HALLANDALE BEACH — Foster Park Community Center is welcoming residents and their loved ones to the city’s Black History Month musical tribute with live performances from Sons of Mystro, Adore, Giel, Wanda “Star” Williams and the Starlettes and La Vie.
The show, set for Friday, Feb. 28 from 6-9 p.m., at the community center, 609 NW Sixth Ave., Hallandale Beach, also will feature local food vendors. The event coincides with the city’s free monthly gathering called 4th Fridays on Foster, held on the fourth Friday of each month.
Each artist performing brings something different to the table, so the people of the community get to enjoy a variety of music. Sons of Mystro are classically trained violinists with a hip hop lean; they performed at the 2013 Jazz in the Gardens. Adore is a young urban vocalist who performs interpretational soulful sounds of music, while Giel is a soulful artist with a Christian message; and La Vie is a gospel singer and songwriter.
“I think any celebration of black history and the great accomplishments we as a people have incurred over the years is an amazing time and opportunity to see what we’ve done and what we continue to do, as well as what we hope for our future,” said Giel.
The gospel musician expects the event to showcase the talent and ideas of the performers.
Known as a 2013 Most Livable City, Hallandale is using this event to bring the community together, at the same time give the residents something fun to do, said Peter Doben, public relations officer for the city.
