CD Review: For All He’s Done – Greater Vision

In April of 2013, Greater Vision released their new CD For All He’s Done…within it, are some of the most beautiful words you will ever hear. In a proper review, I’d outline Greater Vision’s history and all the ways their successful career in Southern Gospel Music has had fans sitting on the edge of their…

Singing in the Sun – part 2

On Friday night, we had a great line up at Singing in the Sun; the Mark Trammell Quartet, Ivan Parker, the Talley’s, the Pfeifers and the Booth Brothers – it was awesome!  After some congregational singing, Ray Flynn opened the night in prayer and then shared how 73 people came to know the Lord that…

DVD Review: Jubilee 3

Jubilee 3 must have been the most requested DVD by fans in Southern Gospel Music in the year 2012.  For instance, the groups that make up the Jubilee Gang – Legacy Five, Greater Vision and the Booth Brothers – did not plan on filming a companion DVD at the outset of releasing their third CD…

Singing in the Sun!

I think it’s pretty safe to say that not every Gospel Sing you attend has a whale painted on the side of the building…but the Myrtle Beach Convention Center does!  If you’re in Myrtle Beach, SC in mid-April, you can walk right in that convention center and enjoy Singing in the Sun.  This five day…

DVD Review: Live in Louisville – The Mark Trammell Quartet

It was close to ten after seven in the evening on September 11, 2012 when the announcer at the National Quartet Convention introduced the next group to main stage, “Ladies and gentlemen…the Mark Trammell Quartet!”  So it began, the live taping of what now is MTQ’s current DVD, Live in Louisville, displaying eight of the…

Grow! Part 1

As Tuesday comes to a close, I hope you’ll take the time to watch this video and be inspired by a simple message about “nails.”  Yep, those little metal things folks build stuff with!  Funny thing is, as you view this sermon, you’ll learn that humans are more like nails than you think!  LOL  Kent…

May – Make a Difference!

The theme for May can be wrapped up in one word – grow! We all know the saying, “April showers bring May flowers.” Well, rain (water source) helps flowers to grow, and life can sure pour down some thundershowers on our lives. Maybe its doing so now in yours, so why don’t we use that…

GIVE-A-WAY: A Ball Full of Treasures

It’s May already, can you believe it?  Though time sure has passed quickly here in Missouri, what I find hard to believe is that three hours from my home, snow was falling on the ground!  In May!  In fact, Greater Vision drove through some of it last night! Forgive me for starting off on a…

Snapshots #3 – Lake of the Ozarks Gospel Sing

The clock struck six.  Emerging from backstage, I was happy to see a small group huddling over the Singing News table that I had been manning during the week.  It was the last night of the Great Lake of the Ozarks Gospel Sing and closing the weekend were the Lesters and The Mark Trammell Quartet! …
