Greater Vision

GIVE-A-WAY: Merry CHRISTmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!  I can’t believe that it is December already, can you?  So the question is, are you ready for Christmas?  I am!  The house is decorated, the trees are up and the weather has that chill to it reminding me winter is in full swing.  There is only one thing missing – Christmas…

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…

The 22nd Annual Great Smokies Praisefest…

Navigating up the steep drive with our SUV, my thoughts were drawn back to spring when we motivated up a similar incline to the Mansion Theater…and the very first “Praisefest Branson.”  Only this time, instead of Branson, Missouri – we were in Sevierville, Tennessee.  Men in bright orange vests waved flashing red sticks, directing us…

NQC Saturday Night – Freedom Hall Favorites

Another year of the National Quartet Convention came to a close on September 15th, 2012.  It was a wonderful week, and even though a good night’s rest was sorely lacking, I was sad that the event had to come to an end.  On the positive side, one of the best line-ups of the week was…

NQC – Chapel With Greater Vision

Every morning at NQC, the Chapel service is held right after the Bible Study.  We were there on Friday morning for the Bible Study, and were looking forward to the Chapel service that followed with Greater Vision! Mark Trammell introduced Greater Vision as Southern Gospel Music’s most awarded trio.  They opened the service with I…

NQC Tuesday Night – We Remember

September 11th has always been connected to the NQC in a special way.  Probably because, if you’ve ever heard Gerald reminisce about it, the National Quartet Convention was going on the Tuesday morning the towers fell.  It was quite different to look down at my program booklet and see 9/11 faded on the background where…

The Original GV, Remember The Music and MTQ Olympics

The second night of the Mark Trammell Homecoming 10th Anniversary Concert began with another video – this one titled, “The MTQ Olympics.”  Some of the categories that group members participated in were: Dancing, Diving and Gymnastics.  When Mark came on stage he pointed out that when he went “diving” into the pool on the Alaskan…
