METROPOLIS, IL (KFVS) -

The 20th annual American Cancer Society Gospel Benefit is coming to Metropolis on August 2.

The event will start at 7 p.m. at First United Methodist Church, located on the corner of Fifth and Ferry streets in Metropolis. 

Hosting and performing during the evening will be Kevin Williams, guitarist, and band director  for the Gaither Homecoming Tour.

Also performing from the Gaither Tour will be the duet of Reggie and Ladye Love Smith. 

They can be seen at the Grand Ole Opry singing backup and they have also  performed with Dolly Parton, Ricky Skaggs, George Jones and Sandi Patty.

Artist Charlotte Ritchie from the Gaithers will be making her second appearance this year. 

An up-and-coming family group, Southern Raised, from the Branson, Mo. area, will complete the entertainment.
