Greater Vision – There Is A River

“There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most high.”   ~ Psalm 46:4 Every living organism in this world, whether it be man or animal, depends on water for its  existence.  We can’t get around it…we need water to live. …

Featured and Favorite Highlights of 2012

It was Saturday, the 22nd of December 2012 when I checked my mail box and pulled out the January 2013 issue of the Singing News Magazine.  Wow…another year really has come to an end, hasn’t it?  Well, it has!  So, as we launch into another year, I want to pause for a moment and review…

“When You Hear The Music…”

  “You gotta’ be up and fresh the whole time!” exclaimed Gerald Wolfe, describing to the audience in the Mansion Theater how they should respond when the Jubilee 3 taping began.  Taking a moment to gently reprimand the crowd, he pointed out that towards the end of “A Christmas Jubilee,” he was starting to lose…

Elvis, a Sax, the Snow Maker and a Hungry Wig!

The Jubilee tours have brought three of Southern Gospel Music’s most popular groups together for a series of concerts that can’t be topped by anything else in the genre.  Over the last couple of years, Greater Vision, Legacy Five and the Booth Brothers have traveled together, shared the stage and released three unforgettable CD’s.  So,…

  …You are probably wondering, “What works?”  Well, my answer is simple, the Gospel – no matter what format it’s in, it works.  That idea formed the theme for the Greater Vision concert I attended the night before Veterans Day in Steeleville, Missouri at the Meramec Theater.  As Gerald reminded us many, many times, “You…

Family of Fans

  With images of the snow-frosted Smoky Mountain National Park in my mind and the frigid clean air in my lungs, we meandered off the mountain and down to New Hope Church for the last session of Praisefest.  Could I believe that in a few short hours the Gospel Sing that started only a few…

Gerald’s Favorite “Driving Group”

  Wednesday morning was bitter cold – just one step outside my hotel room proved that!  Then again, when my gaze fell upon the mountains and I saw nothing but white peeks, the temperature no longer mattered – it had snowed in the mountains!  Now if seeing that didn’t cheer you up, nothing would!  It…

Laughter, Singing and Surprises

Crisp, cold air blew in my face as I emerged from the elevator into the cool morning breeze.  It was Tuesday morning, and we were up early and ready for the second session of the Great Smokies Praisefest!  While driving down the street toward New Hope, I couldn’t help but notice the majestic Smoky Mountains…
