Cast Visits Dallas Church, Jakes Visits Winspear Opera House
Members of the touring cast of the Broadway spectacle Fela! attended a worship service at The Potter’s House during their visit to Dallas. Bishop T.D. Jakes mentioned the show to the congregation, which has been ranked one of the 10 largest in the United States.
Jakes attended the show Tuesday night as a guest of Michelle Williams. Williams, a gospel singer, stars in Fela! and was a member of R&B girl group Destiny’s Child, one of the best-selling female groups of all time.
This wasn’t Jakes’ first visit to the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House, where in June he celebrated his 35th year as a minister. The red-carpet event, co-hosted by Tyler Perry and CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien, featured many celebrity guests, including Oprah Winfrey.
