St Helen’s Anglican Church in Point Grey will be continuing their tradition of soulful music with a “Gospel Good Friday” service on March 30th at 12noon. This year we welcome the phenomenal soul/gospel singer Dawn Pemberton, as well as bassist Steve Johnston and drummer Mike Ferguson. Dawn will lead the choir and congregation in traditional gospel songs, in particular the “Give Me Jesus” refrain during the stations of the cross.
Dawn Pemberton has deep musical roots that take her powerful voice from gospel and soul to jazz, funk and world music. She has become a staple of the Vancouver music scene and can often be found tearin’ it up as a vocalist, teacher, facilitator, choir director and “go to girl” for live performances and studio sessions. A passionate songwriter and performer Dawn crafts her music with a sense of adventure, quirkiness, and serious groove and shapes it into her own unique and dynamic package.
