Wetumka, OK The award winning Williamsons of Wetumka, Oklahoma have been invited to perform for opening night of this yearâ€™s season of The Great Passion Play in Eureka Springs, Arkansas on May 2, 2014.
Darin Hebert, popular bass singer for The Williamsons, said, â€œWe are humbled to be asked to participate at such a great event. Great things have been happening in Eureka Springs and The Williamsons are excited to be a part.â€
Manager of the group, Donnie Williamson shared that in mid-December 2012 he received a call informing him that The Great Passion Play was going in to foreclosure on January 1. The Williamsons joined forces with The Gospel Station of Ada, Oklahoma and several business leaders and other concerned individuals in the Eureka Springs area and they raised $75,000.00 about three weeks. This was enough to satisfy creditors and hold off the foreclosure. 2013 proved to be the best season the park had seen in years. Attendance grew last season by at least 30% and even greater things are expected for 2014.
The park also plans to expose visitors to even more Gospel music in 2014 with their first major concert promotion on June 21 and 22. The Williamsons will be performing there again with other talented artist such at The Freemans, The Nelons, and Red Roots.
