The joyous voices of Greater Cleveland gospel groups “One Voice” and “The Tralalas” rang from the rafters on Sunday, April 21, at a brunch at Vosh Lakewood to benefit North Coast Health Ministry, the Lakewood-based charitable health center serving the low-income uninsured.
Both groups donated their time and talents at Vosh Lakewood, the newest music destination on Greater Cleveland’s West Side at 1414 Riverside Drive in the former Bonne Bell building.
“The Tralalas” are a local gospel, sixties tribute and jazz group featuring Sandra Bass, Kurana Glaros, Cozzetta Ragland and Ruby Turk. They have performed at many local venues including the Martin Luther King Jr. tribute at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in January. Making a special guest appearance at this event were Art and Joyce Blakey of “The Hesitations.”
“One Voice” has been heralded as a 2012 Gospel Music Elite Award winner. Joining their voices in praise are Debbie Blackman, Sa’Sharry Garcia, Yolanda Garcia, Frances Lawrence and Lynette Speights.
