The event will be held in Brookes Chapel at 8 p.m. The concert features performances by Jac Rip, J-South, Plus One and iDie. Rock the Mic Spring Fest is a student-organized event coordinated by Jeannettia Owens, senior communication major and hosted by Dennis Toney, junior middle grades education major. “SUB 49 is bringing these four talented artists together to minister to the Shorter community through music and praise,” said Owens.
Admission for the concert is free, and prize give-a-ways at the concert will consist of merchandise from the artist. “Rock the Mic Spring Fest is entertainment with a positive message that will be a night of fun and praise, but most importantly it will reach students and faculty with the message of Christ through music,” said Owens.
