Details: There is a huge Haitian Christian community in Philadelphia, as evidenced by the number of Haitian churches in Philadelphia-approximately 68. Gospel music plays a vital role in the lives of Philadelphia Haitians because of their religious beliefs. This is why the first Annual Haitian Music Awards are so important and monumental. This is an opportunity to recognize all the gospel artists who have aided thousands of Haitians, serve the lord through gospel music. This event will be spectacular because hundreds of artistaE™s will be coming from Florida, Canada and Haiti to receive awards. A few of the invited guest include Assade Francoeur, JosueaE™ Chery, Henry Dorval, and Mary Mirca Tangor .

The Haitian Community Help Center is a non-profit organization created 2-1/2 years ago to serve the needs of the growing Philadelphia Haitian population. There are an estimated 60,000 Haitians in Philadelphia; the Haitian Community Help Center is a beacon of light for these Haitians. The center provides job placement services, ESL Classes, basic computer classes and more. In addition, the center has begun serving non-Haitians, as word of the services it provides spread throughout the Germantown community.

I believe this is an unprecedented event by the Haitian community in this city. Time has finally come for our generation, to stand up and be counted as an ethnic force and an asset in the city of Philadelphia.

On behalf of the Haitian Community, I want to congratulate HCHC and fellow singer Emmanuel Polection, for their undying effort in bringing talented haitians artists to the forefront and in being our voice in this city.

It is really a great to let others know about our Haitian gospel artist, I command you guys on that. However, I was wondering if Evangel Band is a nominee at the award or will they be performing there.

They just received the HaiMusic award for best gospel Artist.
