THE PASSION - "The Passion," written by Peter Barsocchini, tells the 2000-year-old story of the last hours of Jesus Christ's life on earth through passages from the Bible and a variety of contemporary popular music, sung by the cast, and arranged specifically for this event by executive producer and hit music producer Adam Anders. Set in modern day, the event will follow the dramatic and inspirational story of Jesus of Nazareth as he presides over the Last Supper, and then is betrayed by Judas, put on trial by Pontius Pilate, convicted, crucified and resurrected. The event will unfold live at some of New Orleans' most iconic locations while featuring a procession of a thousand people carrying a 20-foot, illuminated cross from outside the Mercedes-Benz Superdome to the live stage at Woldenberg Park on the banks of the Mississippi River.  And it all airs live on WBRC FOX6 on Sunday evening beginning at 7 p.m. "The Passion" stars Jencarlos Canela as Jesus Christ, Chris Daughtry as Judas, Prince Royce as the disciple Peter, Seal as Pontius Pilate and Trisha Yearwood as Mary, the mother of Jesus. Tyler Perry will serve as host and narrator, and Grammy Award-winning singer Yolanda Adams will perform a special opening number.

GO BUILD ALABAMA - Power Up: It's a Mother-Daughter Thing! If you have ever stopped to think about the construction industry, you would realize it is quite unique. The construction industry affects everyone's lives and creates buildings that increase in value over time. Construction is an industry where brick and mortar meet cutting edge technology and employment opportunities are plentiful. Although the industry offers numerous careers, there continues to be a critical skills shortage. Fewer people have entered the industry over time because choosing construction-related careers have not been popular. As a result, the recruitment of women into the construction workforce has long been identified as a potential solution to overcome the labor shortage. The mission of "Power Up: It's a Mother-Daughter Thing" is to empower young women and their mothers to become engaged, educated and explore career opportunities in the construction industry. The primary goal is to educate girls and their mothers on pathways into the construction industry, engage girls and their mothers through one-on-one dialogue with women and employers in the construction industry and explore the construction industry with hands-on activities that reflect real-world situations. This collaborative effort recognizes educating young talent, creating partnerships at all levels and removing barriers as factors in developing a diversified and stronger construction industry workforce. The event takes place March 22 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at the AIDT/Alabama Workforce Training Center located at 3500 6th Avenue South, Birmingham, Alabama 35222. For more information, call (205) 719-3239.
