Gospel Nite with Lillie Knauls (10/20)

A popular phrase, "A good time was had by all" truly sums up the evening! Lots of fun, laughter, sharing, congregational hymn singing, quartet and soulful gospel music. Linda Nuzum shared a solo from her CD and Brotherhood sang a few songs between Lillie's sets including an uptempo "Nothing But The Blood".

Even as a "senior lady", Ms. Lillie Knauls still looks and sounds great - a broad smiling face and full of the joy of the Lord! Throughout the night, she encouraged the congregation to join in singing such favorites as "He's Got The Whole World In His Hands", "His Eye Is On The Sparrow" and her signature song, "O Happy Day". Currently known as part of Gaither's Homecoming group, Lillie was also a member of the Edwin Hawkins Singers who made that last song a mainstream hit in 1969.

Brotherhood was priviledged to join Ms. Knauls singing "Walkin' On Dry Land", a song she penned awhile back but with a country twist. It's included on her current album which won a Dove Award. If you get the chance, don't miss out seeing Lillie Knauls in concert. You will be thrilled and blessed... we sure were! If all goes well, concert photos will follow.
