By Kaiyah Smith, Special Correspondent

Spirits will be lifted all over the coliseum in Greensboro for the GHOE Gospel concert.

The event will feature, The Manns World Family Tour featuring Tamela Mann and David Mann, along with the N.C. A&T Gospel Choir.  The concert will take place 6 p.m. Sunday Oct. 8 at the Greensboro Coliseum.

Meet the Mann family

 Tamela Mann is an American gospel singer, and actress, known for her recurring role as Cora in Tyler Perry's plays. Mann began her career as a singer with the gospel group Kirk Franklin and the Family. She was a featured soloist on several tracks while with Franklin's group, including "Don't Take Your Joy Away", "Now Behold the Lamb", and "Lean on Me".

David Mann is an American stage actor, gospel singer, and stand up-comedian who has starred in many Tyler Perry plays. His character Mr. Brown is the father of Medea’s daughter Cora (wife - Tamela Mann).

Tia sings background for Tamela and is Tamela and David’s personal assistant on the road. Tia is a fashionista. She loves to showcase the latest in looks and styles.

Lastly, David Mann Jr. works for the Mann family business, Tillymann Inc., as the office and road manager for David and Tamela. He and his wife, Chantal,  have two children. With entrepreneurial spirits, David’s goal is to be successful very soon in real estate.

The prices for this event varies depending on who is buying the ticket. A&T students  pay $21. 50 with valid College I.D; general admission is $34.50.

It is best to try and get your concert tickets as earlier as you can so that you will have the best seats possible. No one wants to be in the nose bleed section.

To get tickets you would have to either go to the ticket office on campus or the ticket office in Greensboro on 1921 West Gate City Blvd. The concert will be held at the Greensboro Coliseum.

When going to the Gospel concert you want to come in your Sunday’s Best. Go to a mall near you and look for something that will pop out. You never know, if you are singing yourself aloud in the stands you might get called on stage. You want to make sure you are on point at all times. If you want to come in heels come in them, if you want to come in flats then come on. Just know by the end of the show you will be out of them.

Last year for the Gospel concert the line up was great. The concert featured people such as; Fred Hammond, Hezekiah Walker, Karen Clark Sheard, Kierra Sheard, Regina Belle Casey J. and Comedian Earthquake with the N.C. A&T Gospel Choir. Many people listened to Gospel, but never really looked up their background. For instance, Yolanda Adams is a Gospel singer and she went to school and majored in Journalism of Mass Communications.

Kaiyah D. Smith is a junior public relations major at N.C. A&T from Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
