Owego, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The Silver Anniversary Dinner Concert is celebrating its 25th year of music ministry in Broome County.

The concert theme this year was 'A Christmas Celebration of Love.'
All of the songs were sung by Pastor James Ramsey of New Fellowship Church in Endicott.

Ramsey said singing prepares his heart for what he preaches, but not all the songs he sang at the concert were gospel music.

"It will be Christmas songs, love songs, and there will be songs to touch the hearts of the people here tonight," Ramsey said, "help them to forget about what happened this week."

Many friends of Ramsey came to the concert Friday night. They gave out prizes and the event included a buffet dinner. Ramsey has been putting on a concert in Broome County for 25 years.
