CATHEDRALS FAMILY REUNION LIVE Recordings Top the Week’s Sales Charts

Cathedrals Family Reuion Live

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—September 17th, 2014–The all-new Cathedrals Family Reunion, Past Members Reunite LIVE in Concert video debuted at #1 on this past week’s Christian Music Video chart and at #2 on the Billboard Music Video chart according to Nielsen SoundScan.  The audio version of the recording topped the Southern Gospel chart and landed at #25 on the Contemporary Christian chart.

Released by Gaither Music Group and Innovative Management and Consulting, LLC (IMC), the recordings capture the historical concerts that took place on November 8th and 9th, 2013, in Fort Worth, Texas, at the MacGorman Performing Arts Center where five former members of the legendary Cathedrals combined voices to celebrate the group’s legacy and pay honor to its founders Glen Payne and George Younce.
The two-day event featured performances by tenor Ernie Haase and his GRAMMY®-nominated quartet Ernie Haase & Signature Sound; baritone Scott Fowler and Legacy Five (a group he co-founded after The Cathedrals retired); lead vocalist and piano player Gerald Wolfe and Greater Vision (the heralded trio he formed upon leaving the group); beloved baritone and bass player Mark Trammel and The Mark Trammel Quartet; and tenor Danny Funderburk, now a popular solo artist and household name among gospel music lovers.  The recordings, an encouraging walk down memory lane, are a tribute to group members Payne and Younce, two patriarchs and mentors who were an inspiration to countless singers for many decades.
The excitement about the recordings and the overwhelming response to the initial concerts in Texas has resulted in a national tour in six select markets organized by IMC in association with Showcase Management.  The tour will start this November in Akron, Ohio, the birthplace of the original Cathedral Quartet where it all began.
Produced by award-winning producer/songwriter Wayne Haun, the Cathedrals Family Reunion, Past Members Reunite LIVE in Concert CD contains classic hits such as “Wedding Music,” “Yesterday,” “Somebody Touched Me,” “Step into the Water,” “Oh, What a Savior,” “Champion of Love,” “We Shall See Jesus” and more.  The companion DVD, produced by IMC’s Landon Beene, contains 17 songs including additions “Oh, Come Along,” “We Shall Be Caught Up,” “Search Me O God” and more.
The new CD and DVD are part of a tv special airing this fall on Dish TV, DirecTV, AT&T Uverse, GaitherTV, TBN, RFD, FamilyNet, CTN, GMTN, Guardian, Liberty, TCT and TLN.  It will air in Canada on Vision TV, CTS, The Miracle Channel and Hope TV; and the projects are featured in the current HOMECOMING Magazine.
The releases are distributed by Capitol Christian Distribution and are available at retail and digital outlets worldwide including iTunes, Amazon and www.gaither.com.  For more information on the event and/or to purchase tickets or product, please visit www.CathedralsFamilyReunion.com.
