Music has often been called ‘the universal language.’ Music speaks. Prophetic voices have embedded their messages in verses, choruses, rhymes and rhythms throughout the centuries. Musicians like Habakkuk and Isaiah of the Hebrew Scriptures, as well as Bob Dylan, Ani DiFranco and Bono on modern tracks, have conveyed to us the struggles and hopes of our world. First Baptist Greenville has a rich musical tradition. We are accustomed to hearing the wisdom and words of the artists among us and around us. The coming months will be no different. Here are a few voices you can look forward to hearing: Sunday, August 16 Kyshona Armstrong (with Ryan Madora)
Kyshona is a musical therapist and solo artist who gives her voice to those often silenced and forgotten. She is also a familiar voice during Fall for Greenville. Sunday, August 23 Kyle Matthews
Kyle’s voice is familiar, but never so familiar that the message is missed. Sunday, September 13 Darby Wilcox
Darby is one of Greenville’s most cherished singer-songwriters. Her honesty invites us to nod our heads and open our hearts to a greater level of understanding and healing. Sunday, October 25 Loretta Holloway
Loretta Holloway, South Carolina’s First Lady of Song, has performed for Queen Elizabeth of England and has opened shows for Whoopi Goldberg, Jay Leno, and more. She is a Las Vegas staple and a South Carolina treasure, but we just know her as our friend at First Baptist.
