Evangelist and Prophetess Bonita Massenberg will host a Gospel Celebration Concert on Friday, Aug. 29, at 7 p.m. at Spirit Of The Lord Equipping Center, 1120 W. Wingfield St. in Altus.
Every singer dreams about recording a demo CD and Evangelist and Prophetess Bonita Massenberg is no different.
The daughter of Minister James Sneed and the late Apostle Bernice Sneed, Bonita has been singing since she was five years old.
“I remember telling my Mom that I wanted to sing ‘just like you.’ To which she replied, ‘Yes baby, it’s in you.’” Altus residence may remember Bonita’s mother, Apostle Bernice Sneed, as one of the West Sisters.
“I have always been blessed to have such a blessed and highly favored family who were so musically inclined,” said Bonita. “My Mother and my aunts traveled all over singing and preaching the gospel.”
Bonita, or Sister Bo to her friends, began singing with The Singing Puppies as part of the Washington Puppies choir. From there she began singing in the youth choir at New Hope Baptist Church.
Her training continued at Northeast Junior High under the direction of Miss Nancy Lilliard, who is now Mrs. Nancy Cox, and later in varsity choir with Mr. Kenneth Cox. She was also a contestant on “Sunday’s Best,” which is similar to “The Voice,” where she advanced to the second round in 2010.
Bonita has continued singing in various churches in Oklahoma and Texas and is currently the praise and worship leader at Spirit Of The Lord Equipping Center where she will be hosting her upcoming concert.
Bonita is asking for prayers as she takes a step of faith to raise money to make a demo CD. If you would like more information on the concert or if you would like to make a donation towards this ministry please contact her at 1-682-203-3607 or Sister Peggy Sue Clay at 580-477-0625.
