WASHINGTON, D.C. -Stellar award-winning gospel singer VaShawn Mitchell will perform and Rev. Dr. Otis Moss, III will deliver the keynote address at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Incorporated (CBCF) Annual Prayer Breakfast, Saturday, Sept. 19, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington D.C. The Miles College Choir will also perform.

The Prayer Breakfast, the penultimate, signature event of the 45th Annual Legislative Conference (ALC), draws roughly three thousand attendees each year. Interactive One will livestream the event for the second year in a row on NewsOne.com.

“The Prayer Breakfast is unique in that it brings our conference guests together in the spirit of worship,” said A. Shuanise Washington, president and chief executive officer of the CBCF. “The Breakfast provides an opportunity for thoughtful reflection and is welcomed respite from the very important work that occurs during the ALC. We are especially thankful for our title sponsor, The Coca-Cola Company, and the Radio One Family for their continued support of this uplifting event.”

VaShawn Mitchell is one of gospel music’s shining stars. His 2010 album, “Triumphant” rose to the top of the charts. “Billboard” magazine declared the album’s single, “Nobody Greater,” the most played gospel song of 2011, and named Mitchell the top Gospel Radio Artist of the same year.

Dr. Otis Moss, III is the senior pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, IL, and an accomplished author, speaker, and activist. He published his first book, “Redemption in a Red Light District,” in 1999. His sermons, articles, and poetry have appeared in various publications.

For the last three decades, the Prayer Breakfast has been the inspirational high note of the ALC. Past guests include Richard Smallwood, Marvin Sapp, Anthony Brown and Group Therapy, and Rev. Dr. Calvin O. Butts, III.

Proceeds from the Prayer Breakfast benefit the CBCF’s many programs and initiatives. To purchase tickets and register for the ALC, visit cbcfinc.org/alc.
