Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â â€œWest Virginia Sings the Gospel!â€ will be held Friday-Saturday, August 12-13, 2016 at the Christ Temple Church in Huntington, WV.Â This two-day event will feature many of Gospel Musicâ€™s top artists.

Brian Free & Assurance, Josh & Ashley Franks
Saturday, August 13th, 6pm â€“ Goodman Revival, Kingsmen, Gold City,

What makes this event so unique is that there are no tickets being sold!Â Just a $15 donation per person will be requested at the door each night, and a love offering will be received.Â There are many hotels in the Huntington area, close to the church.
Some may ask, why West Virginia?Â Pastor Bill Bailey shares, â€œWe are excited to bring a quality southern gospel event to an area so rich in gospel music history.Â There are so many fans and supporters of gospel music in this part of the country, and it only seemed natural to add this event to our concert schedule.â€
â€œWest Virginia Sings the Gospelâ€ is part of a series of concert events presented by Bill Bailey and Josh Franks.Â Other events include â€œMobile Sings the Gospelâ€ (Mobile, AL); Louisiana Sings the Gospel (Oak Grove, LA); and â€œJackson Sings the Gospelâ€ (Jackson, TN).Â Both Bailey and Franks continue to promote their own individual concerts throughout the year; including Baileyâ€™s â€œWinter Gospel Music Conventionâ€ in Palmetto, FL, and Franksâ€™ â€œJames D. Vaughan Quartet Festivalâ€ in Lawrenceburg, TN.
Â Whatâ€™s on the horizon?Â Josh Franks responds, â€œWe are looking into other areas and venues for future development.Â We believe that the future for southern gospel music is bright, and we are excited to help present that across the country!â€
