A belief in getting back to Judeo-Christian roots is among the reasons for the upcoming Crossroads Gospel Festival which will be taking place this weekend.

“I have always believed in the saying that ‘necessity is the mother of invention.’ Looking out at the landscape of our country, I believe America needs to return to its roots and heritage,” said event organizer Robin Clayton.

The Crossroads Gospel Festival 2017 will take place on Hallelujah Hill, located on U.S. Highways 45 and 2, in Corinth, beginning at 5 p.m. on Friday and beginning at 2 p.m. on Saturday.

This is the third year for the free event, which is hosted by North Corinth Baptist Church. Clayton pointed out there will be free hotdogs and soft drinks, restrooms and free dry camping. Attendees are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs and enjoy.

The organizer said the basis of why the Gospel Festival is taking place can be found in found in Biblical passages — Psalm 150 and Ephesians 6. He said the performers coming are “musical missionaries.”

“In my opinion, we need more gospel singing and less rock and roll, unless we’re talking about having our foot on the rock and our name on the roll,” said Clayton. “We have assembled the cream of North Mississippi gospel groups as well as some professional traditional groups.”

There will be prayer before each event. The schedule of performers are as follows:
