Ann Downing will be in concert on Sunday, March 24, beginning at 10:45 a.m. at Delano Baptist Church. 
Downing has appeared with the Speer Family, the Downings and Gaither Homecoming.

The church is located at 144 Carolina Ave., in Delano.

Raised on a cotton farm in rural Mississippi, Downing grew up dreaming of the day she’d sing gospel music all over the world. Right out of high school she began to realize her dream by securing a position with the legendary Speer Family.  Five years later she met Paul Downing.  

Soon after marriage, Ann and Paul co-founded a group that helped shape Gospel music as it exists today. Downing became the winner of her industry’s highest honor— the Dove Award — for Female Vocalist within a year of co-founding the Downings and went on to be inducted into the Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame for her work with the Speer Family. 

In September 2018, she will be inducted in the Southern Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame as a soloist.
