The Seasons Performance Hall is proud to host for a second year and invite all in our community to join us for a celebration of the Juneteenth Holiday that celebrates the June 19, 1865 date of the elimination of the last vestiges of slavery in the U.S. The celebration will begin with an informal reception with complimentary small bites, non-alcoholic beverages, and alcoholic beverages available for purchase. The evening will then showcase Josephine Howell and her band presenting a gospel chorus, blues set with backup singers and band, and finally Jazz.

A journey through the traditions of music that changed music in America and the world through the infusion of African American musical and rhythmic styles. Dinner offerings through the Bistro will feature some special dishes from traditional family-style dinners in the African American Community. Dinner will be available to purchase after the performance.

Thank you to OIC of Washington, Shaw & Sons Funeral Home, Eric Silvers & Esther Huey for all of your support and planning.

Josephine Howell was born in Chicago, IL. She has always been fascinated with music and the arts, captivating family and friends at an early age with her amazing gifts.

“Josie” possesses a God-given endowment for the arts. She first explored her interest and abilities for singing in the children’s choir at her childhood church, The True Right M. B. Church. It was the beginning of the foundation that would sustain her through a life filled with the type of experiences that inspire every song, every word, and every moment she is on stage.

Josie is always exploring new avenues of expression. Her range of talent extends from singing, dancing, and acting to the very production and direction of the arts. The experiences of her performances reflect the spirituality, love, struggles, and victories of one who tells a story of triumph where there was no hope.

The passion, inspiration, and melodious sound you savor when you have the privilege of experiencing one of her breathtaking performances is birthed from a life of challenging struggles and immense victories. Her voice alone, tells a story in every song. When she is singing about love, you can feel the passion in the eyes of one newly in love. When she is singing about having fun, it makes you want to run, like a child, to the playground of your youth. And when she is singing about the One who has given her new life, you feel the healing of her wounded heart and you know that Jesus lives!

Because Josephine recognizes the importance of each hand, helping another, she participates often in many local community events, performing, and entertaining, but also sometimes speaking very candidly to those who need to hear from someone who's walked in their shoes. She is active in not only local affairs but has also committed her time and talent to speaking to our government about the plight of the homeless, a place she once knew firsthand. She believes that is important not just to entertain, but to use her gifts, her singing, her speaking, her acting, and her directing to better the community, city, and country in which she lives.

Josie attributes her success to her mother, Alberta Tucker, for instilling in her a spiritual foundation based on a personal relationship with God. But she recognizes God as her ultimate reason for her gifts, her will, and her determination.
