Sonrise Notes for May 25th...
This is Memorial Day weekend, making tomorrow a federal holiday as we remember those men and women in the armed forces who lost their lives serving our country. They are blessings to us all and we have them, and their families in our thoughts and prayers this weekend.
...Plumb just announced her fall tour called “Stories Of Hope”. The tour features Rhett Walker Band and Jonathan Thulin and will kick off in early September and run through November.
...Jamie Grace got some praise from Singer Michael Buble recently when he did a backstage warm-up with her song “Hold Me”. He sent out a tweet saying “Tonight we give you a very popular dressing room warm up request! @jamiegraceh you've got some serious supporters!!” then posted the video to him singing the song. Jamie shared it too saying “Oh my goodness!! @michaelbuble singing Hold Me!! Thanks to his team and everyone who requested it. This is so cool!!! They sound better than the original” Judge for yourself here.
...We are a little over a week away from the premiere of the Game Show Network’s new matchmaking series “It Takes A Church,” hosted by Natalie Grant, Thursday, June 5 at 9pm Eastern. Each week, one unsuspecting single who has a desire to find a mate, is surprised to learn that their church is coming together to help them find love, led by their own pastor, who speaks to the situation and gives advice on the potential suitors. The partnership provides Christian Mingle with in-show integration throughout the season; plus all of the daters who are not ultimately chosen will receive annual memberships to the dating service. Find out more about the show here.
