From the Talleys email newsletter January 3, 2013
Lots of exciting things are happening for our family, and we hope your year is off to a great start as well!
We were honored to be the hosts of “A First Family Christmas” last month at First Baptist Atlanta. We hosted four shows and sang a short set in each one. I also performed solo with the FBA choir in both Sunday morning services. It’s always a privilege to be with Dr. Charles Stanley and he was kind and gracious as always. He presented us with beautiful gift books while we were there and autographed them for us. Christmas came early!
My husband, Brian Alvey, has been attending college this past fall and is now going to be working full-time in the financial industry with Western and Southern Life providing insurance, investment and annuities services. We will miss him singing with us but we are excited about the new opportunity God has given him. He remains very supportive of his wife’s ministry, which I’m thankful for! Brian still writes music and records, so you will still enjoy his talents from time to time. Our latest single, “Make Way For the Master,” is one of Brian’s compositions and features him. If you haven’t heard it yet….just get ready, because it’s one of the greatest songs we’ve ever recorded.
I am excited to announce the release of my first book, God Moments In An Ordinary Life. For over twenty five years, I have been writing about the unexpected moments in my life that God uses to teach me more about Himself. This book is a compilation of these writings. The book will be available March 1, 2013 on our website. You can preorder through the website store starting January 7, 2013. The cost will be $15 plus S&H. I hope this book will be a blessing and a challenge to all who read it to find the God moments in your ordinary days.
In the spring, we will release a new double CD titled “The Ultimate Collection”. It is a compilation of the 30 most requested songs that we have ever recorded, and it includes several of the most popular songs recorded by the original Talleys, such as Triumphantly The Church Will Rise, He Is Here, Hallelujah Praise The Lamb, and Thinking About Home, etc. Be watching for the release of this CD.
Abraham Productions has announced the schedule for their 2013 events. Singing In The Sun in Myrtle Beach will be April 16-20. Gatlinburg Gathering will now be held July 3-6 at the Gatlinburg Convention Center. In October we will be joining other Abraham Productions artists in a tribute to Claude and Connie Hopper in Greensboro, NC.
The Talleys are thrilled to announce our next cruise for Nov 2-9 2013. We had so many people ask for another cruise from Charleston so we will depart Charleston, SC with stops in Nassau, Bahamas, Half Moon Cay, and Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos. This 7 night cruise will feature daily concerts by The Talleys, The Hoppers, Karen Peck and New River, Ivan Parker, The Whisnants, Jeff and Sheri Easter, and Tribute Qt. We are almost ready to put the cabins on sale to the general public but, we want to let you who have expressed an interest to have first choice at cabins before they start selling out.
Inside cabins start at only $849/person and Ocean view cabins start at $999/person. To reserve your spot, call Aladdin Travel 336 499-6708. Be sure to tell them that you want to register with The Talleys!
Check out the dates below and join us for a great evening of Gospel Music when we are in driving distance.
We would love to see you.
Until next time, God bless you all and we’ll see you on the road very soon!
