Weleetka, OK (June 3, 2015) Multi-award nominated Southern Gospel artist, The Williamsons, are announcing their first Homecoming Concert, complete with a dinner available. This exciting event will take place Saturday, June 20th at the Union Valley Church, just south of Ada, Oklahoma. The Williamsons are thrilled to have the Freemans and 11th Hour performing.
Formed as a family group back in 1969 as the Williamson Family, but in 1998 Donnie Williamson and his sister Tennie, changed the name of the group to the Homesteaders, and then in 2010 Donnie returned the group back to the family name of The Williamsons.
Donnie Williamson, manager and Baritone for the group stated, “Of course none of the other current members of the group were even born in 1969.” Continuing he added “We have a rich heritage in Gospel music and I think it just time to have a big Homecoming with a great concert featuring some of our good friends.”
The big Homecoming Concert will be an all-day event starting with a 2:00 PM Matinee featuring The Williamsons, with Faiths Journey, Ava Kasich, Lineage of David and preaching by Les Butler.
At 4:00PM there will be an old fashioned Supper offered together with the artists made by the church ladies for a cost of $6.
Rounding out the evening will be a dynamic 6:00PM Evening Concert featuring The Williamsons, 11th Hour, and The Freemans.
THE EVENT IS FREE – A LOVE OFFERING WILL BE RECEIVED.

About The Williamsons
The Williamsons began sharing the Gospel through music in 1998 as The Homesteaders Quartet. The dream of Donnie Williamson was to form a group to sing classic Gospel music on a limited basis. What he wanted to do never occurred. From the group’s onset their demand was overwhelming. Soon they were performing more than 100 dates a year. For the past several years The Williamsons have been in full time Christian ministry and entertainment and have traveled across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Their music has been in national charts and were they honored to be nominated to the Gospel Music Association for a Dove Award.
Their high energy musical style appeals to people of all ages. The versatility of The Williamsons is evident through the wide variety of musical styles they perform. There is always something for everyone. The marketing of their performances targets families and not just fans of any particular type of music. Spending an evening with The Williamsons is sure to be one that will lift you up, bless you, and entertain you all at the same time. Their primary desire is to share the Gospel in such a way that those in attendance who do not know Jesus Christ will come to know him before the program is over.
