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…

Tribute To A Legand

On a Monday morning I woke up in a hotel room in Nashville, Tennessee. The weather was less than kind the night before and I was still trying to convince myself it wasn’t the weekend – you could say that I’m still not use to attending Gospel events on a Monday! LOL However, I was…

Video: Remembering The Music At Praisefest

Enjoy a few clips from the “Remember The Music” concert hosted at Praisefest Branson. These songs pay tribute to the legendary Cathedral Quartet by Southern Gospel Music’s top artists: Legacy Five, Greater Vision and the Mark Trammell Quartet.  

Part Two – Jubilee Concert

Greater Vision was the last group to perform before the intermission and kicked off their set with a well-loved number, He’d Still Been God.  As the song ended Gerald’s eyes lit up and he let out a whoop!  Then he hit the next track – a medley of hymns with the theme “redeemed.”  (Since I…

Tin-Ears, Macho Men, Barley Tones and a Lone Bass Singer…

After a trek to Nebraska on Wednesday I found myself driving to another concert that very Saturday, only this one took me in the opposite direction – Tennessee!  That weekend was the much anticipated “Jubilee 3” tour with Greater Vision, Legacy Five and the Booth Brothers.  I was privileged to be able to attend one…

CD Review: Jubilee 3

I remember when the first Jubilee project came out – it was the “rave” in SGM.  When Jubilee 2 was released, fans were ecstatic that Greater Vision, The Booth Brothers and Legacy Five were continuing the series.  Its mind blowing to think that now, I am sitting down to review Jubilee 3!  The first two…
