By Sherry Matney

Wanda Davis put lots of soul and feeling into her music. Sherry's Shots Wanda Davis put lots of soul and feeling into her music. Sherry's Shots The first annual Black Gospel Festival kicked off in Centerville on Saturday evening, May 2 at 6:00, in the Pocket Park next to Wells Fargo. The event was scheduled in the hopes of bringing some of the local talent together who currently attend several small churches in the community.

The crowd was not large but those who came obviously enjoyed the outing. Although not quite fitting the ethnic criteria, but obviously enjoying singing and performing, Don Hervey from Centerville was not shy about showing off his talent.

Wanda Davis from Centerville showed exceptional ability as she sang "Glory Hallelujah" backed up by her friends Pearlie Tryon from Centerville; Olene Davis, Centerville; Tilda Young, Centerville; and Dorothy Johnson, Centerville.

Bobby Walters served as Master of Ceremonies and his wife Carol greeted guests and made them feel especially welcome.
