Creekside Gospel Music Convention


Written by SGN Scoops Staff on November 24, 2014 – 11:23 am -



DECLARATION of Nashville, Tennessee in conjunction with two of Michigan’s finest artists have come together to announce a benefit concert for one of the most beloved figures in the Michigan Southern Gospel scene. Victor Seaton is the owner of Encore Productions in Roseville, Michigan. For well over three decades, Seaton has been one of the main promoters of not just Southern Gospel concerts, but numerous Christian Events in the state of Michigan, as well as in regions throughout Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, and West Virginia. Through Seaton’s efforts and support, audiences spanning generations have enjoyed the artistry of legendary groups including The Cathedral Quartet, Gold City, The Kingsmen, and Bill Gaither; the region has also come to know such talented artists as Greater Vision, Legacy Five, The Booth Brothers, and many others active in the industry today.

In recent years, Seaton’s health has been in decline and he has suffered numerous health related complications. This concert has been organized to help raise funds for these bills. The concert will take place on Friday December 12th, at the Liberty Missionary Baptist Church in Monroe, Michigan. The Special Guests for the evening will be one of Southern Gospel’s most exciting and energetic new groups, DECLARATION, of Nashville, TN. Also appearing on the program that evening will be two of Michigan’s finest groups; The Sammons Family of Wyandotte and Matchless Grace of Monroe.

All of the artists on the program are thrilled to take part in this wonderful concert. Jake Sammons of Declaration, a Michigan native who has enjoyed a friendship with Seaton for years, states, “ For over thirty years, Victor Seaton has kept the light of Gospel Music burning brightly. His legacy is one of integrity, class and top tier talent all for God’s Glory.” Brian Fuson of The Sammons Family shared, “Victor Seaton has had a profound impact on my life since I first met him. It is my honor and privilege to give back to a great friend who has been such a blessing in my life.”

Admission for the concert is free, no tickets will be needed. A love offering will be received. All funds collected will go directly to Victor Seaton. For those unable to attend who would like to donate, please send your donations to Victor Seaton Concert, PO Box 38, Roseville, Michigan.
