Steele to bring soul-filled concert to Unity Center


Be prepared to clap your hands, stomp your feet and shout out loud at the third annual Soul-Filled Christmas Concert, to be held Dec. 8 at The Unity Center in West Linn. 

In previous years this popular holiday event has sold out, so two shows are planned this year. Audiences can enjoy the music at 4 and at 6:30 p.m.

Directed by Portland’s soul and blues artist LaRhonda Steele, the concert will include performances by Grammy Award winner Janice Scroggins, the 40-member Portland Interfaith Gospel Choir and the vocals of MaryEtta Callier-Wells, Arietta Ward, Ron Shoals and Steele in a gospel ensemble called “The Group.”

There will also be performances by blues legend Norman “The Boogie Cat” Sylvester, the voices of Lauren and Sarah Steele, Renato Caranto on sax, Richard Lawrence on drums and Carl Falls on bass. 

Tickets can be purchased for $15 in advance through worldhealing.org or at Brown Paper Tickets or will sell for $20 at the door if available.

The Unity Center is located at 20255 Willamette Drive in West Linn. For more information about the center and events there, go to worldhealing.org.
