The next Sacred Sounds concert benefiting the Share America Foundation will feature Southern gospel quartet Testimony and country/gospel pianist Ryan Stinson.

The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13, at the Ringgold (Ga.) Depot. Randall Franks will emcee.

The members of Testimony are US101 radio personality Ken Hicks, who sings bass; Dove Award nominee Howard Stewart, baritone; tenor Brad Harris; and lead singer Heath Allen.

Stinson has been playing piano for 12 years, beginning with five years of lessons from the pianist at his home church, First Baptist of Fort Oglethorpe. Stinson says he plays everything by ear and specializes in the Nashville sound slip-note style popularized by the late Floyd Cramer.

The event is a fundraiser for the Pearl and Floyd Franks Scholarship Fund, administered by the nonprofit Share America Foundation.

Tickets are available in advance at SonShine Christian Books, 1841 Battlefield Parkway, Fort Oglethorpe.
