Saturday News Roundup #70: Gold City song featured at Royal Wedding
Prince William and Katherine’s wedding yesterday included the almost-forgotten hymn “Guide Me, Oh Thou Great Jehovah.” I will freely admit that I didn’t watch the wedding—but I’ll guarantee you this: No matter how good the rendition was there, there’s no way it matches Gold City’s iconic 2000 20th Anniversary Live rendition. They had an earlier studio version on Within the Rock—inspired by a 1960s Couriers rendition. But the live version with Jay Parrack, Jonathan Wilburn, Mark Trammell, Tim Riley, and a live band, defines that song.
In other news, Freedom signed with the Dominion Agency yesterday. The trio, led by industry veterans John Rulapaugh and Josh Garner, has shown great promise of being one of Southern Gospel’s top groups in the near future.
