No wonder the main arteries leading into downtown Atlanta were clogged like a backed up sink.
Throngs poured into the Georgia World Congress Center for the annual Bronner Bros. International Hair Show. And an even bigger crowd — much bigger — spilled into Centennial Olympic Park right next door for the Praise 102.5 “Praise in the Park” gospel extravaganza.
With the backing of Nissan South Morrow, Praise 102.5/102.9 presented a nonstop, nine-hour show featuring the likes of “Meet the Browns” star Tamela Mann (photo above with her husband and TV co-star David Mann), William Murphy, Wess Morgan, Patrick Dopson, Chanel and Beverly Crawford, Tamela Mann, Ricky Dillard, Tasha Cobbs and others.
AARP, The US Army, Denny’s Carver College, Kraft Foods, Kool-Aid Jammers, Grady Health System, Country Financial, Kaiser Permanente, BMW Metro Step, Peachstate Health Plan, and Belhaven University all came aboard to put on this affair that riveted the estimated 20,000 in attendance.
Check out some of the highlights of Praise in the Park, with the help from none other than the multitude in attendance.
