Gaither Homecoming cancellation
From one of our farflung correspondents:
Total meltdown at Gaither.com over the cancellation of Jubil…whatever in Memphis. Just a total meltdown. The issue is that no one from Gaither announced this and folks red it on The Singing News website and not on Gaither’s official site. The kids running the site apparently feel like those folks are loyal and will take anything they get. Sort of like the Republicans (edit that). It’s not pretty.
The writer thinks this kind of thing could threaten the Homecoming franchise, but I’m not so sure. Message boards necessarily tend to attract the vocal, overly sensitive and others eager to howl and carry on to an extent all out of proportion to the situation. Gaither does seem to be awfully bad about communicating with the faithful, but they’re not the faithful for no reason. A new Gloria Gaither recitation and these folks’ll be all aswoon again in no time.
