Next month’s “Jammin’ for Jesus” event, set for Sunday, Sept. 4, will be a super-sized show called “Jammin’ Into The Night,” featuring more than three dozen artists and acts, and will span 10 hours, running from 2 p.m. until midnight at the Branson Star Theatre. The event will benefit Christian Action Ministries.
“Jammin’ for Jesus” organizer Phyllis Rotrock, who started the event in 1997, used to host “Jammin’ Into The Night” in the late ‘90s and early 2000’s. Last year, she decided to resurrect “Jammin’ Into The Night” following the cancellation of the “CAM Gospel Sing-Off,” which always served as their biggest fundraiser.
With no other large fundraising events set, “Jammin’ Into The Night” takes on an even greater importance.
“It is so much more important for people to come to ‘Jammin’ into the Night’ because CAM’s largest fundraiser of the year isn’t happening,” she said. “Losing so many of their funds will have an impact on so many people in the community. Maybe they won’t be able to feed as many people in need, which makes what we’re doing that much more important. We really need to help them out.”
The musical line up is filled with performers like Beverly Thomas Lee, Eldon Wright, Final Chapter, the Armstrong Singers, David Mays, Freedom, Heaven’s Heart Trio, Naomi Hilsbery, Rodney Morris, Robert Penny, Larry Moore, Stoney Ferguson, Power Junction and many, many more.
The lineup of musicians will be introduced by several special guest hosts, including Allen Asbury, Barbara Fairchild and Roy Morris, Darrell and Nemra Rhoden, Kevin Rowe, Mike Wellman, Jerry and Sharon Mayes, Ron and Opal Erickson, Sheila Meeker McDonald and Joshua Clark.
Admission is free with a donation of canned meat, vegetables or fruit, which will be given to CAM. A love offering will also be taken.
“Jammin’ Into The Night” is set to begin at 2 p.m. at the Branson Star Theatre.
“It’s a lot of hard work doing this, and God has sent me some great volunteers,” Rotrock said. “I believe this is not only a great ministry for up-and-coming gospel singers, but for the community too.”
