The Galveston Heritage Chorale will perform at historic Reedy Chapel A.M.E. Church at 4 p.m. Sunday at 2015 Broadway on the island. This annual free concert of spirituals will feature special guest soloist Dorceal Duckens.

“My mother, Mrs. Izola Collins, founded the chorale,” current Executive Director June Collins Pulliam said. “She believed that music is for everyone, including spirituals. These sacred songs were born from a raw and painful place. This concert will not just be an education on that genre but also an opportunity to reflect and see that no matter how terrible things in our lives may be, hope is always available to us.”

Events for Faith Focus should be submitted at least two weeks in advance. Rick Cousins can be reached at
