The Samford Gospel Choir will perform at Samford University on Monday, Nov. 14, at 7 p.m. in Reid Chapel. The public is invited free of charge.

The concert is presented by Samford in Missions and the Black Heritage Association. Dr. Daniel Cason is the director. Roderick Evans, a junior political science major, serves as president of the choir.

The choir is a diverse group of students committed to serving God through different forms of praise and worship. They take their inspiration from Psalms 34:1-8, to let "his praise be continually upon my mouth."

Convocation credit will be offered.
