“Several years had passed since we gathered the HOMECOMING family together in our hometown studio, so at last we were able to get the family together again and reignite the great memories we have shared over the years,” stated legendary singer, songwriter and the brand’s founder Bill Gaither.  “What an incredible time it was!  These new programs truly capture the spirit of those early gatherings that first started the HOMECOMING series. One powerful moment flowed into the next as we reminisced together and joined our voices to sing our favorite songs.”

The top-selling Gaither HOMECOMING Series, known worldwide for its TV specials and arena tours, has become a household name among gospel music lovers since its early days when the concerts featured such legendary artists as Jake Hess, Vestal and Howard Goodman, George Younce, Glen Payne, Dottie Rambo, Hovie Lister and many more gospel music mainstays.
“It’s been over six years since we had this many of our family of artists in one room to sing together,” stated Paul Sizelove, vice president of Gaither Music Group.  “Recording in the home studio brought back many special memories from years gone by, and it’s always good to see the camaraderie among these artists and experience the special moments when they join together in song.”  
Those songs include timeless favorites such as “There Is Power in the Blood,” “Working on a Building,” “Sinner Saved by Grace,” “Child of the King,” “Holy Spirit, Thou Art Welcome,” “It Is No Secret,” “We’ll Talk It Over,” “Roses Will Bloom Again,” the title tracks and more.

Shadrix Ministries – Changes

Shadrix Ministries - Changes

Shadrix Ministries – Changes

Carrollton, GA: Following the departure of Becky Miles in October 2016, Barry Shadrix and Dedra Henry of the Shadrix Trio began to pray about who God would send to fill the vacant alto position. Barry states, “We were blessed to have Becky as a key part of our ministry for over five years. After much prayer and seeking the Lords will, we asked Heather Wright from Albany, Georgia to fill in for a short time until we could audition and attain a singer. We immediately knew the Lord was moving us to ask her to join permanently. Heather previously sang with the Shadrix Trio from 2002-2005, so this is not unfamiliar territory. We are more than friends and ministry partners, we have become more like family.” Soon after, Jud Hurst from Lineville, Alabama agreed to join as well, thus filing a fourth position in the group. He provides one of the most amazing baritone voices you’ve ever heard; paired with his phenomenal piano playing essentially ended the search for the newest members of The Shadrix. Dedra says, “The orchestration of the Lord in the decision to move from a trio to a four-person group was simple. He spoke, and we obeyed. This shift in musical dynamic is exciting, and we can’t wait to let you hear this new, bold, anointed sound.
