Louis Gossett, Jr. Visits Holy Grail

ROME (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Oscar-winning actor Louis Gossett, Jr. will be spending Easter (Apr. 12) at the holiest place on Earth.

Gossett is in Rome, Italy, today (Apr. 10) through April 14 to perform The Birth Of Christ cantata on Easter Sunday before Pope Benedict XVI at the Vatican.

Gossett is “in awe” over spending Easter at the holy grail and can’t wait to be so close to God.

He laughs, “If I don’t get blessed there, then it’ll never happen!”

Since this is one of the only times the Vatican has had a non- classical performance take place inside its walls, Gossett will be on his best behavior and plans to “keep it real” in front of the Pope.

He’s been practicing his contemporary cantata script for days and hopes he gets all the words right during his once-in-a- lifetime performance.

Gossett will be on the lookout for a special souvenir to bring home from the Vatican, though he’s not sure what yet.

He adds, “It’ll just fall into my lap.”
