I had the opportunity of a lifetime recently; getting the chance to celebrate the life and birthday of Congressman John Lewis. The birthday gala was held at Atlanta’s historic Tabernacle located downtown. The evening was a tribute to the life and great legacy of Congressman John Lewis.

The evening included an amazing concert and performances by Alfre Woodward, Indigo Girls, Tichina Arnold, Kim Fields, Regina Belle, Carmen Ejogo, The Annointed Pace Sisters, Terri J. Vaughn, Dule Hill, Demetria McKinney, Gary Jeter, Ryan Cameron, Ed Dwight, Clark King, Roger Bobb, AJ Calloway, the Morehouse Glee Club, and Stephen James who portrayed Congressman Lewis in the Oscar nominated film ‘Selma’.

 

The evening was absolutely amazing!

Check out the photos below.

Portraits of John Lewis was the theme of Congressman John Lewis‘ big 75th Birthday Party held at Atlanta’s Tabernacle. Congressman Lewis was full of energy and delight as he witnessed Atlanta pay tribute to his tremendous legacy. The invitation only birthday celebration collided with the 50th anniversary of the Selma March where thousands of supporters from across the nation came together to celebrate the momentous occasion and pay tribute to John Lewis who’s known as the Keeper of Faith – Protector for Justice – Defender of Freedom.

Congressman John Lewis had the following to say about his big year,

“I am so humbled by the love and support of my friends and especially, my constituents in Georgia’s Fifth Congressional District. I wake up every day honored and blessed to serve them and our nation after 75 years.”

The evening was truly inspiring. The music and performances were awesome. It was truly a pleasure to be in the presence of greatness.
