Artist of the day: Corey Edwards
Corey Edwards had just two weeks to prepare for one of the biggest performances of his career.
In early September, the director of music and worship at Bible-Based Fellowship Church in Carrollwood fielded a call from promoters of the King's Men national concert tour.
Would Edwards' choir open for an unprecedented quartet of gospel superstars at its stop at the University of South Florida Sun Dome?
Of course, Edwards said yes.
Come Tuesday, a select group of choir members will precede gospel greats Kirk Franklin, Marvin Sapp, Donnie McClurkin and Israel Houghton in a much-hyped concert that some say could lay the groundwork for expanding the genre's reach.
"I really believe it's just another opportunity for the good news of Jesus Christ to be spread on a global scale," he said.
The King's Men Tour is at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the USF Sun Dome. Tickets are $35-$65. Click here.
