The Progressive Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ is celebrating 75th Annual Holy Convocation this week (July 1-7, 2019). It is being held at the Double Tree Hotel on Bush River Road in Columbia. People from Florida, Georgia and North Carolina are coming to the area and even as far as New York.

Madam Alice Blondell McCloud is scheduled to be singing along with other singers. Ms. McCloud is the sister of the late businessman Happy Daddy.

McCloud says “I have a gift of writing my own songs. Some people called me Little Mahalia. She (Mahalia Jackson) is my favored singer. I talked with her before she died. I've cut five records and one CD on my own. I wrote all the songs and I'm singing them with my choir at church.”

Madame Blondell McCloud is scheduled to sing on Thursday, July 4th at the Convocation.
