Blackwood Legacy to perform free concert at Mountain View

Kay Vasilakis

Mountain View Church strives to be an active part of the community, allowing agencies and organizations to meet at their facility. It also provides space for special events.The Tennessee-based “Blackwood Legacy” men’s gospel group, featuring former Blackwood Brothers Quartet lead singer and Gospel Music Hall of Fame Inductee Rick Price, will perform at 7 p.m. July 20, at the Mountain View Church of Glenwood. Admission is free, and a love offering will be received. During the Great Depression, the Blackwood Brothers were at the height of their fame, singing gospel classics and spiritual standards. The vocal group won nine Grammy awards and 27 Dove awards over its career and was inducted into both the Gospel Music and Grammy Hall of Fame. As the original Blackwood Brothers retired, various singers came in to take their place, including Rick Price. Eventually the original group was formally dissolved, and Price gathered new members to create the “Legacy,” a tribute to the Blackwood Brothers. Joining Price is Perry Jones, one of the most talented and versatile young singers on the Gospel Music scene today. Jones toured with the well-known contemporary group Mercy Me, of “I Can Only Imagine” fame. His experience also includes work with Audio Adrenaline, Michael W. Smith, and Building 429, among other popular groups.While they maintain the style that made the Blackwood Brothers famous, performing favorites such as “How Great Thou Art” and “Beulah Land,” they have also incorporated a contemporary sound that reaches old and young alike.Mountain View Church is located next to Buffalo Valley Restaurant, 1.5 miles south of Glenwood Springs on Highway 82. For more information on this event, contact the church at 945-8328. Kay Vasilakis’ “Nonprofit Spotlight” appears every other Wednesday. Kay is the media coordinator for the Garfield County Human Services Commission. To contact her, e-mail or call 945-8515, ext. 513.
