Claflin University continued Homecoming activities on Sunday, Nov. 15, with a concert featuring big names in gospel music.
Claflin's D.R.E.A.M. Gospel Choir and J Moss were the featured recording artists for the night's activities.
Professional artist J Moss (James Moss) was the headliner of the show and performed a number of his hit songs ranging back to 2005, with a creative mixing of tracks and instrumentation. He entered in style as he glided in on a sky walker.
James Moss took the stage with authority he got the audience engaged as soon as he touched the stage. He performed five of his songs and posed for pictures with students after the event.
"J Moss was very energetic I really enjoyed watching him perform," Claflin student Antwan Greene said.
Claflin presented its newly documented recording artists, D.R.E.A.M., before the headliner came to the stage. The choir performed hit songs from their project "The Live Experience." The crowd seemed to be very enthusiastic as "New Me," the first song on the CD, rang throughout the gymnasium.
Mr. Claflin was present and active in the festivities with a spirited praise dance to open the show. He and his partner sent waves of hand claps and applause through the audience.
The night also featured an up-and-coming gospel group, which opened the musical portion of the concert. Justin Rufus and Peculiar People performed not only a few praise and worship songs but also an original song of their own.
"I really enjoyed the concert this year," said Korey Williams, junior human performance and recreation major.
"The concert was pretty good the sound quality could have been better, but I really did enjoy J Moss," Erica Sanders said.
