‘House on Fire’ MLK concert in Portsmouth NH goes virtual for 2021

Reverend Jeff will perform at this year's annual Set the House on Fire Gospel Concert; Celebrating The Life and Legacy of Rev Martin Luther King Jr., which will air virtually on Monday, Jan. 18.

PORTSMOUTH — Persistence and connections saved the much-loved “Set the House on Fire Gospel Concert: Celebrating The Life and Legacy of Rev Martin Luther King Jr.”

Per tradition, on Monday, Jan. 18, the official state Martin Luther King Day, Jukwaa Mazoa will produce its 21st event, delivered differently, but perhaps with greater passion, thoughtfulness and intent than all its previous years.  

“There’s so much negativity right now – dealing with COVID, people out of work, not knowing if you have a job … worried about rent, and the whole realm of things happening  to the country,” Jukwaa Mazoa producer and “House” Director Sandi Clark Kaddy said. “Absolutely, it’s more important to hold it now given the climate in the U.S. today.” 

Like all else, its presentation was in question, Clark Kaddy says. But the idea of cancelling, while seriously floated, was a last resort.
