Sunday Gospel Service is returning for its third year at Pilgrimage Festival, with the annual event set to again offer attendees an opportunity to worship on the grounds of The Park at Harlinsdale Farm in Franklin, TN. Pilgrimage Festival first launched its Sunday Gospel Service in 2019, returning the event in 2021. Performers during this year’s African American Historical Society Southern Gospel Service include Charlene Harrison, DeWitt Johnson, Quintavious Johnson and Michael Rix.
