EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Gospel Choir will perform "Dancin' in the Light" at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 13, in Zorn Arena.

The Gospel Choir also is bringing in a professional gospel group to share the night. Sara Renner and the Elements, who specialize in a blend of jazz, soul and gospel styles, will also perform.

Renner and her band have been performing throughout the United States at churches, music festivals and special events since 2001. In February 2004, she and her band started "Minneapolis Live!" at the widely acclaimed Club 3Degrees, where they perform each month.

In the last 12 years as a professional singer, Renner has had the opportunity to collaborate, record or perform with many nationally renowned artists and worship leaders such as Wynonna, Bryan Duncan, Salvador, Paul Baloche and Sara Groves.
