The powerful voices of The Shireyâ€™s rang out on a hot summer day in the little town of Roebuck, SC.
The Shireyâ€™s started the service with â€œIâ€™ll Sing A New Songâ€ showcasing their tight knit family harmonies. Darlene did a remarkable job on one of my all time favorite songs â€œJust Any Day Now,â€ a song that is so prevalent in this modern day in which we live. Darlene also delivered an anointed version of â€œLittle Davidâ€ written by Sandy Knight. â€œIâ€™m Gonna Riseâ€ performed by Wayne Shirey was also an audience favorite.
Victoria Shirey is an accomplished singer/songwriter. Often times the best songs are written after one has been through difficult times in their life. After a short battle with depression, Victoria penned the song â€œMy Load Has Been Lifted.â€ What a powerful song. Victoria just has a natural gift to minister. I see a very bright future for Victoria indeed.
At age 19, Rachael is the youngest member of The Shireyâ€™s. Rachael is the 2011 Female Vocal Solo winner of the C.O.G. State Teen Talent Competition. She also writes songs for the ministry.
â€œIf That Donâ€™t Make You Want To Goâ€ was heartfelt by all. She also delivered a great vocal performance on â€œDonâ€™t You Want To Go.â€
On a lighter noteâ€¦Just before Victoria, Rachael, Darlene and Wayne were to take the stage; Darlene looked at Victoria and said â€œsomething is not right with my shoes.â€ Victoria discovered that her mother had her shoes on the wrong feet! (Well Darlene, thereâ€™s a first time for everything.)
SGNScoopsÂ would like to thank The Shireys for a special time of music and ministry and also to Angela Griffin for the concert report.
