Gospel music legends Mark Lowry and The Martins are hitting the road together for the first time, according to a press release provided.
This concert event will come to Wabash April 26 at 7:30 p.m.
“It’s a lifelong dream,” said Lowry about touring with The Martins. “It’s going to be an exciting year, just getting to hear them sing every night.”
The history between Lowry and sibling trio Joyce, Jonathan and Judy Martin spans more than two decades and can be traced back to a cassette tape The Martins gave him at a national convention in 1992. Lowry and fellow Gaither vocal bandmate Michael English were so impressed, they insisted Gloria Gaither listen to an impromptu audition of the group, which they held in the women’s restroom. Gaither then told husband Bill and the rest is history as the Gaithers helped introduce The Martins to the world.
This musical evening will be April 26 at the Honeywell Center in Wabash. The evening begins at 7:30 p.m. Complete information may be obtained by visiting www.honeywellcenter.org or www.marklowry.com or www.martinsonline.com
Pianist Stan Whitmire also will accompany Mark and The Martins on tour, and according to Lowry, fans can expect a little of everything during this special evening.
“We’re going to mix it up. The Martins and I will be singing together. I’ll be kicking Jonathan out and singing with just the sisters on a couple songs. Whatever it takes to make the night a success, we’re going to do,” said Lowry.
