Inner Strength takes songs to the South

Boston University’s Inner Strength Gospel Choir is going south to Memphis for its annual spring tour, from February 14 through 17. With an extensive four-day calendar of events in the city known as the birthplace of contemporary gospel music, the choir hopes to spread its ministry through gospel music at community outreach events, seminars, symposiums, concerts, and local churches.

Inner Strength, which will celebrate its 30th anniversary next year, is one of the largest student organizations on campus — and one of the busiest. Members rehearse every Sunday at Marsh Chapel and perform each month at local churches. Although the choir sometimes sings traditional Christian hymns, most of the songs are written by David Coleman (CFA’93), a native of Memphis and Inner Strength’s director for the past nine years.

For more information about the tour, call 617-735-6356.
