1 Gaither Vocal Band

For more than 50 years, the Gaither Vocal Band has been spreading the message into a Grammy-winning Gospel powerhouse.

Tonight, the group will be performing at United Wireless Arena with the show starting at 7 p.m. and doors opening at 6 p.m.

"Gospel is message driven and articulates ideas and that is what our writing shows," Gaither Vocal Band co-founder, Bill Gaither said recently. "We just love to do it. The fans that follow us for years give us our private time to enjoy our families and I like to call them fellow pilgrims instead of fans.

"We've written songs for kids to sing in church and I am encouraged to tell parents to tell kids how special they are and to be supportive of kids."
