What is each Southern Gospel group’s signature song?
It seems to be a slow news day so far, so let’s turn to an idea from the mailbag. Reader Lindsay P. writes in:
Daniel- I really appreciate your blog; especially the videos you post. I try to watch as many as I can. I also find it interesting when you encourage input from your readers. How about this idea? Ask readers to name a group, and THE defining song in their history. I know some groups might have several, but it should be interesting. Examples would be The McKameys (God On The Mountain); Goodmans (I Wouldn’t Take Nothin’ For My Journey Now); Freemans (Chidren Of The Dust), KPNR (Four Days Late), and so on.
For some groups, this is easy, like, among the ones he named, The McKameys, The Freemans, and Karen Peck and New River. Answers might also be fairly obvious for Gold City (Midnight Cry) and Greater Vision (My Name is Lazarus).
But things are a little more complicated for other groups:
- Cathedrals: “We Shall See Jesus,” “Champion of Love,” or a third song?
- Booth Brothers: “Still Feeling Fine” or “He Saw it All”?
- Dove Brothers: “Get Away Jordan,” “Didn’t it Rain,” or “I Can Pray”?
- Hoppers: “Shoutin’ Time” or “Jerusalem”?
- What about Legacy Five, Triumphant Quartet, the Mark Trammell Quartet, the Bill Gaither Trio, the Collingsworth Family, the Isaacs, the Kingdom Heirs, the Rambos, the Statesmen, or the Talleys?
What do you say?
