The Starlite Theatre in Branson will be hosting the first ever “Branson Gospel Reunion,” a special two-day event starring the Blackwood Singers, who recently retuned to Branson after being gone 15 years, the cast of “Oh Happy Day: Goin’ Back to Gospel,” Gary Koreiba, Kim Boyce, Christian recording artist Allen Asbury, and Debra Paxton, as well as comedian and musician Paul Harris May 6 and 7.
The Blackwood Singers, currently starring in the “Blackwood’s Morning Show” at 10 a.m. at the Starlite Theatre, carry an 81-year, award-winning history as part of the famous Blackwood Brothers Quartet. They will be lending their trademark harmonies, humor and hope to their favorite gospel hits to this event.
Koreiba and Boyce, both well-known in Branson formerly with the “Pierce Arrow” show, have had highly successful careers in the gospel music field. Boyce, a former Miss Florida, has recorded eight Contemporary Christian albums, with 11 tunes reaching the No. 1 spot on Christian radio. Koreiba, a background vocalist for gospel performer Russ Taff’s “Medals” tour, also sang on the Gaither “Homecoming” video series before moving to Branson to be the lead singer at “Pierce Arrow.”
Allen Asbury has performed over 3,000 shows world wide as Simon Peter in the musical “The Promise,” and Paxton is a renowned background vocalist, as well as the daughter of rock ‘n roll and gospel legend, Gary S. Paxton.
Harris, who recently returned to Branson after a comedy tour, the popular “TBN Comedy Tour,” will be lending his own sense of humor to the show, including takes on his early life, becoming a new father and everything between.
