An online petition drive for a new home for the International Gospel Music Hall of Fame and Museum has been started. The goal of the board members of IGMHF is to receive 10,000 names by August 31, 2004 To sign the online petition log on to imghf.com
Currently there are wonderful treasures housed at The International Gospel Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Detroit, Michigan - boxes of rare sheet music, choir robes, priceless recordings, photos and other fascinating memorabilia. But only a fraction of these items, donated by gospel artists and enthusiasts over the years, can be displayed because there just isn't that much floor space available.
That's why a petition drive to urge Detroit city officials to support plans for a new International Gospel Music Hall of Fame and Museum was created. The proposed 65,000-square-foot facility will showcase the history of gospel music from its earliest roots to the gospel stars of today. Plans include interactive exhibits, audio and visual galleries, portraits of Hall of Fame inductees, a performance hall and educational programs.
Your help is needed please show your support by signing our online petition, and in any other way you can, so that the sights and sounds of the glorious achievements of gospel music will be accessible to all.
You can also buy a commemorative brick to be placed on the new museum grounds
Make a pledge to support our Capital Campaign and donate your gospel music memorabilia.
