Weekend Watch: Sweet Honey in the Rock performs children's show in DC

Filed Under:

I can't think of a better way to celebrate and model for our children the values of Dr. King on this MLK holiday weekend than taking the little ones to Sweet Honey in the Rock's Annual Children's Show in the District.

It's Saturday, the 13th, with shows at 3 and 6 p.m., at the Peoples' Congregational Church in DC (4707 13th St. NW). Sponsored by the Washington Performing Arts Society.

Here's a description:
Dance in the aisles, and sing along with the women of Sweet Honey in the Rock during their annual children's concert. The beloved ensemble inspires youngsters and the young at heart with songs of hope, encouragement, and togetherness.

Cost is $12 per person. For more info or to purchase tix, call 202.785.9727 or click here.

We love, love, love their music and their message. This is a great chance to see them perform live, in a child-friendly setting.

Also: On Monday evening at 6 p.m., The Kennedy Center is doing an all-ages musical tribute to Dr. King, "Let Freedom Ring." It features Brian McKnight and the Let Freedom Ring Choir. Ticket purchases are required, and this is a very popular event that fills up quickly. See the website for details.
