The Most Attended Festival – Southern Gospel Music

Keeping The Music Alive

Two years ago we attended the Master’s Voice Homecoming in Bristow, Oklahoma.  It was a powerful evening with the Hoppers, Talleys and of course, the host group, Masters Voice.  Though we didn’t make it out last year, this year was a must!  With Karen Peck & New River and Brian Free & Assurance being the…
