Three days of the best in Southern Gospel Music comes to Pigeon Forge this November 3-6. The convention will take place in Sevier County, one of the most beautiful settings that the Smoky Mountains has to offer.
Scheduled artists to appear:
Getting her start in the Dallas Ft. Worth area at a young age, Ava Kasich parlayed her lifelong experience into a career as a featured and background vocalist for Wally Flower. She’s worked with various high-profile acts within the gospel music industry and opened for groups such as Karen Peck and New River and the Hemphills.
From that point forward, she’s released multiple studio albums, winning two Beacon Awards in 2012–one for Soloist of the Year and the other for “Song of the Year.” (Stones)
Hailing from a musical family, Tina Wakefield is a vocalist, pianist, and Music Minister at Amazing Grace Worship Center in Alabaster, AL. She charted various songs on the Singing News Charts and also speaks at Women’s Conferences across the United States.
Composed of husband and wife team, Thom and Melody Stephen, and including Melody’s Sister Bethany Dunnam, the Stephens have some of the most outstanding voices in southern gospel music. Melody’s voice has earned her several Dove Award nominations.
