The 170 voice, multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, multi-racial Agape International Choir, under the direction of musical visionary Dr. Rickie Byars Beckwith, is the heart of the Music and Arts Ministry of Agape International Spiritual Center, founded by spiritual director Rev. Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith.
The Choir has traveled the world celebrating the Sound of Agape (Greek for ‘unconditional love’), compassion and peace. The concert also includes the Agape House Band, soloists Niki Haris and Tim McAfee Lewis, TAG – The Agape Group, The Movement of Agape Dancers, and other surprise guests. Grammy award winners Bobby Brown, Macy Gray and Tito Jackson are also slated to appear.
Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith, DD, noted visionary, humanitarian and recently featured on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday and previously in the book and film, The Secret, is the spiritual director and founder of Agape, a trans-denominational global spiritual community known for its rich cultural diversity, local and global humanitarian programs, and promotion of the arts.
The “Love Comes Home” reunion concert is a call for healing and recovery for the greater Los Angeles area besieged and bewildered by a contentious and divisive presidential campaign and an unanticipated outcome.
Now that the election has been decided, there is tremendous need for all people to come together in unity and mutual regard. At a time when people are feeling frightened, threatened and anxious about the future, Agape’s multi-cultural, multi-ethnic and multi-racial congregants and community members send an invitation to come home to a welcoming space of inspiring entertainment and the universal language of music, rhythm and joy.
Rev. Greta Sesheta
