Greatly Blest is a dedicated group of anointed vocalist and musicians that “Love the Lord” and carry on His mission in stunning harmony with an easy listening style. As well as original music written by the group, Greatly Blest worships with a genre of well know Southern Gospel music, both Past and Present. Their smooth and tight harmony is in true good old Southern Gospel style. The versatility of Tina, Joyce and Edwin doesn’t allow them to classified themselves as singing a specific part. Tina and Joyce cover all of the upper ranges of Lead, Alto and Tenor depending upon the arrangement and Edwin covers the mid to low ranges of Lead, Alto, Tenor and even touches the edge of Bass on certain arrangements. Greatly Blest considers ourselves a regional Group, traveling the eastern United States at present, but is willing to travel any where the Lord provides the means and opportunity.
Tina, Joyce and Edwin are no strangers to Southern Gospel Music. All three started as young adults and have played or sang with other Groups in the Past and performed on stage in a variety of venues. Greatly Blest is just getting started but while with other groups they have opened for other well know artists.
The members of Greatly Blest are related. Joyce and Edwin are husband and wife of 41 years of marriage. They were married in 1971. Tina is related to Edwin, they are 3rd cousins. Their Great Great Grandfathers were brothers, but that family harmony shines through.
We are sure that once you hear this group Greatly Blest you will say that you have been "Greatly Blest"

What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 30 - 60 minutes
A sincere desire to see the kingdom of Christ expanded. Easy listening music with tight harmonies in a true Southern Gospel style.
The venue type certainly controls level of ministry this group can and will deliver. In the church setting it is all about worship but we can be just as comfortable in a concert setting.
Varies depending on type and length of service, but always consists of Southern Gospel favorites of the past mixed with originals and current Southern Gospel favorites
