Recording artist Bill Gaither, who has received several Grammy Awards, will present the spectacular music game Gaither Christmas Homecoming on Saturday at the Mabee Center in Tulsa.
The legendary recording artist will present an exciting festival of the best of Christian music, including Gaither’s own multi-award-winning group, The Gaither Vocal Band. This special event starts at 6:00 p.m.
The Gaither Vocal Band with Gaither, Wes Hampton, Adam Crabb, Todd Suttles and Reggie Smith will be accompanied by several talented musical guests on this special evening. Throughout the evening, these talented artists will be sharing timeless gospel classics as well as refreshing, inspiring new favorites that will be embraced by audiences of all ages and backgrounds, as well as classic Christmas standards that are guaranteed to keep the Christmas spirit going. Few events have the ability to unite people from all walks of life like Gaither concerts. “The longer I live, the more I learn to appreciate the here and now – this moment – this place in life – this group of people I am allowed to work with,” explains the founder and bassist of the Gaither Vocal Band, Bill Gaither.
Year after year, Gaither has brought the Homecoming Tour and the spectacular Christmas music to cities around the world. Every concert shows the best talent in gospel music and attracts new listeners in every city. Gaither continues to enjoy the audience response to the concerts, now more than 40 years after quitting his job as a teacher: “I have always said that everything starts with a great song, and we are fortunate that each Concert features great songs that have stood the test of time. With all the musical options now available, there is still a special place for the joy and optimism that resides in gospel music. Good news never gets old. “
Bill and Gloria Gaither, who were named ASCAP’s Songwriters of the Century, have written more than 700 popular gospel songs in their more than ten-year career, including the favorite standards “He Touched Me”, “Because He Lives” and “There Only Is something about this name ”. Since 1992, when Gaither began recording the famous Homecoming series of DVDs and CDs, almost every volume has been awarded gold or platinum and achieved sales of around 100 million volumes. The programs appear regularly on television channels around the world.
The talented “friends” who take the stage with Gaither and the Gaither Vocal Band include Mark Lowry, the Nelons, Lynda Randle, Charlotte Ritchie, Gene McDonald and Kevin Williams. Many classic Christmas favorites will be on display on this festive evening so all visitors can experience the real reason for the Christmas season.
