There is more to the One New Mexico Gospel concert than music.
The event was created to bring together people of all faiths, cultures and walks of life.
“We believe that when we’re together that we’re better and that it promotes that cross-cultural understanding, builds shared identity and special capital, and that’s what a choir really is,” said Cathryn McGill, founder and director of New Mexico Black Leadership Council. “It’s a shared identity, and we can bring these people together and to work together in this choir to literally and figuratively create harmony. And that will be a bright light shining in New Mexico for people to use as an example about how we begin to work on solving the issues that we find in our community that are so prevalent.”
