Voices celebrates 15 years with special guest

Cleveland mayor Tom Roland has proclaimed Sept. 20, 2009, to be Voices of Lee Day.

The mayor made the proclamation at the 15th anniversary celebration during the Sunday morning service at North Cleveland Church of God.

Voices of Lee alumni from past and present joined together to fill the sanctuary with the powerful music that the ensemble has become known for throughout Cleveland, the United States and worldwide.

The celebration also featured as a special surprise guest Southern gospel music legend Bill Gaither. Gaither was made an honorary citizen of Cleveland, Tenn., by the mayor.

Gaither spoke about the importance of harmony in the church and the body of Christ, then led the congregation and the choir in a traditional song.
