Nashville, TennÂ Award winning Gospel trio Three Bridges made a trek to Houston, Texas for a special holiday concert. It rained the whole week before and the area was already pretty saturated from those rains.
Scheduled to perform outside on Monday, May 25th, Memorial Day, everyone including the promoter was praying for good weather to get the celebration finished in time before the next batch of storms moved in. By God’s grace, the outside tent was set up, Three Bridges managed to get their sound system in place, and a 40 piece orchestra was assembled and in place by the opening note at 11:00 AM when the festivities started.
Group manager and Baritone singer, Elliot McCoy stated, “It was a wonderful program and the promoter said it was a record attendance with around 800 or more. We performed with a full orchestra and the host group,Â The Dignity Quartet. The quest speaker was Astronaut Captain Barry E. Wilmore.â€
Still in God’s favor they finished and got packed and ready to leave Houston the rain started and as you have seen on the news the City was flooded.
Lead singer Shannon Smith commented, “We were quite impressed with Captain Wilmore. He is a celebrated Navy Test Pilot, Astronaut and a committed Christian. His words were inspiring and his message was appreciated by all in attendance.â€
