Joyful's 2013 Tour info...
Joyful had an awesome Gospel music workshop over in Gronau and Haltern Germany. Every workshop keeps on getting better and better each time. The German Choirs are always a pleasure to work with at anytime. We always appreciate their warmth hospitality and love that is shown to us each time we are there in Germany.
We would like to thank the Soulful Swinging Singers and the other choirs for their participation in the workshop. They all were awesome and we appreciate each one of them. Certainly, it would not have been possible, without their eagerness or strong desire to learn. It was a great pleasure for Joyful and we look forward to another great choir workshop in the near future.
A great shout to the Master teacher, songwriter, musician Carolyn D. Shield. She taught her original songs, arrangements and was very pleased with the ending results. We the members of Joyful thank God for her humbleness and energy that she displays whenever she is in action.
We would like to thank Nu Kingdom: Timothy J. Ashmore, Ebony L. Fears, Kristie Patterson and Lamarris Hall who also played a role in the success of the workshop.
Special thanks to Alfred S. Caston, Albert C. Mickel and Jan Randolph who is the main core of Joyful for their leadership, support, direction and endurance. May God continue to bless and keep you All always.
Eddie Domino & special guest soloist Pearlie Tyler would like to send out a Special thanks to Gianca, Hannes & Elmar for a wonderful tour in Rapperswil and Germany. Also a shout to the Hotel Speer & Hotel Driland for their excellent hospitality. Also a kind thank you to all of the fans that supported us while we were there. We are over excited with joy and look forward to returning in the near future. Much appreciation to you All!
