Triumphant Quartet and Soul’d Out Quartet appear at Gospel Winterfest

Written by Staff on March 9, 2015 – 2:27 pm -

 

Triumphant Quartet

Triumphant Quartet

KNOXVILLE, TN – For the third straight year, New Destiny Productions brought back the best combination of quartets for Gospel Winterfest: the award-winning Triumphant Quartet and Soul’d Out Quartet together on stage at Wallace Memorial Baptist Church in Knoxville, TN.

   
Soul'd Out

Soul’d Out

Soul’d Out Quartet from Georgetown, OH opened the concert after Russ Woolard, President of New Destiny Productions, opened with a great song, “Holy Spirit Come In This Place.”  After a few songs, Matt Rankin, founder and owner of Soul’d Out who started the group in 2004, introduced the members of the group: Michael Howard, piano and Dusty Barrett, tenor have been with the group for seven

Matt Rankin

Matt Rankin

years. Former lead for the Kingsmen Quartet, Bryan Hutson joined the group three-and-a-half years ago and sings lead, and Ian Owen, bass, joined two-and-a-half years ago. Matt writes most of the songs that the group sings.

 
The fan favorite Southern Gospel male quartet, Triumphant, was up next. Since their beginning 13 years ago at the Louise Mandrell Theater in Pigeon Forge, TN, Triumphant has won dozens of awards nationally, as well as receiving Grammy and Dove nominations. They have also had the opportunity to sing at Carnegie Hall. They opened with the song, “We Will Remember,” as well as many more from their repertoire, to the appreciation of the attendees.
Eric Bennett, bass and spokesman for the group, introduced the members of the group.  The only change in the group since its inception has been the piano

Ian Owen

Ian Owen

player.  The four vocalists are the original members. Eric and David Sutton, tenor for the group, have been standing on stage together for 20 years.  They were members of Kingdom Heirs until Triumphant was formed.  They added Clayton Inman, lead, to the group, who had sung for several groups including Won by One, and Scott Inman, baritone, who is also a prolific songwriter.  The group was close to home, so their families were there and were introduced to the audience.

 
The concert ended after a little over three hours with both groups on stage singing, ‘When The Trumpet Sounds.”
North Metro Gospel Singings will present a similar event  May 30 – 6:00 pm at Shiloh Hills Baptist Church, Kennesaw, GA with the same two groups. We encourage all Gospel fans in the area to come out,

Triumphant Quartet In Concert At Douglasville Georgia

Written by Staff on January 9, 2015 – 10:36 am -

Triumphant Quartet

Triumphant Quartet

On January 7, 2015, we were in New Genesis Church in Douglasville, GA to see the award-winning Triumphant Quartet.  This church has a lot of Southern Gospel Concerts and Triumphant Quartet is one of everyone’s  favorite groups that visit there.

image3Triumphant Quartet has been singing together since 2003 when they started singing at the Louise Mandrell Theater in their home town Pigeon Forge,TN.  Before forming the Quartet, one of the members was at the theater almost every Sunday morning, singing in the worship service there.  Louise decided she needed a full time quartet to appear daily at the theater so she contacted them and what started there is now history.  The four guys: Eric Bennett, David Sutton, Clayton Inman and Scotty Inman, have been singing together ever since.  In 2008, after Ms. Mandrell left the theater, they felt it was God’s will for them to go on the road full-time.
mercys call edit

Mercy’s Call

Eric and David have been on stage singing together for several years. They had been performing in Dollywood together, and when Triumphant was formed, they asked Clayton and Scotty to join them.  Clayton had been singing with Won by One, a group he formed in the mid-’90’s, and Scotty had been with Poet Voices. The four voices then joined together to become one of the most awarded male quartets on the road today.

image2

Eric Bennett

In Douglasville, Triumphant sang a good mixture of songs: fast, old, and new, and then Eric did a great closing invitation.  A local group, Mercy’s Call, which consists of Jennifer McAllister, Joey Peace and Jelinda Hill, opened the concert.

A great time was had by all! To experience Triumphant in a venue near you, visit their website at http://www.triumphantquartet.com/

A Christmas Feast

Written by Staff on December 16, 2014 – 3:02 pm -

sgnscoopschristmasheader3From SGN Scoops December 2012 – Compiled by Lorraine Walker

Christmas time for many is a time of being with family and friends, socializing, singing and enjoying treats we may have only once a year. We have gathered a sampling of favorite recipes from our SGN Scoops friends, fans and family. Special thanks to all who contributed their recipes and pictures, and to all of our readers who will enjoy making and eating these culinary concoctions. Have a Merry Christmas…and happy feasting!

Appetizers

Sandi Duncan-Clark – Features Editor, writer, SGN Scoops http://www.sgnscoops.com/
My favorite Christmas Recipe is one that we enjoy from the first of November through the New Year Holidays. This delight is good as an appetizer with dip, and as a snack with eggnog and Hot Apple Cider. And it’s great just to munch! I always make two batches in the beginning, since I know they will disappear quickly. Merry Christmas Everyone. May your Holiday be the best ever.
SANDI’S ZESTY CHEESE STRAWS
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, at room temperature
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (more or less, according to your taste preference).
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
In a food processor, add the butter, cheese, flour, salt and cayenne.
Process until a smooth dough is formed. Scoop it into your cookie press, fitted with a flat ridged tip. Pipe the dough in 2-inch strips onto a lightly greased cookie sheet.
(Alternatively, refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes and roll on a lightly floured surface into a 1/4 inch rectangle. Cut into smaller rectangles, about 2 by 3- inches, with a pizza wheel or sharp knife.) Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to racks to cool.

Main Dishes

JOAN’S WARM–YOU-UP CHRISTMAS CHILI
1 1/2 pound ground beef
2 cans beans
2 cups salsa
1 can tomato sauce
2 tbsp chili powder
1 chopped onion
1 cup frozen corn
1 cup shredded cheese
Brown meat and drain. Add meat and remaining ingredients in slow cooker, except cheese. Heat on LOW 5-6 hrs, or HIGH 3-4 hours, add shredded cheese before serving.
Add fresh green peppers for a festive look!

Channing Eleton – artist, musician http://channingeleton.com/
My family started a tradition several years ago. After a month of turkey and dressing, sometimes you just want to do something different. One year, I suggested that we do a Mexican dinner for Christmas. Everyone loved it and we’ve been doing it ever since.
The most popular dish of these Christmas get-togethers has been Christina’s Chili Mexico. It’s easy

Channing Eleton

Channing Eleton

and quick to make and after one taste, you’ll see why the Eleton family loves it. Christina’s dish had become popular at Christmas-time; she was getting recipe requests and questions about what she called it. Up until that point, she didn’t have a name for it. I kept encouraging her to give it a name. Neither she or I had any original ideas that we liked, so I turned to my little girl for wisdom. I asked, “Chanler, what would you call Mommy’s dish that we love?”
Without hesitation, Chanler replies in her cute little five-year-old voice, “Chili Mexico”.
We smiled…it stuck…and that’s what we’ve called it ever since.
ELETON’S CHILI MEXICO
2 – 8 oz. packets cream cheese
1 1/2 cups salsa
2 cups chili
2 cups shredded cheese
In a baking dish, spread out cream cheese first. Next, comes the layer of salsa, spread evenly. The third layer will be 1 cup of the shredded cheese. Now, pour in all of chili and spread evenly. Lastly, top it with remaining cup of shredded cheese – spread evenly of course. Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes. Enjoy with your choice of nacho chips! Read more »
