“To present Isaac and the Hamilton Brothers in concert is an honor for Motlow State as well as the community,” said Brenda Cannon, executive director of community relations at Motlow. “Bringing this family home is a celebration. The performance allows them to serve the community where they grew up and learned the craft that has taken them to new platforms. We invite the community to come and help us celebrate our very own.” •
