JOI RHONE PRESENTS: BISHOP YVETTE FLUNDER
Doors: 5:30 PM Show: 6:00 PM
Bishop Yvette Flunder is a world-renowned gospel music artist who traveled, performed, and recorded with Walter Hawkins and the Family, the Love Center Choir and is the voice known for “Thank You Lord” and “Special Gift”. Her other gospel music recordings include “There’s Power“, with the City of Refuge Praise Ensemble, “We Won’t Be Silent Anymore” with The Fellowship Mass Choir, and “How Sweet the Sound”, with the Grammy Award winning Chanticleer.
Bishop Yvette Flunder is also a native San Franciscan and 3rd generation preacher with roots in the Church of God in Christ. Bishop Flunder has successfully united the message of the gospel with social justice ministry and action for over 30 years. This call to blend proclamation, worship, service, and advocacy on behalf of the most marginalized in church and society gave birth to City of Refuge UCC, which Bishop Flunder founded in 1991 and continues to be a growing and thriving congregation in East Oakland.
In 2022, Bishop Flunder presented a SOLD OUT show at Yoshi’s on Palm Sunday. This year, Bishop returns on Resurrection Sunday, again with a live band, with hymns and music that she loves from all genres! This is not an evening to be missed on Resurrection Sunday!
