Ball Brothers - Brian Free and Assurance. Gospel Music Concert Two well know Gospel Music Quartets - Ball Brothers, and Brian Free and Assurance will be singing at Christian Church Family Life Center Friday August 26. Ball Brothers were intro- duced to thousands of Gospel Music fans at sold out events all across America on the Emie Haase and Signature Sound Summer Tour. In addi- tion to the great success of that summer tour, in 2007 the Ball Brothers made a special guest appearance on EHSS certi- fied gold selling DVD "Get Away Gordon" plus guest appearances on the extremely popular Gaither Homecom- they have entertained and blessed us with their "Mt. Pulaski on Vinegar Hill Christmas Concerts". Brian Free and Assurance is very recognized in south- ern gospel music. In 1982 in joined the Gold City Quartet, and then moved on to form his own group. Southern Gospel music has always been his first love, and fans have responded to his music by honoring him with such awards as Favorite Male Singer, Favorite Album, and most recently received a Dove ," : ing Video Series. In 2011 the Award for Southern Gospel Ball Brothers were nominated Recorded Song, "Long As I for the Horizon Group of the year and made it into the top five for the fourth consecutive year. The Southern Gospel News nominated their project "Breakthrough" for album of the year. This year they have a new CD titled "Recharged". They have performed concerts in three different countries - the latest being a 10 day Concert tour in Ireland this summer where they were privileged to sing in the government's Parlia- ment Building something that probably and sadly couldn't have happen here in America. Also, for the past three years, Got King Jesus." While the guys from both of these groups come from different backgrounds, they all agree on one thing, and that is to use their God-given abilities to take the message of Jesus Christ to everyone they can.
