The Memphis United Methodist Church will be hosting the Dysart Family, a Christian group that sings Gospel Music, on Sunday April 10th at 6:00 p.m. This is a free concert with a love offering being collected to help offset expenses.
The Dysart Family offers Southern Gospel fans unique, close family harmonies, with a diverse and powerful selection of music, many of them written by Kendra and LeWain Sr.
LeWain and Lorena Dysart, with their five children, began performing in various venues in 2006 and began releasing Projects in 2007. The Dysart Family, based out of Macon, Missouri, was nominated for Horizon Group of the year in 2012, in 2014 was voted one of the top ten nominees for New Mixed Group in the Singing News Fan Awards, and was nominated one of the top ten nominees for the Sunrise Award in the 2015 Diamond Awards. They saw their first radio single, Up and Away, chart at #28 on the Country Gospel Top 100 in February, 2012, and their current single, an original song written by LeWain Sr. entitled God’s Love is So Amazing, charted at #46 on the Singing News Top 80 charts in January, 2014. In 2015 the song has been on the Gospel Music Tour charts at #55 for several months. The Dysart Family has had the privilege of sharing the stage with Legacy Five Quartet, The Mark Trammell Quartet, The Talley Trio, The Lesters, Gold City Quartet, Jeff and Sheri Easter, and Tribute Quarter.
The Dysart’s approach to their music ministry incorporates a serious focus on personal relationships with Jesus, their love for each other in the home, and just plain hard work on their music. What they end up with are blessed times of worship in concert, complimented by a tight family blend that is distinctive to The Dysarts. Original songs from the daughter, Kendra, and Dad, LeWain, some fun times, and laughter at Dad’s silly stories of life in the home, all add up to a concert that no one wants to see come to an end.
Kendra and LeWain II join Lorena and LeWain Sr. for close family quartet harmonies, trios and duets. Kendra’s rich, smooth lead voice leaves people wanting to hear more, while LeWain II’s deep, smooth bass adds that something extra that everyone wants to hear from a quartet. Lorena adds her rich alto to the mix and LeWain Sr joins in with the tenor. All combined you get a unique family blend that is simply the Dysarts. It is the highlight of the concert when the three younger boys join the family to sing a few songs in each concert.
Everyone is welcome to attend this musical event at the Memphis United Methodist Church. There will also be a carry-in dinner immediately following the concert.
