“I would not be here without Selma,” HaVon said. “Selma has given me a foundation that I don’t believe I would have gotten anywhere else. The people that are in Selma understand what it means to come from small beginnings and face the world. She’s a beautiful example on how to handle adversity gracefully and rise above it, and still stand. And as an artist, every time I stand on stage, I just feel like the strength that Selma has taught me always shows up and (will) catapult me forward.”

HaVon’s concert includes Alyssa Crosby, Mark Taylor Tee-Tee Baker and DJ Barack.

The homecoming for HaVon  is sponsored by City of Selma, Reflections Coffee Shoppe, Levitt AMP Selma and Foot Soldiers Park. 

May 21 will forever be known in Selma as Asher HaVon as the City Council signed a resolution on May 28.
