MANIFEST Wraps Up 2011 with Voices of Hope

The final MANIFEST showcase of 2011 will be a collaboration with Shane Morrow’s The Creative Underground called Voices of Hope on December 9th at the Camp House (1427 Williams St). This installment of the series promises to offer something unique for the Holiday season.

Shane Morrow is a masterful musician and singer who hails from Connecticut. In addition to being a musical virtuoso, he is also the director of The CreativeUnderground, which is a multicultural collective whose focus is on community arts. Most recently, Mr. Morrow and The CreativeUnderground finished a successful run of the Sing Mahalia Sing gospel musical at The Bessie Smith Hall. Earlier this year, Morrow served as the primary force behind both the Jazz in the Hall and Songbook: Aretha Franklin tribute performances, and co-headlined the MANIFEST: Art & Soul showcase in June.

General admission for MANIFEST: Voices of Hope is $10. As a special treat, those who bring gifts to donate to The Urban League Young Professionals Association will receive $1 off the cover. The purpose of the toy drive is to assist local underprivileged children whose families cannot afford presents for the Holidays. New toys and books would be appreciated for younger children. Gift cards, sporting goods, and beauty supplies are recommended gifts for teens. Doors on the December 9th will open at 8. The show will get underway at 9.
