ALEXIS––Local gospel favorites the Faithful Voices have two big concerts coming up on Oct. 18.
According to group spokesman and noted tenor Sam Hovis, the Voices will perform that Sunday at 10 a.m. at Mt. Zion Baptist Church, located at 2151 Mt. Zion Church Road in Alexis. And later that evening at 6 p.m., they’ll perform at Alexis Baptist Church, located at 215 Alexis-High Shoals Road, also in Alexis.
The Voices are available to sing for any church-related occasions, such as regular services (morning or evening), homecomings and fifth Sunday night singings, as Hovis informed.
“We also love singing for senior citizens’ events,” he said. “We don’t charge to sing, because we love singing for our great God.”

Did you know?
The history of gospel music dates back several centuries.
According to researchers at the University of Southern California, it is deeply connected with the call-and-response musical styles of African slaves brought to the Americas in the early 1600’s.
It can be quite diverse. Gospel music can range from Christian hymns and spirituals to black gospel, Southern gospel, country gospel and bluegrass gospel. And today, according to the BBC, gospel music in all its forms is popular and appreciated throughout the English-speaking world.
