Saturday and Sunday did not end with just speakers and vendors! Attendees danced into the night at Saturday’s R&B concert that featured Faith Evans, Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia, Tyrese, Johnny Gill and Mary Mary, and an After Party with Doug E. Fresh at B.B. King’s. On Sunday morning a line formed around the convention center for the praise and worship service led by Bishop Hezekiah Walker. The spirits of thousands were raised by Taffi Dollar as she shared uplifting inspiration to a standing room only convention hall.
