Voices Won, a gospel-singing trio of brothers, and Calvin Newton, a two-time Gospel Music Hall of Fame inductee, will be featured at tonight's Sacred Sounds concert at the Ringgold Depot. Randall Franks will emcee.

Voices Won from Dalton, Ga., features brothers Jaron, Shantell and Staclynn Faulknor. According to Jaron, the trio strives for a well-balanced program of new music, standards and audience participation. Their latest CD, "The Basics," combines their Southern gospel sound with progressive arrangements.

Newton is a million-selling performer who was inducted into the Hall of Fame for his work with the Blackwood Brothers Quartet and the Oak Ridge Boys. The Living Legend Award winner often appears with Bill Gaither's Homecoming Friends. He is also a Hall of Fame nominee for his work with the Sons of Song.

His 66-year career is reflected in the biography "The Bad Boy of Gospel" by Dr. Russ Cheatham. Among his classic hits is "When They Ring Those Golden Bells." Among his most recent releases is "I Am Still on My Way."

The event is a fundraiser for the Pearl and Floyd Franks Scholarship Fund, administered by the Share America Foundation, a Georgia nonprofit that rewards musicians who excel in the Appalachian musical arts.
