This is a special announcement from some “forum friends” at the Singing News forums.
It was suggested that we start a separate thread dedicated to news about the Big Jim Hamill Memorial Concert scheduled for Friday, January 25, 2008 at The Open Bible Tabernacle in Marietta, GA. So, for those who aren’t familiar with what’s going on, here’s the scoop.
The day before our beloved friend, Hamill passed away, it was brought to my attention that he and his family were having financial difficulties, and that “someone” needed to do something. I felt led to organize a benefit concert. In a very short time, I had the backing of several top groups, and a few friends who have always been inspired by Hamill. When I got the news of Hamill’s passing, I decided that we could still help the family, but that we’d call it a “Memorial” concert.
Although several groups agreed to participate, if we could get a venue and settle on a common date, I must now confirm the date with them, now that a date and venue have been secured.
This would be a great blessing to the Hamill family. It would be an honor if you could attend and/or help out with this event. For any questions, go to the Singing News forums and look for the thread with the same title as this post.
Thank you and God bless.
