I am excited about this years event especially with the talent that we have, Hullender said. To get this type of talent and for them to donate their time is an incredible gift.
An Evening of Gold, a gospel concert to benefit Stockings Full of Love program, is Friday, Dec. 5 at 7 p.m. at Ti-ger Creek Elementary School, 134 Rhea McClanahan Drive near U.S. Highway 41 and Georgia Highway 2 south of Ringgold, Ga.
The event will feature Parrack winner of two time Singing News Awards Favorite Tenor singer.
Parrack is originally from Smackover, Arkansas and is the son of a tenor singer. His desire to do the same was realized when he accepted the tenor position with the Gold City Quartet of Gadsden, Ala. He remained with the group for a little longer than 10 years. He and his wife, Keri, have two children, Kaylyn and L.J. He serves as Minis-ter of Music for Hill Crest Baptist Church of Anniston, Ala.
Also participating is Wilburn, a five-time Singing News Awards Favorite Lead singer, who also traveled with the Gold City Quartet for more than 10 years. His musical heritage descends from the time he spent performing with his parents as Jackie and Elaine.
Hullender, who played bass with Gold City Quartet, will appear with his family including his children Justin, 20, who sings baritone and plays guitar, and Emily, 15, who sings soprano or tenor.
He added he is pleased to have Pipeline, a quartet from Peavine Baptist Church, as part of the lineup.
Gene Lowery is a constant in our community and is always willing to help out in benefit, he said.
The group features Judge Lowery singing lead, Tim Cooper on baritone, Eddie Cooper with the tenor, and Eric Edwards on bass.
We want to encourage everybody to come out and support this event that helps so many families in our commu-nity, Lowery said. With Jay Parrack and Jonathan Wilburn, nobody could ask for a better evening of gospel mu-sic.
Admission is an unwrapped toy and $5, or $10 without a toy.
