Multi-Grammy award-winning recording artist Bill Gaither will host the “Something Good Is About To Happen” tour of nearly two dozen cities in spring 2022 as he brings his multi-award-winning band, The Gaither Vocal Band to a dozen states in the first five months of 2022. Frazer Church in Montgomery, Alabama, will be among the stops on Saturday, April 2 at 6 p.m.
For half a century, the multiple Grammy and Dove award winner has been a music trailblazer. Gaither’s reputation as a performer, songwriter and mentor to newly discovered artists is known around the world. His beloved Homecoming series of CDs and DVDs continues to top sales and attract ever-growing audiences.
“Now more than ever, people need encouragement,” says the Gospel Music Hall of Famer and Songwriter of the Century. “I love leading an audience through an evening that leaves them feeling inspired, encouraged, hopeful – perhaps introducing them to songs or ideas they can hold on to when life gets tough,” Gaither shares. “It’s always my goal that a Gaither concert lasts much longer than a party, but stays with people long after they walk through the door of the concert hall. They need be edified, and I think our evenings do.
Taking to the stage in 2022 with Gaither and the Gaither Vocal Band, featuring Wes Hampton, Adam Crabb, Todd Suttles and Reggie Smith, will be popular singer, Ladye Love Smith and talented male vocalist, Gene McDonald, along with the musical entourage of Gaither, consisting of Kevin Williams, Matthew Holt and Greg Ritchie.
The Spring 2022 tour provides an opportunity for Gaither to introduce new music to concertgoers with the release of Gaither Vocal Band’s new recording, That’s Gospel Brother, which was released earlier this fall.
“There is something on this recording for everyone. We have some new songs recorded never before, and we’ve added a new twist to other songs that were written years ago but are still prevalent today,” says Gaither.
One of these songs is “Something Good Is About To Happen”, the namesake of the tour. While the song was written in 1974, it remains most compelling today, nearly 50 years later.
“Gloria (Gaither’s wife and co-writer of nearly 60 years) and I were fed up with what we were reading in the papers and seeing on the news,” Gaither shares. “Quite honestly, things are the same today, but the good news for God’s child is what it has always been. As the song goes, ‘when God’s people humble themselves and call on Jesus , and he looks expectantly up at the sky as he prays; I just feel like something good is about to happen. And brother, it could be that day. It is a message of encouragement.
