Attention, southern gospel fans in the vicinity of Monroe, MI: I’ve been informed that some artists are holding a benefit concert this Friday the 12th to raise support for SG promoter Victor Seaton, who’s had some health problems recently. From the press release:
For well over three decades, Seaton has been one of the main promoters of not just Southern Gospel concerts, but numerous Christian Events in the state of Michigan, as well as in regions throughout Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, and West Virginia. Through Seaton’s efforts and support, audiences spanning generations have enjoyed the artistry of legendary groups including The Cathedral Quartet, Gold City, The Kingsmen, and Bill Gaither; the region has also come to know such talented artists as Greater Vision, Legacy Five, The Booth Brothers, and many others active in the industry today.
The venue is Liberty Missionary Baptist Church. The trio formerly known as Declaration (now official as Allegiance since a rock band nixed their old name) will be performing. Michigan SG blogger Brian Fuson is helping to organize the event and will also be performing with his wife and their group the Sammons Family. If you have not seen Allegiance Trio in concert, I highly recommend them. They have an excellent blend and a great future in southern gospel. I can also say without bias that Brian holds down a rock solid baritone!
Admission is free, love offering will be taken. Call Brian at 734-626-0376, or visit http://www.sammonsmusic.com for more info. If you’re a Michigander who loves good old-fashioned gospel singing, check your calendar and check it out.
