John Ashcroft to appear at NQC
The National Quartet Convention distributed a press release yesterday announcing that John Ashcroft will be a keynote speaker at this year’s event:
Former Missouri Governor, U.S. Senator and U.S. Attorney General, John Ashcroft, has been confirmed as a keynote speaker during this year’s National Quartet Convention. He will speak at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, September 15th. He will be delivering a speech focusing on the value he places on his Christian faith and how it has guided his life and career. In addition, being a noted singer and songwriter, General Ashcroft will also be performing some of his original gospel songs accompanied by Greater Vision. His keynote address is part of the Thursday Showcase Spectaculars. To order showcase passes or to find out any other information about the National Quartet Convention, just visit www.nqconline.com.
As others have observed, due to his long-lasting love for Southern Gospel music, his previous appearances singing, and the fact that he will be singing original Gospel songs accompanied by Greater Vision, there is likely to only be a minute fraction of the controversy that accompanied Sarah Palin’s appearance last year.
One other thing worth noting: The link at the end of the press release isn’t natqc.com, it’s nqconline.com. That said, if you click it, it will redirect you to natqc.com; however, this seems to be an early hint that they are either considering or have decided to change domains from the long-confusing natqc option.
