Fwd: Victoria Bowlin To Perform at Rachael Shirey Flowers Farewell ConcertNashville, Tenn – Popular 65/40 Nashville recording artist, Victoria Bowlin will be joining her family, The Shireys, for a special New Year’s Eve reunion concert event on Tuesday, December 31, 7:00 pm, at the Community Church Of Praise in Stockbridge, Georgia. A love offering will be received in lieu of ticket sales.

Being billed as a “Farewell Concert,” it will mark the last performance by Rachael Shirey Flowers. Rachael has made the decision to step down from full time traveling ministry so she can spend more time with her family, and be more involved in ministry at her own local church. Of the move Rachael states “I feel led to focus on a different type of ministry with my husband in our home church. God has called us to work as a team, and we believe that time is now.”

Fwd: Victoria Bowlin To Perform at Rachael Shirey Flowers Farewell ConcertVictoria is pleased and thankful to be able to take time from her own busy touring schedule to join her family, The Shirey’s, in this important event. She traveled and ministered with her family over 20 years before stepping into solo ministry, with her husband, Aaron Bowlin, five years ago. Victoria stated, “I look forward to bringing in the New Year with my family and watching Rachael step into a new season of life and ministry.”

The Shireys

The Shireys will continue to travel and minister, and further information about their future endeavors will be released soon. No concert dates will be missed or rescheduled as they make this transition. Of the upcoming change, Wayne Shirey says, “God has great things in store for The Shireys, and we are looking forward to continuing to travel and minister. We’re not quitting any time soon.”

Victoria Shirey Bowlin

After much prayer and consideration, Victoria Bowlin will be leaving The Shireys. She and her husband, Aaron have been called into a ministry of their own. Victoria will be a full time soloist, and Aaron will join her on the road as much as possible and preach as well. Her last date with The Shireys will be Dec. 31, 2014. On Jan. 1, 2015, the new ministry will launch. Aaron and Victoria are so excited to see what God has in store for them! Victoria will also be speaking at some women’s conferences and special events. They will also do some revivals and are open to whatever God has for them. The Shireys will continue to sing as a trio. Rachael Shirey will step up and take over Victoria’s position. “It was such a hard decision to make to leave the family and branch out on my own. This is all I’ve ever known, but I know that God has some amazing things in store, not only for my husband and I, but for my family as well. We prayed extensively for several months over this and know this is God’s will for us. It’s a new season!”, says Victoria. The Shireys say, “We are very proud of Victoria and Aaron.

Exclusive Concert Report: “The Shireys” By Angela Griffin

Written by SGN Scoops on August 3, 2011 – 10:36 am -

{July 30, 2011 Unity Baptist Church, Roebuck, SC}

The powerful voices of The Shirey’s rang out on a hot summer day in the little town of Roebuck, SC.

The Shirey’s started the service with “I’ll Sing A New Song” showcasing their tight knit family harmonies. Darlene did a remarkable job on one of my all time favorite songs “Just Any Day Now,” a song that is so prevalent in this modern day in which we live. Darlene also delivered an anointed version of “Little David” written by Sandy Knight. “I’m Gonna Rise” 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 “My Load Has Been Lifted.” 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 Shirey’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.
“If That Don’t Make You Want To Go” was heartfelt by all. She also delivered a great vocal performance on “Don’t You Want To Go.”

On a lighter note…Just before Victoria, Rachael, Darlene and Wayne were to take the stage; Darlene looked at Victoria and said “something is not right with my shoes.” Victoria discovered that her mother had her shoes on the wrong feet! (Well Darlene, there’s a first time for everything.)

SGNScoops would like to thank The Shireys for a special time of music and ministry and also to Angela Griffin for the concert report.
