Saturday News Roundup #72
In the News
- The Gaither Homecoming concert taping I attended earlier this month (and reviewed here) resulted in two DVDs which will arrive to retail on September 27th (hat tip, DBM). [EDIT, 3/16/13: Broken link removed.]
- Kingsmen bass singer Ray Dean Reese’s wife Carolyn has been slowly but steadily recovering from her pneumonia and bacterial staph infection. She has been moved from the hospital to a rehabilitation center to assist with the recovery.
- Former Kingdom Heirs tenor Billy Hodges has remained employed at Dollywood since leaving the Kingdom Heirs in December. He has now been given his own show, singing at the old-fashioned one-room Robert F. Thomas Chapel on Fridays and Saturdays at 1:30 and 3:30, and on Sunday at 3:30.
Video of the Week
The Jay Stone Singers, one of the newer artists on Pinnacle Records (Crossroads’ development label) might not exactly be household names yet. But this video, which they posted a week ago, is to cute to ignore (and leave at eleven views, of which two or three have been me!)
Emma and Stone Carter, now in their teens, have stepped up alongside their parents Bobby and Sharona to hold down two of the four parts in the mixed quartet.
As always, consider the News Roundup comment section as an open thread.
