Free Gospel Sundays is back for its 16th season at the Arsht Center. In addition to featuring gospel music’s brightest stars on the Center’s Knight Concert Hall stage, this season will also bring South Florida’s best gospel acts to the streets with free pop-up shows across Miami-Dade County – as well as the first-ever Gospel Fest at the Little Haiti Cultural Center in 2023.
Free first-access passes are usually available about a month before each performance. You can find those tickets here. They go quickly. It is also possible to wait in line on the day of the concert for stand-by tickets, which are often available.
- April 30 Pastor Smokie Norful at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, 1300 Biscayne Blvd., Miami, Knight Concert Hall. Starts at 5 p.m.
For the first time, Free Gospel Sundays is taking place at the Little Haiti Cultural Center with a full day of inspiring music and dance performances across three stages. The Marketplace Stage inside the Little Haiti Cultural Center will feature smaller ensembles and solo artists including Yahsuko, Glory Shalom, Merian Terry, Lady Christina Robinson, Deana Butler Rahming and Natalie Jordan Nixon & Family. The Courtyard Stage will feature larger ensembles, including Sherry Moses & Company, Francine Ealey Murphy & Company and Lisa Page Brooks. The Liturgical Dance Stage will feature a liturgical dance workshop with Dr. Constance McIntyre, artistic director of The McIntyre Institute, a panel discussion on liturgical dance and gospel music and liturgical dance showcases from dance troupes from across Miami-Dade County.
Pastor Norful has a strong passion for saving souls and transforming lives. As an internationally known musician, composer, producer and singer, Norful’s 2002 solo debut, I Need You Now, catapulted him to worldwide recognition. Since then, he has found commercial success with five No. 1 Billboard albums and over 3 million albums sold. He has earned two Grammy Awards, 11 Stellar Awards, five Dove Awards, one Soul Train Music Award, two NAACP Image Award nominations and three BET Award nominations.
