PHOTOS — Gospel Male Chorus delivers for community

The Gospel Male Chorus of Southeast Texas performed during its 24th annual concert Sunday evening at First Sixth Street Baptist Church in Port Arthur.

Approximately 50 men from churches across Port Arthur and Southeast Texas performed gospel songs before a near-capacity crowd.

The concert is a fundraiser for the chorus’ scholarship program, as Wilson Early College and Memorial High School senior Taylor Getwood and Wiley College senior Clonie Ambroise III received $250 scholarships.
