The Williamsons To Perform At The Great Passion Play
Darin Hebert, popular bass singer for The Williamsons, said, “We are humbled to be asked to participate at such a great event. Great things have been happening in Eureka Springs and The Williamsons are excited to be a part.”
Manager of the group, Donnie Williamson shared that in mid-December 2012 he received a call informing him that The Great Passion Play was going in to foreclosure on January 1. The Williamsons joined forces with The Gospel Station of Ada, Oklahoma and several business leaders and other concerned individuals in the Eureka Springs area and they raised $75,000.00 about three weeks. This was enough to satisfy creditors and hold off the foreclosure. 2013 proved to be the best season the park had seen in years. Attendance grew last season by at least 30% and even greater things are expected for 2014.
The park also plans to expose visitors to even more Gospel music in 2014 with their first major concert promotion on June 21 and 22. The Williamsons will be performing there again with other talented artist such at The Freemans, The Nelons, and Red Roots.

About The Williamsons
The Williamsons began sharing the Gospel through music in 1998 as The Homesteaders Quartet. The dream of Donnie Williamson was to form a group to sing classic Gospel music on a limited basis. What he wanted to do never occurred. From the group's onset their demand was overwhelming. Soon they were performing more than 100 dates a year. For the past several years The Williamsons have been in full time Christian ministry and entertainment and have traveled across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Their music has been in national charts and were they honored to be nominated to the Gospel Music Association for a Dove Award.
Their high energy musical style appeals to people of all ages. The versatility of The Williamsons is evident through the wide variety of musical styles they perform. There is always something for everyone. The marketing of their performances targets families and not just fans of any particular type of music. Spending an evening with The Williamsons is sure to be one that will lift you up, bless you, and entertain you all at the same time. Their primary desire is to share the Gospel in such a way that those in attendance who do not know Jesus Christ will come to know him before the program is over.
