Some of Greenville’s most famous and possibly unsung legends will be officially recognized next month, and locals will have the opportunity to decide the winners.
Voting is underway for the Greenville Heritage Awards, scheduled for 6:30 pm on February 4 at the Greenville Municipal Auditorium.
Terrence Gassaway will host the ceremonies and the program will focus on three of Greenville’s unsung heroes: Betty Munday, Noble Gilstrap and Dr. Demetrus Nixon.
Awards will also be presented to winners in seven categories. Winners will be selected by the public and members of the public are asked to nominate one person in each category. The program will recognize the top three nominees with the most votes from the community.
Voting for nominees is available online through January 15 at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YC8CRGX.
The ceremony will also feature live performances by lead singers E’Delyn Williams, R&B and soul from The Blues Doctor, and gospel hip hop from Mighty Joe.
A surprise guest of the Legacy Awards “Youth Award” is also expected.
Tickets cost $20 each and are available at showtimeatthegma.com.
