Saturday News Roundup #84
- Signature Sound performed the National Anthem before a NASCAR race last year. It got a strong response—so strong that they’re being invited back. They will sing “I Pledge My Allegiance” and the National Anthem at the Atlanta Motor Speedway on Sunday, September 4.
- While we may talk about Wal-Mart’s domination—and eating up small businesses—in other fields, that’s not the case in music. It threw in the towel this week, announcing that it will be closing the MP3 download section of its online store.
- Jeff Easter’s mother, Mary Louise Sechrist, passed away last Sunday, August 7. She was 76.
- Congratulations to SoGospel Back Row’s Steve Eaton on his one-year anniversary as a Southern Gospel blogger!
Here’s a blast from the past—the early ’90s Perfect Heart singing “In the Sweet Forever”:
Danny Funderburk is singing tenor here, and Jeff Stice is on piano. Other members in this particular lineup are, if I’m not mistaken, Dale Shipley on lead, Mark Lanier on baritone, and Mike Presnell on bass.
It’s open thread Saturday—you decide!
