Update: It’s no longer on the charts but what a feather in the cap of this singing trio.
The single, “Lighthouse” by The Greatest Gift debuted this week (second week of April, 2017) at the #1 spot on The Southern Gospel Times Weekly Top 40 chart.
Congrats to these musicians who played on it:
Drums/Percussion: Jim Riley, William Ellis
All Acoustic and Electric Guitars: Tom Wild
Keyboards: Steve King, Mike Biason
Violins: Jenee Fleenor
Horns: John Heinrick
Bass Guitar: Bill Watson
All music tracks on Lighthouse and the album it’s from, “Fishers of Men” were produced and arranged by Bill Watson of Nashville Trax.
The Greatest Gift career is taking off in other ways as well, recently just about sweeping the Christian category at the 2017 national NACMAI competition with multiple #1 awards.
When The Geatest Gift started making independent albums with Nashville Trax a few years they were performing at local churches. Fourty plus Nashville Trax produced songs comprising four albums later, they have a record deal, multiple TV appearances scheduled and will be touring the Southern U.S. starting this fall (of 2017).
Congrats to this fine and dedicated Christian vocal group!
