Pigeon Forge, TN â€“ Thursday
night at the 57th annual NQC (National Quartet Convention)
at the LeConte Center
in Pigeon Forge, TN
was a very special evening. As Grammy award winner and fan favorite Jason Crabb
closed out his final performance of the week, he launched a pensive version of “America, The Beautiful.” An overwhelming sense of patriotism swept through the audience as they stood their feet. As evening hosts Susan Whisnant
and Michael Booth
returned to the stage, Booth led the crowd in prayer for America saying: “God, have mercy on America, save us. You are our only hope.” The unplanned, spontaneous theme continued throughout the night with multiple artists – including Canton Junction
and Ivan Parker
– performing patriotic songs during their sets, drawing the nation to repentance and restoration.
The 57th Annual NQC concludes this evening with performances by GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame members The Hoppers, Greater Vision, fan favorites The Perrys, Triumphant Quartetand the Collingsworth Family, among others.
The National Quartet Convention is the only event of the year where fans can see and hear their favorite artists at a single event, and then meet them and purchase their products. Music lovers can enjoy their favorite music all day and night, as music spectaculars begin each morning and continue until at least 11 PM each evening.
