The Gospel Music Cruise, along with parent company Entertainment Cruise Productions (ECP), presented a $15,000 check to the Church Of God In Christ (COGIC) Charities during last week’s Holy Convocation in St Louis, MO.  ECP Director of Physical Fitness and Lifestyle Coach Jackie Joyner-Kersee was onhand to make the donation, joining COGIC Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr, Bishop Edwin Bass and ECP Executive Director Michael Lazaroff at the Holy Convocation’s “We Care” Banquet on November 7th.  The Gospel Music Cruise also sponsored a highly-anticipated concert by Shirley Caesar during the weeklong event.

“The team behind the Gospel Music Cruise wanted to honor the work that the COGIC Charities does around the world,” said ECP Executive Director Michael Lazaroff.  “When we found out that the 2015 Holy Convocation would be held in our own city of St Louis, we jumped at the chance to be a part of it, making our donation to COGIC Charities in person and bringing Shirley Caesar in for a special concert.”

The COGIC Charities provides international disaster relief assistance including food, shelter, medical supplies and clothing.  The group also awards nearly 100 scholarships each year to fulltime undergraduate and graduate students in the United States. COGIC Charities is part of The Church of God in Christ, Inc, the largest Pentecostal denomination in the United States with over six million members and congregations in 63 countries around the world.

The Gospel Music Cruise will sail from March 6 through 13, 2016 featuring concerts by Kirk Franklin, Yolanda Adams, Fred Hammond, Shirley Caesar, Marvin Sapp, Tye Tribbett, Take 6, hosts Kirk Whalum and Regina Belle, and special guest Donnie McClurkin.  The cruise travels from Ft Lauderdale, Florida to Grand Turk, Puerto Rico (San Juan), Tortola and Half Moon Cay with daily spiritual events, activities and concerts.  Cabin prices begin at $1500 per person and include admission to all major concerts, all gourmet meals and 24 hour room service.
