A few weeks ago, I found my copy of the Torch DVD from 2005. The DVD was a showcase at the National Quartet Convention in 2005. It featured under 30 artists, Souther Gospel's next generation. It was fun to go back and watch all these young artists who have grown so much in the almost 10 years since the filming of the project. Most of the artists included are still involved in Southern Gospel music.
Some of the singers and musicians included - the Crabb family, Lauren Talley (Alvey), Joseph Habedank, Jeremy Lile, Jeremy Peace, Troy and Katy Peach, Scotty Inaman, the McRaes, Amber Nelon Thompson, Matthew Holt and Josh Singletary... just to name a few.
Here are a couple of clips from the DVD:
My thoughts for this Monday morning. If they were to have a similar showcase and DVD taping in 2015, what artists/ musicians should be included who are under 30?
Here are my suggestions, would love to hear yours!
