Sixteen year-old Tahmique Cameron of Durham, NC, received a standing ovation for his rendition of the Dorsey hymn "When The Gates Swing Open" during the 80th Annual Session of the National Convention of Gospel Choirs and Choruses, held August 3-10, in Houston, TX. After returning to the platform for a reprise for the Soloist Bureau, he was lauded for his appreciation of traditional gospel and love of quartet music.
Rev. Dorsey--the Father of Gospel Music as well as the convention's organizer and longtime president--undoubtedly would beam that his rich legacy is being carried on by passionate young people like Tahmique.
