They were lined up out the door Saturday at Meridian's Temple Theater.
The reason, the Mississippi Mass Choir. For weeks excitement has been building in circles that love gospel music. Saturday the choir performed for a packed house.
The Pinnacle Institute was responsible for bringing the choir to town. Organizers say music brings people together.
"Music can cross any fence and that's one of our goals to use music to bring our community together," said Pinnacle Director Jonas Crenshaw, Jr.
The Pinnacle Institute Conference Choir opened Saturday's show.
