song of a lifetime chattanoogaCross Music Group, Chattanooga, TN {June 28, 2013} The Song of a Lifetime Experience kicked off with great success last night in Chattanooga, Tennessee.  Four legendary, multi-award winning songwriters, Phil Cross, Mark Bishop, Gerald Crabb and Squire Parsons accompanied by Channing Eleton were well received in a packed out Temple Baptist Church. The Song of a Lifetime Experience continues throughout the weekend at the home church of Squire Parsons, Trinity Baptist Church in Asheville, North Carolina tonight and then moves to Avalon Church in McDonough, Georgia on Saturday night.

“Last night was a dream come true,” stated Phil Cross. “It truly was amazing to be on stage with not only my friends, but songwriters I respect and admire. It was an incredible and moving experience as each songwriter shared their songs and some stories behind the songs.  Channing Eleton did a fabulous job at the piano tying everything all together. We appreciate the staff at my home church, Temple Baptist for doing an incredible job hosting the first Song of a Lifetime Experience and also the choir for doing a great job as well. We’re looking forward to more Song of a Lifetime events.”

Gerald Crabb added, “One thing that makes the Song of a Lifetime Experience special is that each songwriter has a unique personality, song of a lifetime chattanooga2musical style and songwriting style.  Being that we sang mostly with just Channing at the piano, the heart of the songwriter was revealed and the focus was on the message of the songs. The audience responded well to this approach and sang along with us. That was awesome!”

During the evening,  Cross, Crabb, Bishop and Parsons showcased house-hold favorite songs including “Please Forgive Me, “ “I Am Redeemed,” “Can I Pray For You,” “Sweet Beulah Land,” “Through the Fire,” “My Name Is Jesus,” “Champion of Love,” and  “He’s The Master of the Sea,” plus many more.  Some selections were accompanied by the Temple Baptist orchestra and choir.

The Song of a Lifetime Experience will be captured  during the McDonough, Georgia concert and DVDs will be made available at a future date. For more information about Song of a Lifetime, visit
