Hymn Sing Tour – First Baptist Atlanta

In October, the Gospel Music Hymn Sing went on tour for the very first time and ended just before Thanksgiving with a special DVD taping at First Baptist of Atlanta, the church Dr. Charles Stanley pastor’s in Georgia. I can’t express how neat it is to be able to say that we not only attended…

Hello everyone!  I just returned home from a GREAT week in Louisville, Kentucky at the National Quartet Convention, and now I’m “stocked up” and ready for the September give-a-way!  This give-a-way will be different than any other we’ve done so far this year.  I’m so excited!  One lucky winner will not receive just two, but…

Battle Songs – Week 4

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…

The Beginning…

  March may be known as “March Madness” in the sports circle, but in Missouri, Southern Gospel Fans look forward to March as the month that Greater Vision and Legacy Five host Praisefest Branson in Branson, Missouri.  This year, GV and L5 invited artists such as the Mark Trammell Quartet, Jeff and Sheri Easter, the…
