The Parish Family, a multi-award winning Christian Country Gospel trio from Southwest Georgia is planning to present a gospel concert in support of hurricane relief efforts throughout Seminole County. The concert will be held at the Donalsonville Church of God on Saturday, April 13 beginning at 7 p.m. The Parish Family is retiring as a group and Kesha will begin pursuing a solo career in Christian country/country gospel music.
Kesha commented, “We will do a ‘Farewell Concert’ to announce the group retirement and we will be donating $5.00 for every CD sold to the community’s BetterWay Initiative and its hurricane recovery efforts in Seminole County.”
Joining Parish in the benefit performance will be local singing trio Lisa Adams, Melisa Adams, and Olivia Adams Buckhalter, the trio of Tondra Rich, Renea Pierce and Phillip Kirkland, and soloists Madison Lomineck, and Kim Newberry.
A silent auction featuring delicious homemade cakes, and decorative and homemade crafts will also be held the night of the benefit performance.
The Parish Family Music Ministry has reached millions of souls all over the world as cast members on three different global network television shows: Brush Arbor Jubilee with Bill Traylor and Bob Jones as hosts, Great American Gospel with Ed O’Neal, and American Gospel Onstage with Mike LeFevre. The group has been blessed with five number one songs since 2010 and has accumulated multiple awards in Christian Country Music. The group has also recorded two singles with Grammy-award winning artist Marty Raybon, lead vocalist of main-stream Country group, Shenandoah.
Kesha is the daughter of Jackie Williams Alday and the late Coleman Brimlow of Donalsonville, and Ronnie and Mark are the sons of the late Rev. B.H. Parish and Mrs. Nettie Ruth of Parish of Bainbridge.
