AboutÂ ThreeÂ Bridges
ThreeÂ Bridgesâ€™ musicÂ is rooted inÂ traditionalÂ “Southern gospel” andÂ “black gospel”Â music.Â This blended style has madeÂ ThreeÂ BridgesÂ an internationally-acclaimedÂ Gospel group â€” oneÂ that is known forÂ tight harmonies, a unique vocal style, an exciting and energy packed stage presence and, most importantly,Â for spreading the joy of the Good News of Christ. They have entertained and ministered to millions through their recordings, TV appearances and live shows â€” which is whyÂ ThreeÂ BridgesÂ has quickly become one of the most prominent Gospel groups in Christian music today.Â ThreeÂ BridgesÂ has enjoyed great radio successÂ on the Southern Gospel Music Charts, including seven top 10â€²s andÂ threeÂ #1â€²s.Â The trio consists of Elliott McCoy (founder and baritone), Shannon SmithÂ (lead) and Jeremie HudsonÂ (tenor). Although from varied backgrounds and hailing from different parts of the country, God brought theseÂ threeÂ men together for His purpose and glory. They minister wherever God calls them to spread His Word through music.
About TheÂ Wisecarvers
Celebrating over a decade in ministry, Dove Award nominated group, TheÂ Wisecarvers, are steadily becoming known as one of Christian music’s most dynamic groups. What started as singing a few songs at family reunions and local churches has now blossomed into a worldwide ministry, reaching not only the United States, but into Puerto Rico, Canada, and the Netherlands. This tight knit family has released a steady stream of chart topping singles, including originally penned songs “Just To Save Me,” “Turn Back Time,” “I Need You,” “Falling In Place”, “Plain And Simple”, and Singing News Top 10 radio hits “Don’t You Think You Ought To Worship Me” and “It Was Jesus!â€ With songwriting being such a large aspect of the groupâ€™s ministry, it allows them to share their personal stories and testimonies. Each member has a unique writing style but enjoys coming together to write as a team, drawing from their individual experiences. TheÂ WisecarversÂ have been invited to perform as Main Stage Artist at Southern Gospel’s largest gathering, the National Quartet Convention, and at Dolly Parton’s exciting theme park, Dollywood! However, youâ€™ll find them most often at churches across the country, sharing the message that God has laid on their hearts. With a special emphasis on ministering to other families, they have hosted their annual â€œItâ€™s A Family Thingâ€ Smoky Mountain Weekend Getaway since 2015. The retreat provides a place for not only families, but couples, youth groups and friends to reconnect with each other and refocus on their relationship with Christ. This event has become a staple of their ministry.
AboutÂ SteveÂ Ladd
