Gladys Knight and her Saints Unified Voices choir came to Dallas for the weekend to put on a few missionary firesides. Gladys's one requirement for these fireside/concerts is that everyone bring at least one non-member. They're supposed to be missionary firesides--she doesn't want these to turn into free concerts for all of us freeloading members! Since Dave is the ward mission leader he has been involved in the missionary effort for this concert for our ward, he did a great job, our ward had a great turnout.
I thought the evening was very fun! The choir is very diverse and they sang songs from many different cultures; Hawaiian, Latin, slave gospel songs, etc. And both she and her husband told their own conversion stories and testimonies. I especially found her husband's testimony uplifting. He has a great sense of humor and at the same time seems rock solid in his faith and testimony of the church. I'm grateful that they are willing to sacrifice their time and talents to be such wonderful missionaries!
