The massacre at a Charleston, South Carolina, church last month has prompted GRAMMY Award-winning recording artist Tye Tribbett to launch a “Hate Won’t Win” concert to benefit the families of the nine people who were shot to death in that tragic incident.

The concert will feature several big-name Christian artists, including GRAMMY winner Israel Houghton, “Break Every Chain” singer Tasha Cobbs, R&B star Akon protégé Mali Music and Columbia, South Carolina, native Travis Greene.

The concert will take place Thursday, July 23, at The Medallion Conference Center in Columbia and will cap the first day of Tribbett’s second annual The Chosen Music Mentorship conference for church worship leaders.

“Gospel is the good news,” Tribbett said of his use of music as a healing tool to create racial harmony in the Carolinas. “By spreading the music, we induce hope, and we train new worship leaders so they are equipped with the same intent to go fearlessly where some have lost hope and to boldly declare through this gospel that there is yet hope.”
