Y-O's picks for July 26:
The three-time Grammy award winning gospel artist, Donnie McClurkin, will be in Macon Friday, July 26 for the 39th Pastoral Anniversary Celebration at Pentecostal Temple 928 Anthony Road. This gala is free and starts at 7 p.m.
Back in the day, Donnie McClurkin worked in the shadow of gospel greats like Andre Crouch and The Winans. He' s evolved into so much more than a gospel music recording artist. Donnie McClurkin is an actor and a pastor. Some of his work includes the production of songs for the soundtracks of "Lady Killer's", "The Prince of Egypt" and "The Goofy Movie". Currently, he is host of the BET's gospel reality show "Sunday Best".
So, if you're looking for a spiritual experience, this weekend, check out Donnie McClurkin Friday, July 26 at Pentecostal Temple 928 Anthony Road. A couple of his well-known tunes are "Stand" and "We Fall Down".

Roger's picks for July 26:
Check out T. Hardy Morris on the Georgia Public Broadcasting Main Stage at the 567 Center for Renewal Saturday night as part of Bragg Jam. Morris is best known for his work with Athens based indie rock band Dead Confederate and the indie rock super group Diamond Rugs which features him along side members of Deer Tick, Los Lobos, and The Black Lips. However, he will be releasing his first solo project, an album he's named Audition Tapes. In a world full of big studios and digital recording, Morris decided to go to a small studio and record on actual tape. The result is a more laid back and minimalist sound with well thought out lyrics.
Warner Robins Little Theater will be performing the classic Tennessee Williams play, The Glass Menagerie revolves around 4 characters, Amanda, Laura, and Tom Wingfield, and Tom's friend Jim O'Connor. Tom Wingfield narrates the play telling us about the times he remembers with his mother reminiscing of days gone by as a southern belle and his sister looking to find love. It's a story of how time moves on and the changes that come in life from a very traditional southern perspective. The play is believed to be based on the life of Tennessee Williams. This weekend is your last chance to see this play at Warner Robins Little Theater, with times Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Tickets are $16, $14 for seniors, students and active military. Call 478-929-4579 for more information.
