The St. Louis Southside Church at 4108 Reavis Barracks Rd in St. Louis, Missouri is hosting a benefit concert at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, October 1. The concert will feature gospel singer and speaker Stephanie Dawn, along with pianist and arranger Dann Thornton.

Stephanie, who is blind, has been presenting concerts since she was nine years old. Her musical accomplishments include winner of the Young Soloist Award sponsored by Panasonic and Very Special Arts, which resulted in performances at the Kennedy Center, and female category winner in the National New Artist Search.
