Multi Grammy-winning Gaither Vocal Band headlines Texas Homecoming this weekend at Verizon Theatre - good seats still available
The elaborate Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie will host the 2018 Texas Homecoming Friday and Saturday, as multi-Grammy-winning, Bill Gaither and his prestigious Gaither Vocal Band headline a weekend filled with music, laughter and encouragement.
The Gaither Vocal Band will share timeless Gospel classics, as well as refreshing, inspiring new favorites that have been embraced by audiences of all ages and backgrounds. Few events have the ability to unite individuals from all walks of life the way Gaither concerts do.
“The longer I live, the more I learn to appreciate the here and now - this moment - this place in life - this group of people with whom I am privileged to collaborate,” says GVB founder and bass singer, Bill Gaither.
Year after year, Gaither has brought the Homecoming Tour into cities worldwide. Each concert showcases Gospel music’s finest talent and draws new listeners in every city. Joining The Gaither Vocal Band at the 2018 Texas Homecoming in Grand Prairie will be Mark Lowry, a former GVB alum, who has become known as one of the countries most popular comedians and vocalists. Lowry is best known for penning the Christmas classic, “Mary Did You Know.” His unique gift of communicating profound truths through music, humor and story-telling has been entertaining audiences for decades. Lowry’s “Mary Did You Know” co-author, Buddy Greene, will also be featured at this year’s Texas Homecoming. Lowry will be featured during Saturday’s concert, while Greene will be featured both days.
Also featured both days will be multi-Grammy nominated vocal group, The Martins, as well as Gospel Music Hall of Fame members, The Nelons, guitarist and comedian, Kevin Williams, popular female vocalists, Angie Primm and Charlotte Ritchie, as well as powerful male vocalist, Gene McDonald.
Other popular and talented recording artists scheduled to appear throughout the two days will be Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, Lynda Randle and Goodman Revival. Friday’s event will begin at 7 p.m., while Saturday’s matinee will begin at 1 p.m.
This two-day music extravaganza will be hosted by ASCAP’s Songwriters of the Century, Bill and Gloria Gaither. Having written more than 700 popular gospel songs throughout their multi-decade career, including favorite standards “He Touched Me,” Because He Lives,” and “There’s Something About That Name,” the Gaithers continue to delight audiences nationwide with songs and music that have become legendary.
“I’ve always said it all starts with a great song,” Gaither said, “and we are fortunate that each concert includes great songs that have stood the test of time. With all the musical choices that are available now, there is still a special place for the joy and optimism that reside in Gospel music. Good news never gets old.”
That “good news” will be proclaimed loudly at the Verizon Theatre Friday night and Saturday afternoon.
