Gospel Pianist from Harlem New York to enlighten Thanksgiving celebrations

As Thanksgiving is celebrated in the US and known for being the celebration for the harvest of the year, MLH has taken the same notion to thank all their patrons for a good year. Yes, 22nd November 2012 – Thanksgiving will be celebrated with a Gospel Pianist from Harlem, New York: Allan Tate will celebrate the day with gospels specifically written for the occasion, serving as a reminder of the significance of thanks. The entertainment for the evening at MLH will be provided by Sri Lanka’s much sought after all boy acapella group VOICE PRINT along with the Olivier Franc Jazz Ensemble and the sultry voice of beautiful Gabrielle Jeanselme, too.
