DVD Review: He’s Alive – Talley’s

After deciding which DVD I wanted to review next, I sat down on the couch, popped in the round disc of the Talley’s and watched this family pour out their hearts on their 2011 video release, He’s Alive.  From an old quartet song to a hymn, radio hits and some of their most popular songs…
