A concert by the Ingramettes, one of Virginia's premier gospel ensembles. The family Gospel group was founded in the 1960s in Richmond, Virginia by the late Maggie Ingram. This is the group's first performance without her. This performance includes singers Rev. Almeta Ingram-Miller (Ingram's daughter), Cheryl Maroney Beaver (Ingram's granddaughter), Carrie Ann Jackson, and background vocalist LeChelle Johnson. The musicians are Calvin "Kool Aid" Curry (bass), Kenneth Heath (keyboards) and Randall Kort (percussionist).

Speaker Biography: For more than five decades, the Ingramettes have been bringing their music and ministry to congregations in the Tidewater and Piedmont areas of Virginia. Their commanding, spirit-filled performances demonstrate the extraordinary depth of talent in American gospel music.
