Saturday News Roundup #69
In the News
- Tim Duncan is making his first post-Ernie Haase and Signature Sound appearance. [EDIT, 3/16/13: Broken link removed.] Members of the Oak Ridge Boys and their band are appearing in a PBS special commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Civil War; they will be singing “Dixie” and “Battle Hymn of the Republic.” The Oak Ridge Boys’ bass singer was unable to appear, so Tim Duncan will be singing bass.
- This week, Homeland announced that the Anchormen had signed with their label. The Anchormen’s current lineup is Karl Rice (tenor), Dale Forbes (lead), Terry Carter (baritone), and Paul Harkey (bass). They are currently booked by the Adoration Agency.
- A Japanese youth pastor, Kenneth Maiki Aiolupotea, recently recorded a version of Stuart Hamblen’s “Until Then”; it has garnered quite a bit of attention on GodTube as the “Tsunami Prayer Song.” (EDIT 8/6/11: Broken link removed).
Video of the Week
Revelation, the Southern Gospel trio from Northern Ireland who signed with Crossroads last year, recently performed in front of an audience of 8,000 at a revival. Though the video quality isn’t great, this does give a good taste of what they sound like live (for the 99% of us who can’t afford tickets to Northern Ireland to hear them live!)
