(Ft. Oglethorpe, GA) Phenomenal Bass singer Alan Brewster of Southern Sound Quartet received the high honor of being inducted as an individual into the Tri-State Gospel Music Hall of Fame in Ft. Oglethorpe, GA. This Georgia native is known for his motivation in business, and his low voice that every great quartet needs.

Southern Sound Lead singer and Manager, Ben Harris said, “Although Alan remained a board member of the group during his three year absence, he was of course not a regular touring member during those years. We have had many promoters, pastors and friends ask about Alan, and now he is back and we could not be more pleased. Alan brings far more than his rich and talented voice. He also brings a wealth of business background, a firm commitment to Christ, and a friendly demeanor that everyone loves.”

Tri-State Gospel Music Hall of Fame was founded in 2005. It was formed to recognize and remember the efforts of those individuals whom have given to the advancement and support of Gospel Music in the Southeast Tennessee, Northwest Georgia, and Northeast Alabama, locally known as the Tri-state area.

There were 25 new inductees this year, including nationally known Jack Clark and Elmer Cole.

This years ceremony was held at Parkway Baptist Temple, Fort Oglethorpe, GA on August the 2nd.

Alan stated “I started singing bass in a young people’s church quartet at the age of 15. Since then I have sung with the Royal Heirs Quartet of Lafayette, GA, Kings Messengers Quartet of Lafayette, GA, Happy Harmony Quartet of Chattanooga, TN, Called Out Quartet of Dalton, GA, Hymnsmen Quartet of Cleveland, TN and Southern Sound Quartet of Nashville, TN. I joined Southern Sound in April of 2007 and stayed til October of 2010. After much thought and prayer I rejoined the group in August 2013.

My favorite memory would have to be my first performance on the main-stage of the National Quartet Convention with Southern Sound.”

The Madam Carroll Cruise Ship

The Madam Carroll Cruise Ship

Nashville, TN (July 25, 2014) Outstanding Gospel Artists, Southern Sound, recently performed on the The Madam Carroll Cruise Ship. Singing to a capacity crowd Southern Sound thrilled the ship’s crew and passengers with their smooth harmonies.

Ben Harris, Lead singer and Manager of the group stated “There is something really special about singing along with the movement of the ship. It seems even the audience receives the music in a special way.”

Further commenting on the cruise, Tenor Will Shaw said “We were singing songs from our newest project “Timeless”. The message of our songs didn’t care if we were on Lake Freeman in Monticello, IN or on the Atlantic Ocean, hearts were touched and blessed by the songs we sang.”

Southern Sound also recently performed at the 2014 Absolutely Gospel Music Festival in Smyrna, TN. Well received by the crowd, their singing had the fans on their feet several times with standing ovations.

The Madam Carroll Cruise Ship has been around for 38 years. The total capacity is 500 passengers.

She was built from scratch by Captain Bill Luse, and in 2012 the Madam Carroll was purchased by Tom Heckard of Logansport. Heckard brought new ideas and amazing renovations and is proud to carry on this community’s tradition.

If the Madam were on salt water, she would be classified as a ship. She is 135 feet in length with a beam of 36 feet. She is powered by twin V-8 Detroit Diesel Engines and cruises at 10 knots. She carries 750 gallons of fresh water and 825 gallons of diesel fuel.

Billy Graham Library 2013 A Joyous Christmas Celebration By Angela Griffin

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on December 11, 2013 – 10:30 am -

2012-01-01 00.00.00-44A joyous Christmas celebration comes to life as the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association presents “Christmas at the Library 2013” in Charlotte, NC. The spirit of Christmas rings throughout the library and the most beautiful, magnificent Christmas tree adorns the lobby. The message of our Lord and Savior is carved in the beams above and Billy Graham’s life journey is shared throughout multimedia presentations, photos, and memorabilia. Upon exiting the library you are met with a joyful representation of Christmas.

The sounds of the season ring out as artists come from near and far to share in the glorious display of the birth of Christ. The Foothills Community Choir, The Griffins, Southern Sound, Praise Masters and other artists sing fan favorites like: ” Beautiful Star of Bethlehem,” “Silent Night,” ” Go Tell,” “O Holy Night” and countless other Christmas favorites that embrace everyone as they enjoy the festivities at hand.

Angela Griffin of The Griffins shares, “It was a complete honor for The Griffins to take part in the Christmas at the Library 2013 celebration. As I looked upon the faces of the young and old while we were singing, I remember thinking that the greatest gift ever given was a little baby Boy that came into the world, not to condemn the world, but to give life and give it more abundantly. We serve the most high God every time we minister in song, but this opportunity will forever be etched in my heart.”

A live nativity scene is located just before you enter the library. A still-life representation of Jesus birth, complete with a little baby boy lying in a manger and Mary and Joseph by his side. The shepherds, lamb, cow, camel, donkey and others make it seem very real. A guest, Betty Stacey, pointed out that night that the brightest star was shining just over the live Nativity scene of December 6th scene as if it were the first Christmas morn. It was a breathtaking site.

Oh what fun it is to watch the kids as they gather on the heated patio to listen as Christmas books are read from Ruth’s Attic Bookstore located inside. The children are snug and warm they sit quietly. You can see their little eyes light up as the storyteller captures their attention with the wondrous stories of
Christmas.

2012-01-01 00.00.00-35Children of all ages also experience the ambiance of Christmas at the library by guided horse-drawn carriage rides around the beautiful Library and Billy Graham Evangelistic Headquarters. The 15-minute ride captures a picture perfect canvas of what Christmas is all about: a joyous time of year, kids laughing, lights flashing, carolers singing complete with the live Nativity scene of Jesus’ birth.

You can experience “Christmas At The Library 2013” now through December 23, 2013. Visit www.billygrahamlibrary.org for a complete overview of all the activities, hours of operation, and cost. May the spirit of Christmas be with you always.
