Photo Album from Praisefest Branson! (2013!!!)

The second weekend in March has become home to Praisefest Branson – a three day event hosted by Legacy Five and Greater Vision in Branson, Missouri.  This year the Gospel Sing boasted its second anniversary, bringing in special guests such as Jeff and Sheri Easter, the Mark Trammell Quartet, the Collingsworth Family, Ken Davis and…

Friday Morning Standing Ovations

I’ve often teased that “mornings” and “Gospel Sings” don’t belong in the same sentence, yet alone, in the same day; however, the Praisefest Branson crowd soaked it up!  That audience was at its best in the mornings, and this particular morning, they liked standing ovations.  (I’d challenge you to count just how many they gave…

Photo Album: Truthseekers Homecoming 2013!

We spent a delightful two days in Marion, IL at the Truthseekers Homecoming in February!  The Marion Civic Center is one of my favorite auditoriums to see SGM performed in.  The theater is beautiful, the people are wonderful, the atmosphere there is rare at Gospel Sings and when you put all of those things together…you…

Make Some Racket!

  Many phrases would have been appropriate to title this concert review…how sad it is there can only be one!  Though, snatch phrases from the evening like, “Excuse me ladies, if I spit on you,” “George’s Birthday,” or “who did he think I was?” would be perfect, don’t you think?  But I digress… The Truthseekers…

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…

From Tennessee To Missouri…the Music Continues!

  The last session of Greater Vision’s Praisefest was on October 31st, Halloween.  A few days later, we were home anticipating another great Gospel music concert down the road in Mountain Grove, Missouri.  This annual concert we were present at celebrated it’s 9th year, and this was our third year to attend.  Previous years, the…

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…
