Popular Southern gospel vocal group New Legacy Quartet presents a live concert at 7 p.m. Friday, April 5 at Victory Fellowship, 610 Eighth St. NE, Auburn.

Admission is free to the non-denominational event.

Formerly known as the Blackwood Legacy, ground-breaking Nashville, Tenn.,-based New Legacy Project blenda an edgy Southern gospel sound with contemporary worship. They were recently honored with nomination for Fan Favorite and Breakthrough Artists of the Year at the AGA awards show in Nashville.

New Legacy is led by Rick Price, who spent much of his 40-year career with the Grammy and Dove Award-winning Blackwood Brothers, and who was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame with the quartet.

“In 40 years of gospel music, this is the finest group I have ever been a part of,” Price said. “Not only are they great singers and musicians, they are wonderful Christian men.”

The concert is part of New Legacy’s “I’ll Stand” tour, which is bringing attention and honor to U.S. veterans and their families who have made sacrifices and are struggling through illnesses and mental health issues as a result of their service.

The group’s single, “I’ll Stand,” is being played throughout the country, and a copy is being placed in the hands of veterans, along with a letter of thanks, a Bible, and other resource information. NLP is working with the churches to deliver the “thank you” packages to veterans hospitals throughout the country.

For more information, contact NewLegacyProject.com, or call the church at 253-939-5543.
