One Night Only – The Quartet and The Concert

Last Friday night I did something I have never done before…   I drove 9 nine hours one way for a single night concert!   But in the end, I don’t feel odd admitting that.  As concert promoter/singer Pat Barker stood on stage and asked the crowd how many states were represented, places like Texas,…

Singing in the Sun!

I think it’s pretty safe to say that not every Gospel Sing you attend has a whale painted on the side of the building…but the Myrtle Beach Convention Center does!  If you’re in Myrtle Beach, SC in mid-April, you can walk right in that convention center and enjoy Singing in the Sun.  This five day…
