B.McCargo

SAN BERNARDINO – B. McCargo, Frankie Taylor & New Movement and Leon Hawley hit the stage with an exciting evening of gospel music, poetry and comedy! The L.H. Experience features an explosion of the best of Inland Empire’s emerging gospel talent, hosted by comedian Sista Merry. This FREE gospel concert will take place Friday, August 8th at The Ship,  2237 Sepulveda Avenue in San Bernardino. Starting at 7 p.m., the concert also features award winning spoken word artist, Andrew Tyree from Los Angeles, and attendees will hear exclusive new music from headliner Leon Hawley’s debut gospel album.

Singer, songwriter, pianist, and composer Leon Hawley, started singing and playing gospel keys at the tender age of 10 years old. Leon describes his own music as fun and youthful, while also signifying deep meaning.

“I never choose a song that I can’t relate to in some way, shape, or form. My music will always reflect who I am.”

A member of Greater Victory Church of God and Christ in San Bernardino, Leon hopes that his music will provide a new means for a relationship with faith, hope and love.

Important for Leon to perform his new music in the company of great friends and good vibes, he recruited a dynamic lineup of artists to create an unforgettable performance experience for his fans. The L.H. Experience welcomes special guests: praise & worship guru B.McCargo, gospel group Frankie Taylor & New Movement, poet Andrew Tyree,  Asa & The Band and host Sista Merry.
