Jubilee Gospel Music Festival

By Visit Tallahassee

March 22 & 23 at the Adderley Amphitheater

In partnership with the FWPC Community Development Corporation, we invite you to experience two-days of unparalleled music at the Jubilee Music Festival at the Adderley Amphitheater in Cascades Park on March 22-23, 2024. This two-day event features an extraordinary lineup of gospel music luminaries, including The Clark Sisters, Jekalyn Carr, Todd Dulaney, Pastor Mike Jr., and Yolanda Adams. Local church choirs and praise and worship teams will also be invited along to participate during the weekend.

Sponsored in part by:

Comprising Jacky Clark Chisholm, Elbernita “Twinkie” Clark, Dorinda Clark Cole, and Karen Clark Sheard, The Clark Sisters are trailblazers in contemporary Gospel music, with a legacy spanning over five decades. Their chart-topping albums, including the recent sensation “The Return,” showcase their enduring influence on the genre. Joining them is Jekalyn Carr, a powerhouse in her own right, boasting multiple Stellar Awards, Dove wins, and Grammy nominations. Carr’s captivating voice and inspiring ministry have made her a force to be reckoned with in gospel music.

Adding his distinctive sound to the festival is Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Todd Dulaney, whose journey from the baseball field to gospel stardom is nothing short of inspiring. With hits like “The Anthem” and “You’re Doing It All Again,” Dulaney’s music carries a message that transcends boundaries. Pastor Mike, Jr., an 11-time BET Stellar Award winner, brings his soulful voice and dynamic stage presence to the festival, embodying a unique blend of ministry and musical artistry. As both a pastor and a rising artist, Pastor Mike, Jr. is making waves with his messages of resilience and triumph.

Rounding out this stellar lineup is the incomparable Yolanda Adams. A Grammy-winning powerhouse, Adams has not only triumphed in the world of gospel music but has also made her mark as an author, designer, record company executive, mother, and actor. Her soulful vocals and inspirational messages make her a living legend in contemporary gospel.

Formed in 1976, The Brown Singers started as a group of friends who happened to be at church when the Pastor asked “What did y’all sing at the quartet convention?” With only a few present, they sang and tore the church up. He then said, “You should call yourselves The Brown Singers.” The Founder of the group, Willie Mae “Brown” Richmond, took the girls and they began to sing all over town. In the early 90s, the group began to go through some changes and two of the original members decided to leave to focus on their families. Not knowing how or even if they would continue on, group member Vanessa Knowles’ 9 year old daughter, Lisa, stepped in and began to sing in the background. At the age of 12, she became the group’s lead singer. In 2015, Lisa Knowles & The Brown Singers released “The Evolution Continues” which debuted #6 on the Billboard Gospel Charts and scored two Stellar Awards for “Traditional Group/Duo of The Year” and “Quartet Of The Year”.
