NEW IBERIA, La. - A New Iberia woman sharing faith and hope on this Mother's Day through gospel music.

Joyce Sorrell wanted to bring some joy to people and decided to host a gospel concert right outside of her home.

Because of the stay at home order churches are not allowed to hold indoor service so today Sorrell brought the music part of the church to participants.

"When we get into church, the elders love the music, but they are the ones we have to keep the safest," said Sorrell. "So I said April 5, I got together with family, I said I'm going to do a live concert from my porch so the elders can see that we're still singing, we're still doing something"

Watch the concert below through a Facebook live performance.
