Opening Doors is a new music and interview series hosted by Alastair Moock and presented in collaboration with our Anti-Racism Team. The series launched on Sunday, March 28 at 8pm, and features top national and largely BIPOC talent playing music and discussing issues related to diversity, equity and inclusion –– within the music industry and beyond.
Guest musicians will be paid a guarantee by the church and, additionally, will split online donations with an advocacy/charity organization of their choice. Shows stream live on Facebook and YouTube.
The performance on Sunday, May 23 at 8pm features Rissi Palmer. Rissi was recently featured in the New York Times as one of five artists who are “Black, female, and carving out their own path in country music.” She has performed at the White House, the Grand Ole Opry, and on Oprah & Friends. Rissi will donate half of the proceeds of her show to the Color Me Country Artist Grant Fund.
