Graceland Gospel Music Festival – Encore Edition
Things don’t always go as planned—and sometimes, that’s a good thing!
In November 2021, Singing News presented The Graceland Gospel Music Festival at the Memphis, Tennessee, home of Elvis Presley. People from across the United States gathered at The Soundstage At Graceland to hear several of Southern Gospel music’s leading artists during three incredible evenings of music that were also broadcast on SingingNews TV. Not only were longtime Gospel music fans entertained and ministered to, but many people who were hearing Southern Gospel music for the first time were in attendance.
“It was a great event,” says Singing News President Ray Flynn. “However, our plan was to present The Graceland Gospel Music Festival only once. To be able to present Southern Gospel music at such an iconic location was something we felt sure would be difficult, if not impossible, to repeat.
“However,” continues Flynn, “we did not expect such an overwhelming response to the event from attendees, streaming viewers, artists, and the management and staff of Graceland. We were both surprised and humbled when Graceland executives asked us to consider an encore concert this year.
“Therefore, after careful consideration and prayer, we are pleased to announce that Singing News will present The Graceland Gospel Music Festival—Encore Edition 2022 November 2-4.”
Fifteen artists are slated to appear during the three-day event, offering a wide array of Southern Gospel music stylings. Performing will be The Hoppers, The Inspirations, Jeff & Sheri Easter, The Guardians, Karen Peck & New River, The Kingsmen, The Martins, Joseph Habedank, The Triumphant Quartet, Brian Free & Assurance, Carolina The Band, Truesong, Josh & Ashley Franks, and Emily Ann Roberts. Concerts will take place once again at The Soundstage At Graceland, with all concerts beginning at 7 p.m.
Tickets for The Graceland Gospel Music Festival—Encore Edition 2022 will go on sale August 23. For tickets and additional information, visit singingnews.com or call (877) 777-0606.
“Some things may not always go as planned,” adds Flynn. “But we’re thankful that God has allowed us this opportunity. Come join us in Memphis, Tennessee, and be a part of history—again!”
