The concert will be Friday, January 25, 2013, at 7pm in the Sanctuary of Epworth United Methodist Church located at 1561 McLendon Ave. NE Atlanta, GA 30307. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Children 14 and under are $12, with a maximum of two (additional children in immediate family are free).

Ms. Reed grew up singing gospel music. “I can still remember my first performance when I was a three-year-old in my aunt’s church. Her name was Helen Francis, for whom I’m named, and I was so small they had to put me on the piano. I used to listen to rehearsals with her gospel choir and I’d sing ‘I Wanna See Jesus’ in front of the congregation.”

Ms. Reed has appeared with many artists, including Miles Davis, Smokey Robinson, Etta James, and Lyle Lovett, and been invited to the White House to sing. Ms. Reed lives in Atlanta and frequently performs at Blind Willie’s in Virginia-Highlands.
