Praise in the Park 2023, our second annual event in the series, was truly a moment in time. The fun-filled day of fellowship, music, family and friends brought folks from around the state – and artists from around the country – to Houston, Texas on Saturday (March 18th) for a celebration like no other.
The lineup? Impressive, featured artists for the Praise 92.1 event included performances by: Deitrick Haddon, Jonathon McReynolds, James Fortune, Maurette Brown Clark, JJ Hairston, Ernest Pugh, Chester D.T. Baldwin, Melvin Campbell III, J. Pyles, Marcus Jordan and Anthony Hall.
Outside the event, food trucks lined the streets of H-Town, while inside, select vendors, spectators and followers of the faith filled Buffalo Bayou Park. It truly was a family affair for Radio ONE Houston, as talent from Majic 102.1 and 97.9 The Box arrived early to help welcome in the crowd.
But an event of this magnitude would be NOTHING without our esteemed city leaders. Mayor Sylvestor Turner and United States Representative Sheila Jackson Lee both made appearances backstage and onstage to greet the show attendees and say a few words on the importance of events like Praise in the Park: After all, a city is nothing without a connection to its community.
We’d like to thank Your Houston Area Chevy Dealers for sponsoring Praise in the Park 2023 in addition to all the artists who performed, vendors and food trucks on the scene and most of all, The City of Houston for allowing us to once again bring people together for an amazing day of fellowship.
