Gaither Vocal Band & Signature Sound return to NQC
Gospel Music Update has the story; the Gaither Vocal Band and Signature Sound will be at NQC 2008. NQC VP Clarke Beasley, who runs the day-to-day operations of the office, stated that they will be doing a showcase featuring songs from their Together project on Thursday, and they will also be appearing on the Friday night concert lineup.
It’s no secret that I love Southern Gospel Music. It’s an important part of my childhood and my musical heritage, so naturally there are few things that warm my heart quite like hearing four singers and a piano rev it up! In my mind, the only thing better than a great gospel quartet is a whole week full of them! So I’m looking forward to the opportunity to participate in the National Quartet Convention with great anticipation. It is always a wonderful time to hear lots of great quartet music and connect with old friends.
This is good news for Gaither, for NQC, and most of all, for the fans. There was a possibility that the genre would split into sub-genres, Gaither Gospel and Southern Gospel. But this should go a long way toward closing that breach, and our genre will be stronger as a result.
