Fountain Street Church, in partnership with the Grand Rapids Community Media Center, is hosting a virtual screening for the doo-wop music documentary “Streetlight Harmonies.”
The event, which also features a live Q&A fundraiser, takes place at 6 p.m. May 20.
The film digs into the different types of music, artists, songs, harmonies and the historical movements that inspired them.
“Millions know the music, but few know the artists and their history that laid the foundation for rock ’n’ roll, rhythm and blues, and built a bridge to the civil rights movement,” according to the trailer.
The free Q&A fundraiser will be hosted by FSC’s Virginia Anzengruber. It will feature director Brent Wilson, producer Theresa Page, doo-wop legends Vito Picone, Sammy Strain, Terry Johnson and Wealthy Theatre’s Sarah Nawrocki.
There is a 50% discount to rent or purchase the film between May 11-20 on Amazon Smile with .05% of the proceeds donated to Fountain Street Church or Grand Rapids Community Media Center.
