This partnership shows outstanding things are possible when institutions and artists committed to service join together,” stated Senator Jesse Hamilton of Brooklyn, “It will be my pleasure to join performers, neighbors, and friends of the community in praise and fellowship on October 11th. Thanks to all the partners making this event possible, and a special thanks to Pastor Gilford Monrose of Mt. Zion Church of God for his commitment to making this broad-based, community partnership such a success.”

“The Unity Gospel Fest is a one-of-a-kind experience bringing together hospital staff, patients, religious leaders, and gospel artists in a holistic approach to create a healthy One Brooklyn,” stated Borough President Eric Adams. “I am asking Brooklynites to join me on Sunday, October 11th for a worthwhile evening to celebrate both spiritual and physical wellness."
