First show of the fall season this Friday!
From September through April, the Cowboy Gospel Jubilee is hosted by the Cleveland Cowboy Church. The ninth season of the Cowboy Gospel Jubilee is beginning on Friday. The Cowboy Jubilee offers live bluegrass, Southern gospel and country gospel music from bands, groups, and soloists for the enjoyment of the community.
Alabaster Voices, from Ooltewah, will perform at the season-opener at The Cowboy Gospel Jubilee Friday, 7 p.m.
“Alabaster Voices is a Southern gospel group made up of David Hill and his wife, Kristen, their youngest son, Aaron, and accomplished singer, Chris Wells,” said Joel Moore, producer of the weekly event. “Their style and harmony makes this a show you won’t want to miss,” Moore said.
David Hill was born in Alabama but moved with his family to Chattanooga as a child. Married to Kristen, who was born and raised in Ooltewah, they have six children, and the youngest, Aaron, sings with the group. David is a minister and received his pastoral ministries degree from Lee University He has served as children's pastor, youth pastor, minister of music, and facilities director. His love for music has put him in the position to lead choirs and ensembles at various churches over the years. Before fall 2017, when Alabaster Voices was born, David traveled with a local quartet sharing the message of Christ.
Chris Wells grew up in Virginia and spent many years traveling with quartets, both running their sound and filling in on vocals. He also served as music director at various churches, and eventually sang baritone with The Risen Son Quartet and tenor with The Lighthouse Quartet. Transferred to Chattanooga in 2013, he again became heavily involved in quartet music and also answered the call to preach. Now a co-founder of Alabaster Voices, Chris shares the message of God's love through song.
The Cowboy Gospel Jubilee is held at the Cleveland Cowboy Church in the Dockery Heights community at 3040 Blythe Road, off Dockery Lane, between Blue Springs and Blackburn Roads.
Admission is free and a love offering is taken for the headliners.
