Greensboro, NC & Myrtle Beach, SC

The Isaacs rocked the Carolinas this past weekend. The weekend began on Friday night in Greensboro, NC at the Tabernacle United Methodist Church. There was a packed house. Even the balcony was filled. The sound was awesome. The Isaacs introduced their new songs from "Naturally" to the folks and I think they enjoyed it. Sonya's fiance Jimmy was on the bus this weekend and Sonya called him up to sing. They harmonized beautifully on "Beulah Land" and the Shenandoah song "Mama Knows".

Early Friday morning I made my way to Myrtle Beach, SC where the annual Gaither Fest was taking place. The Myrtle Beach convention Center was all set up for the weekend event. I made it in time to hear the Isaacs sound check and to visit a little bit before it was time to check in to my room and get ready for the evening.

We had a lot of help at the product table for the weekend. Thanks to Debbie & Bill Becker, Sherry & Jennifer Thurmond, Gina and Randy Black and Shelly Jones for all your help.

It was great to see friends from Norway in attendance again. On Saturday morning after the morning concert was over the Norway group met in the lobby near The Isaacs product table and the Isaacs family stepped over to greet them personally. They even serenaded the group in Norwegian voice. They are planning a Norway trip again next year in June. The group was very excited to hear this.

The Isaacs performed Friday night, Saturday morning and Saturday evening. They did mostly new songs from the Naturally CD and some older favorites like "Walk On" and "It is Well with my Soul". The Saturday morning service was really special and touching with Gloria Gaither as the speaker. It was a great weekend. If you haven't attended the Myrtle Beach Gaither Fest you should make plans now to attend next year. Tickets are now on sale for the 2010 Gaither Fest. To be held October 8th & 9th, 2010.
