Gospel group will raise the roof

SOULFUL gospel music is set to raise the roof of Lismore's Star Court Theatre tonight. Well-known Northern Rivers singer Lisa Hunt will go back to her roots when she is joined by the Raise the Roof Community Gospel Choir for what promises to be an uplifting performance.

Ms Hunt said she was looking forward to taking to the stage with the choir.

"Everyone knows that I perform great Motown, soul and dance music, but not many have seen me go back to my roots, which is gospel in the great African-American tradition," she said.

"That is how I first learnt to sing."

Ms Hunt said she was moved by her last performance with the Raise the Roof Community Gospel Choir.

"I got together with the 50-strong community choir for a CSG for- um in Byron and it so moved me that I asked them to come and be a part of my Lismore concert."

A dance floor will be avail- able for those people who would like to dance.

Raise the Roof Community Gospel Choir has three groups that get together to sing every week.

On Monday nights a group gathers at Murwillumbah from 7pm-9pm.

On Tuesday mornings from 11am till 1pm another group sings at Suffolk Park.

If you live in the Brunswick Heads area a third group sings on Wednesday nights from 6.30pm till 8.30pm.

Anyone interested in getting involved can call Jessie Vintila on 0417 277 211.
