IMC CONCERTS ANNOUNCES GOSPEL MUSIC CELEBRATION CRUISE SAILING TO CANADA & NEW ENGLAND IN 2020

Written by Staff on September 5, 2019 – 8:21 pm -

IMC CONCERTS ANNOUNCES GOSPEL MUSIC CELEBRATION CRUISE SAILING TO CANADA & NEW ENGLAND IN 2020Johnson City, TN – Southern Gospel Music lovers will have another option for cruising on the high seas in 2020. IMC Concerts has announced plans for the Gospel Music Celebration to set sail  through New England and into Canada. This new destination for Gospel Music Celebration is to commemorate its 10-year anniversary.
IMC offered its first cruise option to Southern Gospel Music lovers in 2010. Over the past 10 years, Gospel Music Celebration cruises presented by IMC and Inspiration Cruises have historically sold out as Southern Gospel Music lovers have enjoyed trips to such picturesque destinations as the Caribbean, the Mexican Riviera, Alaska and Hawaii.

“For many years we have enjoyed a wonderful relationship with Steve Dick and the great staff at Inspiration Cruises,” states IMC Concerts and GMC President, Landon Beene. “We have partnered with Inspiration to provide the best experience for our passengers from the point of reservation until our passengers walk of the ship. We are delighted to offer this trip to a new destination.”

The Gospel Music Celebration Canada New England Cruise will set sail aboard Holland America’s MS Amsterdam from historic Boston, MA, on September 5 and will return to Quebec City, Canada on September 12 with stops in Bar Harbor, ME, Halifax Nova Scotia, Sydney, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
“Boston and the New England area have such a rich history,” Beene states. “Additionally, it is a beautiful area, especially in the fall of the year. We are delighted to offer this option as a new destination. In fact, it is something our passengers have asked us to offer. We always listen to our passengers and take their requests into consideration when planning trips. There was such an overwhelming success to our first cruise we planned 10 years ago to the Mexican Riviera, then our travelers wanted to go to Alaska, then the Caribbean, then Hawaii. Trips to those destinations have been so successful so we felt it was time to take our friends on a journey of a lifetime to the beautiful New England region. We are looking forward to another sold out Gospel Music Celebration.”
TriumphantAs Beene states, limited cabins are available for this exciting Gospel Music Celebration. “Space is limited to only 650 passengers, so we expect this cruise to sell out very quickly. We encourage Southern Gospel Music lovers to book their reservations very soon,” Been says.
The 2020 Canada New England Gospel Music Celebration  will feature many of the most popular groups in Southern Gospel Music, including the Booth Brothers, The Collingsworth Family, Greater Vision, Legacy Five and Triumphant Quartet, as well as fan favorite, renown speaker, Dennis Swanberg.

11th Hour experiences memorable first trip to Canada

Written by Staff on August 31, 2017 – 2:25 pm -

11th Hour

11th Hour

11th Hour member, Jaquita Lindsey, talks about the group’s first visit north of the border.

11th Hour had the privilege in July of this year of being part of Canada’s Gospel Music Celebration, held annually in Red Deer, Alta. This event is comparable to our National Quartet Convention that is held in Pigeon Forge, TN.
Many great groups were in attendance for this year’s event, such as the Booth Brothers, Collingsworth family, Mark Trammell Quartet, Greater Vision, Triumphant Quartet and Legacy Five. We also had the opportunity to meet and hear a few Canadian groups.

Traveling to Canada was a first for Grant (Gibson), Amber (Eppinette) and I. We call Grant our world traveler, having visited about every state and several countries. But Red Deer was a first for us all. The people greeted us warmly and made us feel so special. Many friends came to our product table and wanted to put “faces to the voices they had been hearing on the radio”.

Gerald Wolfe, of Greater Vision, emceed the nightly concerts. He also held one of his Hymn Sings on Friday afternoon. Second Half Quartet sang a few songs to open up the sing. Stan Whitmire graced us with his phenomenal piano skills for the sing-a-long. 11th Hour was asked to sing “Love of God,” which Amber sang better than I had ever heard her. She laughed that it was because Stan was playing for her.
The only fun we had time for was Saturday morning when we spent a little time in downtown Calgary. Mark Trammell Quartet was in charge of Chapel that morning. Since we skipped it to “go have fun”, his guys turned our backdrop upside down and rearranged our product table. We all had a good laugh about it.

We hope to get invited back in the future to Canada’s Gospel Music Celebration. That trip was memorable for all three of us.

