Soulful Sunday kicks off this weekend

Posted: Updated:

Music filled the air downtown this weekend at Veteran's Park as Soulful Sundays kicked off.

The event hosted by the non profit group, Hip Hop Grows up, Inc.,  and happens every first Sunday. Soulful Sundays are geared towards reinforcing the family structure in the community.

By providing a safe and fun atmosphere filled with games, food, and positive music by local talent such as Swisha Man, Gospel group One Way, and Jazz selections by the Southern Art Music Ensemble, this gives families a chance to bond with each other and their neighbors.

The organization wants to try to bring back the traditional saying it takes a village to raise a family and the plan is to strengthen the bonds of the community as a family.

Hip Hop Grows not only hosts community events but provides mentoring, tutoring, and academic support as well and have recorded a CRCT success rate of 100%.
