The Tampa Bay Gospel, led by Marvin Winans Jr., is among the roster of special acts booked next week for the Republican National Convention.

The lineup features an array of musical talent, from Grammy winners 3 Doors Down to the Oak Ridge Boys to the operatic vocal ensemble, SEVEN.

"We've booked outstanding performers and world-famous acts," said Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus in a press release.  "The convention attendees will be treated to special performances they will remember for a very long time."

Performers will cover the spectrum of music genres, Priebus said, "Everything from pop and rock to country and gospel."

Other performers include Lynyrd Skynyrd, Neal Boyd, Randy Owens, Jack Blades of Night Ranger, Taylor Hicks and BeBe Winans.