About 11th Hour

(http://11thhourgg.com/bio/, August 31, 2017)…In 2012, 11th Hour signed a recording contract with Crossroads Music Group. “The doors of opportunity that a recording contract opened up were incredible. We had a support that would help

us reach more and more people for the Kingdom,” says Amber. And with that support, 11th Hour has done just that. They’ve had multiple Top 10 hits and been nominated for numerous awards in Southern Gospel music such as Trio of the Year and Album of the Year, while Amber was nominated for Soprano of the Year. In 2014, 11th Hour took home the Sunrise Award at the SGN Scoops Diamond Awards. “It has been such an honor receiving support from people you respect and admire,” shares Amber. “God has so much more in store for us as we travel and bring glory to His name.”There’s so much more work to be done as these three continue to step out in faith. Amber, Grant, and Jaquita, are ready to go wherever the Lord opens doors, singing and proclaiming the good news of Jesus… Read more here.

SGN Scoops Pastors’ Corner with Eric Bennett of Triumphant

Written by Staff on June 7, 2015 – 8:37 am -

Eric Bennett

Eric Bennett

For this edition of Pastors’ Corner, we welcome Eric Bennett from Triumphant Quartet. Eric was formerly a Pastor of a Baptist Church, so we felt he was well qualified for this Pastors’ Corner series on “The Importance of Music in the Life of a Christian.” We trust you will enjoy his blog.

 

TD Jakes once said that anyone can praise the Lord, but true worship can only come from someone in whom God has done a supernatural work. (1 Peter 2:19,20: “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an Holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the wonderful acts of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light: Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.)
I agree with Brother Jakes. True heart-felt worship can only come from someone
who has experienced the hand of God working in their life; someone that God has delivered; someone that God has set free.

Joshua 4:19-24, tells the story of when the children of Israel set up 12 stones as a reminder of what God had done in their life. Most all lyrics in Southern Gospel music reflect on what God has done, either on the cross or something He’s done in our personal life. Whether it is Chris Allman’s, “I Could Never Praise Him Enough,” or Bill Gaither’s, “Jesus We Just Want To Thank You,” which if I were you, I would do myself a favor and look this song up on Youtube and watch the Cathedrals video of this. It’ll make you want to shout “Glory” as George would say! All these songs remind us of the goodness of God.

For me personally, I can sit and listen to songs like these and be reminded of all the things God has done for me. I am so very thankful for salvation, my wife, family, my GRANDKIDS, house, job, health, friends, and on and on. We all have so much to thank God for.

2015 SGNScoops Magazine

2015 SGNScoops Magazine

I think music either helps you focus on God or takes your focus off God. The importance of listening to Christian music is that it brings our attention to the One who gave us the breath that we breathe, another good reason to thank Him!

If we could get our mind off who is singing and get it on WHO is being sung about, we could experience true worship. Some of my best times with The Lord are not at church, concerts, or singings. Some of my best times with the Lord are driving the bus at 3am in morning or in my truck, listening to Christian music. God shows up and here we go!

Music will never take the place of Bible Study and Prayer time with God. But, it can truly keep our minds on Him. (Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.)

The world has so much noise today. Why wouldn’t a follower of Christ want to keep focused on Him all day long?! What better way to do that than listening to music that speaks of Him?

If you don’t already, I would suggest that you start listening to Christian music either on radio or by CD. Listen to the lyrics. Be reminded of all the things God has done in your life. Be reminded of “I once was lost but now I’m found, I once was blind but now I see.” If you do, I think you will experience true worship, you will keep focused on Him and I think your day will be so much brighter!

Candi’s Catch-ups: Greenbrier Quartet Festival

Greenbrier

By Candi Combs

Daywind Music Group Hosts Greenbrier Quartet Festival 2015

Amongst the snow-topped mountains of White Sulphar Springs,West Virginia, Daywind Music Group held the first Greenbrier Quartet Festival at the extraordinary Greenbrier Resort. The event drew attendees from New Jersey to Florida and even a few Canadians. This endeavor marked an inaugural attempt by Scott Godsey and Daywind to host a multi-day event at a luxury resort. This geographic location is very different from the typical Southern Gospel venues that fans are accustomed to attending.

The Greenbrier welcomed each person with a smile and a large sweet tea! From that point forward, everything was presented on a whole new level. Even the seats in the concert hall were velvet covered while multiple stations in the room held pitchers of ice-chilled water.

Tribute Quartet, led by Gary Casto, started off the first night with their usual flair and energetic music. The lively group performed many charting songs and favorites, including, “Homesick Angel” and “Good News From Jerusalem,” featuring Josh Singletary. Read more »
