It"s back! We Are! Real teens, real stories, is now in production. Scheduled performances are:

Saturdays at 1 p.m. November 7 and 21.

We Are! was inspired by the Gospel for Teens program, which was featured on an Emmy award-winning segment of CBS' 60 Minutes. We Are! contains real-life stories focusing on what the teenagers are living through. We Are! will touch your heart and open your mind to heal through the power of music and singing.

Proceeds from the production help ensure that Gospel for Teens will remain an all free program for teens and their families. The Mama Foundation for the Arts school of gospel mission is to present, preserve, and promote the history and fundamentals of gospel, jazz, and rhythm and blues music for current and future generations, as well as to provide quality training and employment in the performing arts to both youth and adults.
