Hey everyone! Today, I’m headed to St. Louis with a church group to see Hello Dolly at the Fox. Fun, right? Well, before I go, just wanted to post some things that happened this week in Gospel Music. Enjoy! – Lynn
Monday, Avenue and Riley Harrison Clark announced that Riley will continue to fill in for Avenue during the remainder of 2019. Now, when you go out to hear Avenue in concert, not only will you hear trio music with Riley filling in their third part, but you’ll also hear Riley as a soloist.
The Kingdom Heirs new CD, Everything In Between, went to #1 on the Nielsen Soundscan Billboard Southern Gospel Album Chart. In a press release from Crossroads on Tuesday, Arthur Rice, lead singer of the quartet, said, “We put so much work into this new album hoping that people would love it. It’s encouraging to see that they do. Thanks to all the hard work Sonlite Records puts into our releases, and thanks to the fans for continuing to support us through purchases and streams.”
Ready for Christmas? Crossroads is! This week they released three Christmas projects – The Down East Boys EP “Comfort And Joy,” 11th Hours “The Greatest Gift” and Master’s Voice “The Season To Sing.” They also released the Lore Family’s new recording, “Hidden Blessings.”
Also, on Friday, Chris Allman of Greater Vision made a soul searching post on his blog, Like I Wish I Lived, about the need to stand on the truth of God’s word against sin. The post is called “National Coming Out Day.” You can read it —> Here!
