GREENVILLE — The Cancer Association of Darke County will hold their annual Gospel Sing on November 6 at St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville at 3 p.m.
Fair Haven Quartet and Everett Gates along with several others will be sharing their message in song during that time, said Executive Director Christine Lynn.
“The Fair Haven Quartet is one of the most dedicated, sincere and exciting quartets in gospel music today. Since the beginning of their music ministry in 2004 the quartet has traveled extensively to churches throughout Kentucky, Tennessee and Ohio and established themselves as one of the premier gospel quartets in southeast Kentucky.”
“Their recordings feature a blend of original songs and fresh arrangements to traditional hymns and gospel classics. The tight harmony and dynamic, convention-style sound is both refreshing and uplifting.”
Everett Gates was born and raised in Darke County Ohio, a song writer starting in high school, songs that competed with groups like the Beach Boys, Dick Dale and the Del Tones.
“Mean Machine” was his first song and then a song “ I Loved and Lost.” He was a high school basketball coach at Mississinawa Valley and also coached at Daleville, Indiana, where he became friends with the family of Joey Feek.
Feek was a Gospel singer in the singing country duo of Rory and Joey Feek. When Gates found out she was in fourth stage cancer he wrote a song for her called “He Made You.” He will perform this song at the Gospel Sing. Feek passed away March 4.
Admission is free with a freewill offering. Refreshments will be served along with a bake sale.
The public is invited.
Proceeds will go to help local cancer patients.
