Lawrence Gordon 

When: Sat., Sept. 8, 1 p.m. 2012
Price: Free
For the majority of his life, Lawrence Gordon was a mechanic who ran a shop in Ravenel. He'd never played a musical instrument and had never sang publicly, not even in a church choir. But all of that changed with the passing of his sister. "I asked the Lord to give me a song that had never been sung," Gordon says. The Good Lord provided and Gordon began singing the tune just as the Almighty had taught him. The only problem: He was stopped in traffic at a red light. "People were looking at me," he says. And it didn't stop with just one song. More soon followed. Today, Gordon, a.k.a. the Old School Gospel Singer, has an eight-song collection of all original gospel tunes, One Lane Highway. "Never in my mind did I think that I would be a gospel singer or any kind of singer," Gordon says. "He found me. I didn't find Him." This Saturday, Gordon will be signing copies of One Lane Highway at What-Cha-Like Gospel CDs and Boutique, 3910 Rivers Ave #B, North Charleston, (843) 744-0332.
