Sunday Salute to Fred Nelson

Fred Nelson is a Chicago treasure.  He is being saluted at Christ Universal Temple , 119th and Ashland, Sunday , August 4th at 6:00 p.m.

Fred is the musical director  at Christ Universal Temple founded by The Reverend Johnnie Colemon.  He is a child prodigy.  He began playing on his father's lap at

First Church of Deliverance where  his father was the chief organist.  Music is second nature to Fred.  He was at the piano before he could walk.  His God given talent

was recognized early by his mother, Octavia.   She exposed him to a variety of musical genres  from gospel to jazz.  He was the opening act for Ray Charles at the age of six years old.   Can you imagine opening for Mr. Charles at six years old?

His talents have taken him around the world.  He has played for the greats.   Today his credits include serving as the musical director for the legendary Aretha Franklin and the  Stellar Awards, the gospel award winning program.

Sunday, August 4 with  church choirs and friends, Mr. Nelson will be presented in concert at his home church.  Joining the Salute are Ricky Dillard, Rodrick Dixon, Terisa Griffin, The Divine Divas and Carneal Overton.

The musical production will showcase the multiple musical phases  of Fred, the maestro, from his original tunes to jazz classics to the church choir.

Tickets are $50 (VIP Seating with a private reception)  and $25  (General Seating).  Tickets can be purchased online at and at the door.      It will be a wonderful Sunday afternoon.
