In honor of Martin Luther King, New Thought Center for Spiritual Living in Lake Oswego will present “Martin and Music,” a musical celebration honoring the life and words of the civil rights leader, at 7 p.m. Jan. 16. Introducing the evening’s events will be the Portland Interfaith Gospel Choir with LaRhonda Steele, director.

“This program and celebration is a gift New Thought Center is giving to the City of Lake Oswego,” said Rev. David Alexander, senior minister at NTC. Alexander hopes this event will become a tradition in Lake Oswego and an annual observation of King’s birthday.

“Martin and Music” will feature actor Gerald C. Rivers, who will bring to life King’s words, spirit and authentic voice. Joining him will be Broadway and television actor Charles Holt.

The Portland Interfaith Gospel Choir sings only traditional and contemporary black gospel music. Singers from all faith backgrounds and spiritual traditions sing in the choir.

Reserved tickets for “Martin and Music” are $25; general admission are $15. Both can be purchased online at celebratedrking.brownpapertickets.com.

The event will take place at the New Thought Center, 1040 C Ave., in Lake Oswego.
