12 Days of Christmas, #8: Inspirations
If I had the power to give anyone any Christmas gift, my eighth gift would go to the Inspirations. I would give them Dallas Rogers as their tenor.
This would enable Southern Gospel legend Archie Watkins to step back to being a “featured soloist.” He could still sing the songs he wanted to, but would not have to tote the mail for the tenor harmony part. This could give him five or ten more productive years on the road.
To my friends in the Dixie Echoes: Sorry for giving your tenor away! I wish you would find the best undiscovered tenor out there…or that perhaps you could talk Anthony Facello into coming back out on the road.
