From EHSS email newsletter October 24, 2012:
Hello Friends of EHSS:
Well this was the first official EHSS weekend for our new bass singer Paul Harkey.
Four shows, one of which was a Gaither Homecoming Concert, was quite a way to start his tenure. We were so encouraged by the people's welcoming spirit towards Paul, and we sincerely appreciate everyone's support.
Getting to know Paul has been great. He has a soothing, calm way about him...like a big ole teddy bear! Each night after the concerts its so touching to see him on his cell phone smiling from ear to ear, with tears in his eyes as he shares with his wife all the happenings of the day.
We praise the Lord for providing us with what we need. Just one more reason to trust Him more, and thats "Reason Enough" for me!
Please come out to see and hear why we are all so excited! Here's where we'll be for the next few weeks ...

Yep, I know a little early, but that is what I have been doing this year. I’ve been getting things done early, even if I don’t do it quite right. Case in point: I have already bought all my Christmas presents and started wrapping them. I got half of them wrapped and realized I used the wrong wrapping paper!
The paper doesn’t say “Merry Christmas” … it says, “Happy Birthday!” I didn’t let that get me down; I just took a Sharpie® out and wrote “Jesus” at the end on each one. :)
It may be early, but I want you to plan in advance to share an evening with EHSS on one of our 2012 Christmas tour dates. All of these dates are going to be fun and full of holiday cheer and YES, we will celebrate the birth of our Savior ... on purpose.
Let me draw your attention to one special weekend.
December 14th and 15th will be very special for me. My Alma Mater, Castle High School in Newburgh, Indiana, is hosting not one but TWO EHSS Christmas shows. I have not been able to sing in my high school since I left in 1983. This will be a special time to reconnect with friends and family. The Castle High Choir and Show Choir will also join us. That’s right! The very same show choir that I learned all my moves from back in the day.
I cannot tell you how pumped I am about this weekend! I’d love to have you come and spend the weekend in historic Newburgh, Indiana. The riverfront is just minutes from the venue and there are plenty of boutiques, shopping and fine eating establishments.
So, make your plans early! To purchase your tickets, go to one, or both of the following links
December 14th Concert
December 15th Concert
To purchase tickets for either of these concerts by phone please call (800) 965-9324.

And while we are talking Christmas…
I also wanted to share with you some great news about our StowTown Records artist The Collingsworth Family. They have a brand new CD and DVD out called Feels Like Christmas.
This project is out-of-this-world good! And I’m proud to say our partners at Provident / Sony have just informed us that both Lifeway Christian Stores and Family Christian Stores have just added Feels Like Christmas to their shelves this week.
Please go out and support The Collingsworth Family, StowTown Records & Christian retail stores. It’s people like you that keep these quality establishments spreading the Gospel.
In closing, here is a little video clip of the making of Feels Like Christmas. Click here to view! ENJOY! ...
