April Adventures Await!

What kind of adventures await for us in April?  A lot!  Tomorrow I’ll be going up to the Great Lake of the Ozarks Gospel Sing for their three day event in Osage Beach, Missouri.  We’ll be having a great time with Triumphant Quartet, the Lesters, the Mark Trammell Quartet and many more artists over the…

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…

CD Review: Our Anthem – Tribute Quartet

Tribute Quartet released their current CD, Our Anthem, in the Fall of 2012 and with it, came an anthem for everyone that believes in the Lord Jesus Christ.  The songs are geared to bless, give hope, and most of all, provide a song of praise that the listener can live for and claim as their…

GIVE-A-WAY: California Live…from Legacy Five!

What are the chances that the first Friday of March would also be the first day of the month?  LOL  Well, it is!  That means you don’t have to wait one more day to see what you could win this month on the give-a-way!  Speaking of that prize, we’re doing something a little different this…

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…
