Coomer Cove notes an interesting discovery occuring during his search for LordSong concert dates. He came across a website for a group called Sisters, which appears to be LordSong without Michael Lord. They currently have more concert dates listed than LordSong. (LordSong only has two multi-day private events listed currently.)

They have released an album, and the sound clips seem to indicate that it’s a mixture of progressive tracks and more traditional Ruppes numbers. [EDIT, 2/22/13: Broken link removed.]

Up to this point, if you wanted to send written correspondence or mail review copies of a CD to, you had to email for a street address. This is about to change, however; I set up a P.O. Box to cover blog correspondence: P.O. Box 5271, Mansfield, OH 44901.

GVB to appear at Southern Baptist Convention

The Southern Baptist Convention Annual Meeting is being held this week in Indianapolis, Indiana. That last detail could shed some light on what would otherwise be a slightly surprising item in the schedule: In this morning’s opening session, from 9:05-9:15 AM, the Gaither Vocal Band will be doing a music feature.

What makes this slightly surprising is that at least the Gaither part of the Gaither Vocal Band isn’t Southern Baptist. (I believe his church affiliation is with the Church of God (Anderson). But perhaps it is due to the local connection, as Gaither is unquestionably one of the best-known artists in any genre of Christian music based in Central Indiana.

A link to watch live streaming video of conference proceedings is available on the conference’s main page. [EDIT, 11/8/10: The link appears to be down, and has been removed.] So if you want to catch their appearance, tune in at 9:05 AM EST this morning.

Update (6/11/08, 9:28 AM): Here is the video. [EDIT, 11/8/10: The link appears to be down, and has been removed.] Interestingly, in the onscreen identification, they’re listed as “Gaither Vocal Band – Contemporary Christian Artists.”

Christian and Sophia Davis’s baby recovering

Over the weekend, Diana Brantley and Donna Hefner mentioned on the Singing News forums that Christian and Sophia Davis’s baby Anneliese Grace had stopped breathing twice and was hospitalized with what they were afraid was a serious viral infaction. (Christian Davis sang bass with the Old Time Gospel Hour Quartet and Mercy’s Mark, and also recently released a solo CD.)

The Davises just sent me this update and picture to pass along.

We gave birth to our precious little girl on Monday morning June 2, 2008 at 3:30 am.  Anneliese Grace weighed in at 6 lbs 5 oz and a length of 19 1/4 inches.
On Friday, June 6, 2008 Anneliese was admitted to the hospital due to breathing issues.  She has been thru several tests and has been found to have developed pneumonia and is being treated aggressively with antibiotics.  Today we had another X-ray to compare to the one taken on Friday and it is now showing clear…. Praise God !  We are not sure when we are getting to come home, however with all the prayers that have been going up we have come from a once grave diagnosis of ” possible viral infection” to a treatable “bacterial infection” two days later.  We know it is the Grace of God and the healing power of prayer that has seen us thru.  We are not sure when we are getting to come home…possibly having to spend 14 days in the hospital so she can take her antibiotics thru her IV.  Please continue to pray for Anneliese, Mommy and Daddy.
