The Only Light In Town…

A long intermission. Missing singers during the last half of the program. That’s how the Second Half Quartet accidentally fell together in 2014 at the Truthseekers Homecoming. When the quartet retired in the fall of 2018, it seemed only fitting that they appear one more time at the event of their birthplace. Saturday night at…

Two Quartets

Friday morning, the Truthseekers Homecoming was a wonderful combination of fellowship, music and teaching. The Truthseekers sang classics like “Everybody Ought To Know,” “I’m Satisfied,” “I’ve Got That Old Time Religion” and many others. After the music, Pastor Andy Lee came to the pulpit and spoke on a passage in 2 Timothy and once again,…

The 35th Anniversary Kicks Off In 3, 2, 1!

Most events start with an evening concert, but if you’re in Marion, Illinois the first third full weekend of March for the Truthseekers Homecoming, the weekend starts on Thursday morning. With coffee brewing at 8:00 AM and fresh donuts from a local bakery, the Thursday morning Prayer Breakfast is the gathering place for both the…

Crystal Caribbean Cruise 2019 – In Review!

You may have noticed that during the months of January and February, Gospel music cruises sail out of Florida almost every week. While there is only one full charter where the bars and casinos are closed, the “split ship” options are numerous. This year, we were on board the Crystal Caribbean Cruise with Abraham Productions…

Singing at Sea Cruise – 2019 In Review!

Royal Caribbean’s Brilliance Of The Seas sat anchored at the cruise terminal in Tampa Bay. In just a few hours, the ship would be filled with over 2,000 Gospel music fans for the 45th annual Singing At Sea Cruise; and I couldn’t be happier to leave all the cold temps and snow at home for…

When The Lights Go Out

If it’s January and you just spent two days in a car driving to Florida, you might be going on a cruise. And if you’re going on a Gospel Music Cruise, you will definitely find a concert to attend on the way down! That was the case for my crew on Friday, when we stopped…

Beyond Amazing Tour DVD Taping

Millions of people were probably already in Times Square on New Years Eve when my car wound its way into the parking lot of Beulah Baptist Church. Ringing in the New Year with a Gospel concert has always been a tradition for me, when possible, and I couldn’t of been happier when the winding roads…

The 12 Actors of Christmas

Saturday morning at Smoky Mountain Christmas began with another morning devotional from, Billy Huddleston. At 9:30 AM everyone was in their seats as Billy opened the morning in prayer. Saturday morning he wrapped up the thought from Habakkuk by briefly explaining how Jesus’ birth fulfilled the past promise, present promise and one day, the future…

Elvis and A Dancing Hall of Famer

Friday morning, I was up bright and early for the morning Bible Study at Smoky Mountain Christmas. The devotion was led by Billy Huddleston and started at 9:30 AM. After opening in prayer, Billy asked when was the last time you read or heard a sermon preached from the book of Habakkuk. “That’s right!” said…

Pajamas, Games and Gospel Music

This time of year, Christmas concerts abound. If you prefer a Gospel Music Christmas concert, you might have to seek out one of the popular tours, but if you want a whole weekend of Christmas and Gospel Music, then you would be in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee for a Smoky Mountain Christmas. This event, in its…
