SGMA Benefit Concert (Cumming, GA)

SGMA Benefit Concert (Cumming, GA)

I was able to attend an SGMA benefit concert held at the North Lanier Baptist Church in Cumming, Georgia on Thursday night. Travis Bridgeman is the pastor of a smaller baptist church in the city and he spearheads this event.  He got quite a number of sponsors and lined up Melvin Klaudt, the LeFevre Quartet and Troy and Tammy Burns to join in the event.  I don’t know how many folks attended nor how much money was raised, but I do know that I enjoyed it immensely.   A special bonus for us was a FaceTime chat with SGMA president Arthur Rice where he announced the 2017 class of Hall of Fame inductees:  Randy Dale Shelnut, Sr., Troy Burns, Tony Greene and LaBreeska Hemphill!

Here’s a little compilation of some of the songs that were sung last night:
