JUBILEE CHRISTMAS DVD
This stellar concert performance of Christmas favorites from the "Jubilee Gang" features the
signature vocal blends that have made this unique combination of groups something even greater
than the sum of its parts. The "Jubilee Gang" combines the Booth Brothers, Greater Vision and
Legacy Five. This recording brings these top Southern Gospel talent together on the stage of
Trinity Music City in Hendersonville, Tennessee. Emceed by Gerald Wolfe, the groups sing a
spectacular list of Christmas favorites and new holiday songs, putting together almost two hours
of the finest live performances this Christmas season.
The a cappella "Carol Of The Bells" features a beautiful vocal arrangement that highlights the
top-tier vocal talent of these three groups. This classic has never sounded better than as the
Jubilee Gang perform it. The album also closes with another a capella song, the tender "The
Benediction (Closing Prayer)." On the other end of the spectrum, the instrumental rendition of
"O Little Town Of Bethlehem," from Legacy Five's Trey Ivey, is a beautiful piece that highlights
his mastery of the piano.
This live performance brings a number of unique renditions that really stand out. "Celebrating
Jesus" features resident "crooner" Ronnie Booth in what sounds like an old-fashioned Elvis-style
"doo-wop" song with a great Christian message. The song is captivating on several levels and
may become a new Christmas classic. Meanwhile, the humorous "Our Twelve Days Of
Christmas" offers the Jubilee Gang's... "interesting" take on the Christmas standard. It's a
singular rendition you don't want to miss. To say more would spoil the surprise!
Along with the wonderful singing, the stage presence and presentation that these singers bring to
this live concert make this recording special. Each of the singers give a brief Christmas story
during the concert, relating some of their favorite Christmas memories. And, of course, the
regular good-natured hijinks of the gang will add mirth to even the coldest winter evening.
This nearly two-hour live concert is truly a wonderful holiday production. To have three favorite
Southern Gospel groups come together to perform some of the best songs of Christmas cheer is a
delight. Make your Christmas season bright with the Booth Brothers, Greater Vision and Legacy
Five. Once you see and hear the remarkable performances on this DVD, you'll want to make this
holiday a "Jubilee Christmas!"
