Festival promotes unity and diversity in Springfield

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -

300 residents came together Saturday night promoting unity in the greater Springfield region.

Under the direction of Raymond Wise and his five piece band, the chorus who met today sang spiritual and gospel music.

A moment of silence was held at the beginning of the event for the victims of the Paris attacks.

This goal of the event is to unite people that normally do not interact socially, building understanding among people of different heritages, ages, genders, religions and backgrounds, and to make excellent music while singing about unity and diversity in a fun, safe, and stimulating environment.
