Gospel Music legend Bill Gaither to perform in Jacksonville


Multi-Grammy Award winning recording artist Bill Gaither will present the Brighter The Light Tour to 20 cities this spring, bringing The Gaither Vocal Band to a dozen states throughout February, March, April and May. One of those stops will take place Feb. 10 at the Westside Baptist Church, 7775 Herlong Road, Jacksonville. 

For nearly half a century, Gaither has been a musical trailblazer. His reputation as a performer, songwriter and mentor for newly discovered artists is known worldwide.

Taking the stage with Gaither and the Gaither Vocal Band, featuring Wes Hampton, Adam Crabb, Todd Suttles and Reggie Smith, will be popular female vocalist Ladye Love Smith and talented male vocalist Gene McDonald, as well as Gaither’s musical entourage, comprised of Kevin Williams, Matthew Holt and Michael Rowsey.

The tour affords Gaither the opportunity continue to share the message he has been proclaiming for more than six decades.

“You know this world has never been very stable,” Gaither said, “and according to God’s Word, it’s not going to be stable. We are called to be God’s people in the midst of an unstable culture. So the question is, how do we live out the power of love and grace? Do we really believe that love is the most powerful force on earth? Can we trust that the darker the night, the brighter the light? Our call is just simply to shine. The little song we learned in Sunday School was so, so true. This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine. I believe that message can change the world. The darker the night, the brighter the light.”
