Voices of Lee, an a capella vocal ensemble from Lee University, will appear on national television Saturday as part of the Gaither Vocal Band’s homecoming television special.

The program, a one-hour preview of the Gaither’s upcoming Give it Away DVD, was recorded on March 21 in the Indiana Roof Ballroom in Indianapolis, Ind. More than a dozen television networks nationwide, including Great American Country, The Inspiration Network, and i Independent Television (formerly PAX), will air the special at various times on Aug. 12.

During the March performance, Voices thrilled the mostly Indiana-based audience with their rendition of “Back Home Again in Indiana” and returned to sing “Give it Away” with the Gaither Vocal Band for the show’s grand finale, said officials. The 16-member student ensemble from Cleveland shared the stage with homecoming favorites Ernie Haase & Signature Sound and Broadway star Larry Wayne Morbitt.

Directed by Danny Murray, Voices is one of Lee’s premier vocal ensembles. Since their debut in September 1994, the group has entertained audiences worldwide with their unique variety of lush vocal harmonies, high-energy patriotic numbers, fun-filled audience participation, and heart-felt gospel favorites. The group also gave birth to internationally-acclaimed quartet Four Voices, who were named 2002 International Barbershop Quartet Champions and inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame.

Voices of Lee has appeared on Good Morning America, Bill Gaither's Familyfest and Praise Gathering” and at many of America’s most well-known churches, including Christ Church in Nashville. Their convention appearances have taken them from Israel to Ontario and to numerous cities all over the nation. The group has performed for the White House’s Christmas celebration, the Atlanta Braves, the Orlando Magic, and several major Independence Day celebrations.

Voices latest recording project, “Encore,” is a collection of contemporary Christian worship music that was released earlier this year on the Brentwood-Benson label. The album and accompanying songbook feature arrangements by Derric Johnson, Bradley Knight, Jim Gray and David Maddox.

“Gaither Homecoming” videos, music recordings, and concerts are presented by Grammy-award-winning songwriters Bill and Gloria Gaither. To date, the Gaither homecoming title can be found on more than 60 videos, dozens of recordings, and an annual concert tour that draws more than half a million fans every year. Programs regularly feature live performances by the Gaithers along with special guests, including many of the biggest names in Southern Gospel music.

Viewers are advised to check their local listings and stations for the exact times that the Give it Away television special will be showing this weekend. The full-length Give it Away DVD releases worldwide on Aug. 15.

In Cleveland, cable subscribers can watch the program at 7 p.m. on i Independent Television (channel 14), the Inspiration Network (channel 120), or Great American Country (channel 143).
