Johnson On Saturday, July 29, Gos- pel Recording Artist James Bignon captured a standing room only congregation at Allen Chapel AME Church in Athens, Texas with his pow- erful and emotional traditional gospel music. Bignon who was in Athens for a two and a half day gos- pel music workshop concluded With songs of glory and praise to the Lord with the help of his workshop choir members. Bignon stated, "I have felt at home here in the City of Athens. Throughout my travel across the United States and other countries, this is first time that I have seen City officials who were here in person and stay until the end of program." Mayor Randy Daniel (Athens) and Mayor Pat Isaccson.(Malakoff) were on hand to present James Bignon with a Proclamation and a key to the City. Bignon stressed that being a good choir member means to be dedicated, dependable, eager to learn, a leader in worship, a team member, keep God 'first, and be armed for battle. "You should be a blessing and not a nightmare to your choir. Remtmber it's not about you, but it's about GOD," said Bignon.
