoo Up & Sho Out and the comedian Fo’ Sho (aka Donald Martin). Anthony Brown & group therAPy is the hottest gospel artist in the gospel music industry right now. The 10X Stellar Gospel Music Award winning group is known for songs such as “Testimony,” the No. 1 smash “Worth” and its current Top Ten radio single “Bless The Lord.” Rance Allen Group are gospel music legends with over 40 years of hits behind them. Over the years, they’ve recorded signature songs such as “Miracle Worker,” “Something About The Name of Jesus” and “I Belong To You.” Ruth La’Ontra is putting the finishing touches on her sophomore album that was produced by Anthony Brown. It’s scheduled to release in 2017. For ticket information, please call (317) 319-0494. www.joyfulsoundproductions.com
