Harvest Church to host concert

NORMAN — Contemporary Christian Artists Russ Taff, Wayne Watson, Clay Crosse and First Call will share the stage of Norman’s Harvest Church, 6450 36th Ave. NW, for a concert at 7 p.m. Sunday.

The event, called the Lord Of All Tour, brings together some of the best-known voices in Christian music of the ’80s and ’90s.

Taff’s career in Christian music spans more than 30 years — from the Imperials and the Gaither Vocal Band, to his continuing work as a solo artist. Taff will perform many of the hit songs that helped earn him five Grammy Awards, 11 Dove Awards and his 1998 induction into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame.

Wayne Watson has had 23 No. 1 singles on Christian radio including the 1989 Dove Award’s Song of the Year, “Friend Of A Wounded Heart.”

Clay Crosse has released 11 albums since 1993 and has been honored with four Dove Awards. His debut album featured the hit “I Surrender All,” which garnered him the Dove Award for New Artist of the Year.

First Call — with original members Mel Tunney, Marty McCall and Bonnie Keen — is an award-winning vocal group with 11 albums to their credit.

After forming to sing background vocals for studio projects, the trio received invitations to perform on concert tours with Sandi Patty, Amy Grant and others.

First Call released their first album in 1985 and received the Dove Award for Group of the Year in 1988 and 1989.
