August News

Ouch!  It’s the 13th already!  As you can most likely gather, I’ve been a bit behind on posting the last couple of weeks.  But I hope it’s not too late to write the August newsletter!  You may have noticed that I missed July’s, but honestly, July was different this year.  For the first time, I…

A Preacher and A Prayer…

At any one of Abraham Productions’ events, like the Gatlinburg Gathering, there’s always something going on!  Once the afternoon showcase ended, we strolled down the street, had a burger at Five Guys (my first experience at that particular establishment. *wink*) and then hiked back to the convention center to see the other free showcase in…

An Afternoon With Gospel Music

  The streets of Gatlinburg were abuzz with life…heavy traffic, crowded streets, yep, it was a holiday weekend.  On the other hand, just inside the convention center fans were eagerly awaiting the afternoon matinee at the Gatlinburg Gathering.  Starting at one o’clock, artists such as Soul’d Out Quartet, the Browns, the Bowlings, Karen Peck and…

4th Of July Gatlinburg Style

Rays of dawn peeked through the cracks of the curtain in our fourth floor hotel room at the Park Vista on the morning of July fourth.  I had thought waking up in the Great Smokey Mountains was going to be a treat…but the added blessing of drawing back the curtains and taking in a view…

Miss Gatlinburg and Father Abraham

  This year Abraham Productions moved one of their events, the Gatlinburg Gathering, to the 4th of July weekend.  With the move, Abraham Productions was able to join in on some added fun in the city of Gatlinburg, Tennessee – and that was the 4th of July Midnight Parade!  Ivan Parker, Karen Peck Gooch and…

Last Day In Memphis

Triumphant Quartet had just finished sound check as I slipped into the Ladies Room before the doors opened for the evening concert.  With a cart of cleaning supplies sitting outside the door, I expected to find a staff member inside making sure the place was clean and fresh…what I didn’t expect was a slightly off…

July Give-A-Way!

  It’s finally here!  I have to admit, this give-a-way took a little longer to put together than planned.  Usually, this post is up the first  Friday of every month…not the second!  But I hope you understand, I spent the 4th of July weekend in Gatlinburg, Tennessee on a little vacation and the hotel I…

FRIDAY NIGHT ALL NIGHT SING

  When a new Gospel Sing locates itself in a place that honors the history and memory of the genre itself, it’s only fitting to add a little something here and there that brings back memories from those golden days and relive the atmosphere of days gone by.  On Friday evening the Memphis Quartet Show…

More From Memphis!

At 4:30 PM each day, the doors opened for the Memphis Quartet Show.  On Thursday night, I stood behind the product table of Brian Free and Assurance as fans began to trickle in and browse around the vendor’s booths.  How much time had passed, I couldn’t be sure, but soon a lady wearing one of…
