About Praise Celebration

UNITY’S artistic focus is to make mainstream soulful art forms an educational focus in the arts community, schools and higher educational institutions, locally and around the world.   The term “soulful” means merely: full of emotion or expressing deep feeling or emotion.  The soulful art forms connect with the listener and touch their heart.  Art forms such as singing, dance, drama, creative writing, public speaking and instrumental music can all be performed with expressive gestures and deep feeling or emotion; therefore, we call them soulful art forms. The word “soulful” can be described in three words: experience, emotion and expressive.

Our Praise Celebration concert series, which began in 2011, introduces sacred soulful music; gospel, praise & worship, Christian contemporary, hymns, spirituals and inspiration genres to the community arts stage.  It’s a concert series where you can come and experience high energy, high praise and passionate music that inspires and encourages you emotionally and spiritually.

This exciting concert series has been well received by the community and extremely successful in the past years.  UNITY is the only community performing arts organization that gives mainstream soulful sacred music an educational platform where students learn about the artists and composers in the sacred music industry and perform the music in a professional setting.  


As a result of this unique opportunity, we want to extend our reach to church worship leaders and increase the overall impact this can have on our community and our youth.   Each Praise Celebration concert features guest church worship leaders, both locally and from other cities, which then perform with The Voices of Unity Youth Choir and our featured young artists, under the direction of Mr. Marshall White.   

Don’t miss Praise Celebration 2018, entitled “GRATEFUL” on Sunday, January 7, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. at the Rhinehart Music Center located on the IPFW campus!   IT WILL BE THE MOST EXHILARATING AND UPLIFTING EVENING OF GRATITUDE FOR A NEW YEAR!!

About the Voices of Unity

The World Champion Voices of Unity Youth Choir (VOUYC) is Unity Performing Arts Foundation’s acclaimed Youth Choral Program, under the direction of Marshall White. It is our premier soulful choral group comprised of youth ages 7 to 20 from various backgrounds in the Fort Wayne community and beyond. The program’s goal is to equip, educate, and empower youth to excel in the world before them. The students are exposed to an educational environment where they learn, study and perform mainstream soulful music styles such as; jazz, spirituals, gospel, rhythm and blues, hip-hop, pop, and country.



What are you waiting for?


Out of everything I have learned in UNITY, and through Marshall White, the number one thing I am asked is what have you been taught that stuck with you the most? “Be a light, not a star.” I try to live by this, and I believe it describes me and my life through UNITY. You should never do things for attention or glory. Stars look to be shined on and take the spotlight, but lights shine not for the attention but rather to lead the way. I truly hope my testimony leads someone to either consider investing themselves or their resources into the future leaders of tomorrow.
