Soul Lifters come up big at Sammys
Congratulations to the SHSU Soul Lifters Gospel Choir who was recognized as Overall Outstanding Organization and Outstanding Religious Organization at Wednesday night's Sammy Awards. The Soul Lifters have served churches and communities for 40 years and features some of the most beautiful voices I've ever heard.
Listen to them at a gospel retreat in 2008, singing "Holy, Holy, Holy."
I had older cousins who sang in the choir through the late 90s and early 00s. The Soul Lifters have always been popular in churches and most recently performing in the newly established Act One productions, such as "Tribute to Black Arts: Black Box Theater."
