The fundraising concert is slated for 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 17, with the doors opening promptly at 5:15 p.m.
Nashville, Tenn., Gospel Artist Ivan Parker and his son Guitarist Josh Parker, also of Nashville, Tenn. will headline the event with J.C. Johnson (Bass), Steve Parrish (Baritone), Casey Johnson (Lead) and Jacky Feazell (Tenor) of Iuka Southern gospel group Unity 4 as the headliners.
Other singers will include Booneville High School Student Kadyn Knight of Prentiss County and Dale Fulks, a cook at The Pitstop of Corinth. Each entertainer or group will perform two to three songs.
Advance tickets are $12 per person or $15 per person at the door.
VIP Tickets are $20 per person which entitles the ticket holder to reserved seating.
“It’s a good deal because while many show up an hour and a half early to make sure they can get seating, your seats are already reserved and waiting for you when you get there,” explained Billy Hancock who books the entertainment. “You can arrive as close to five or so minutes before the show if you want to and not have to feel rushed.”
A portion of the concert’s proceeds will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital of Memphis.
Advance tickets can be purchased at the following ticket outlets: Mattress Gallery of Corinth, The Pitstop of Corinth, Kim’s Auto Repair & Towing of Corinth, New Life of Corinth and New Albany and Knight’s Awning, Windows & Doors of Booneville.
In addition to knowing that a portion of their ticket costs will be of benefit to St. Jude, attendees will have an opportunity to donate extra funds to the world-class cancer research hospital.
“We will have donations jar available for those who feel moved to give more,” said Hancock. “We have some talented individuals on the lineup for this concert and hope everyone will come and enjoy it with us.”
