Voices Won will bring harmony to Sacred Sounds Fridays at the Ringgold Depot at Depot Street and U.S. 41, Friday, Jan. 11, at 7:30 p.m. 

Randall Franks, “Officer Randy Goode” from TV’s “In the Heat of the Night” will emcee. Ticket donation is $5.

Voices Won from Dalton features brothers Jaron, Shantell and Staclynn Faulknor.

“Our main goal is to see folks blessed,” Jaron said. “When we step on stage we want our love of God to be first and when we perform at the historic Ringgold Depot, we can feel His presence.” 

 “Christian fellowship and music among friends, what a great way to spend an evening,” he said. 

Crossroads Entertainment released their latest CD “The Basics” blending a Southern gospel sound with progressive arrangements that share a solid gospel message.
