  1. That line is good enough to steal! :o)

    • What do you think I just did? 😆

  2. Love it!

  3. Me too…

  4. PERFECT…

  5. What a sweet, sweet thought and how true! (for both artists mentioned) That is one thing I really miss regarding the currant GVB.

    • Actually, I think Wes Hampton is still someone I’d point to as a lyrics-on-his-face sort of guy. 🙂

      • I would say the same about Mark Lowry, actually. That is really what I love most about him.

  6. Yes, Wes is that way too.

  7. I agree about Wes, too.

  8. The love of almighty God shines through the eyes of Guy Penrod. His face reflects the depth of his faith and is evidence of his intimate relationship with the Creator. He is more than a singer.

    • AMEN

  9. Well said, Kathryn!

  10. Perfect description for Frank Seamans! He is one of our favorite tenor singers – personality wise – and miss him as part of Legacy Five. (We’re not saying Gus isn’t wonderfully talented, but we had a connection with Frank.)

    (Yep, we’re going through archives!)
