Voices Won celebrated their 13th Anniversary with a weekend of great Southern Gospel music. Voices Won is a trio from Dalton, GA consisting of three brothers; Jaron who is the oldest and writes most of the songs they sing; Shantell who is the middle brother and also their military man having served in the Air Force, and Staclynn, who is the youngest and mom’s favorite. They opened the concert each evening which was held at Crosspoint Christian Center in Dalton, GA.
Opening night included the story-telling Mark Bishop who shared a lot of his story songs, pleasing the audience. He even sang a few that he had not written. Winners of five 2014 Diamond Awards, Karen Peck and New River took the stage singing from their Revival CD and a few all-time favorites, ending their program with “Four Days Late.”
Saturday night, Voices Won took a few requests from the audience after they had sung. Then, on to the stage popped the group that has a record of having number-one songs, The McKameys. They made up different singing groups out of their stage personnel. As usual, The McKameys came away pleasing the crowd.
Up next was another fan favorite, Triumphant Quartet. Of course, during their set, Clayton had to have his way and sing “The Old White Flag.”
Tissues, napkins, hankies and even toilet paper came out of women’s purses when he sang. With both these groups performing, it was a sold out show. Folks had to make room for the standing crowd as very few seats were left
Danny Jones emceed the two-night event. Voices Won’s mother, Regina and father, Aaron did a great job preparing meals both nights for folks to enjoy before the concert. If you didn’t want a full meal they also had hot dogs and barbeque sandwiches as well as pinto beans and cornbread.
Voices Won is already preparing for their 14th Anniversary, which is always held the second Friday and Saturday night in November. For more information visit
