Many people flocked to the Covenant Church in Albemarle County Saturday afternoon to hear gospel music from around the county.
Twelve different acts performed music from spiritual to contemporary gospel and invited people to learn a little more about the word of God.
The program was called Gospel Express and helped benefit the Hope Center and the Celebrating Recovery program in Charlottesville.
"These are people that need assistance to try to get their life back in perspective and we need that because there are a lot of people out there that need love and we want to give that to them,” says Randy Jones, coordinator of the event. “If we can't give them anything else, we can give them love."
The event was free, but they are raising money for those programs through sponsors around the Charlottesville community.
