This special evening will feature Billboard artist, Lena Byrd Miles, the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir, and Destined2Dance. This will be an amazing evening of top-notch entertainment and a lot of good for the community. Attendance supports the Interfaith Council of Alameda County in their charitable efforts, especially their work to improve community health and safety, and to feed and care for those in need of food and shelter.
Lena Byrd Miles, Stellar Award winner, Billboard #1 My Block Inc. artist, the darling of the Oakland Bay Area has been singing since the age of 4. She launched her singing career at her grandfather’s church where she faithfully lent her gift. More than an artist, Lena is a wife, daughter, sister, and friend with a unique ability to connect with others. Lena’s innate comedic prowess and infectious laugh draws you in, and her compassion for mankind will cause you to appreciate her heart.
Founded in 1986, the mission of the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir, Inc. is to inspire joy and unity among all people through Black gospel and spiritual music traditions. Born out of a gospel music workshop led by the exuberant Terrance Kelly at Living Jazz’s Jazz Camp West, it became an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in 1991. OIGC currently weaves together more than 300 singers across multiple choirs from a wide range of faiths, races, and cultures whose performances of historic forms of African American music bring a message of inclusion and belonging to diverse audiences. The mission of OIGC is to inspire joy and unity among all people through Black gospel and spiritual music traditions.
