Ivan Parker and The Ball Brothers-in concert

Ivan Parker and the Ball Brothers are returning to Lincoln, Il. Their annual joint concert has become a very welcome first sign of spring, and this year will be better than ever. Ivan Parker is well known to gospel music fans as one of the most awarded and popular gospel singers of this period. His appearances across the nation and in foreign countries, plus his performances on the Gaither Homecoming Series, have made him a familiar face and voice to millions. The Ball Brothers, now residing in Chickamauga, Georgia, spent their childhood in Lincoln, Il., where their father was a Baptist pastor. In 2006, they began singing as a family quartet and have been blessed to enjoy a steady ascent to the top of their profession. They gained valuable experience and exposure touring with such distinguished groups as Signature Sound, Gold City, and the Gaither Homecoming Series. Young people will enjoy their energetic performances and older audiences will appreciate their wonderful four-part harmony.
