Mark Bishop has always had a song to write, a story to tell and one to sing. It's a trait that goes back to his childhood. “I've always enjoyed doing creative things,” he said. “Even when I was a kid, I would make up songs, and I loved to draw and write stories.” His creativity as a youngster carried over into adulthood when Bishop began his singing career as a member of The Bishops, a popular southern gospel trio based in Waco, Ky. Bishop, along with brother Kenny and father Kenneth, recorded numerous hits during a 17-year period, most of which appeared on the Singing News Top 40 charts.

A concert by The Imperials was Allison Durham Speer's earliest introduction to Christian music. She watched as Russ Taff performed the songs, "Praise the Lord" and "New Creation," and was instantly passionate about the gospel word set to song. The passion she felt that night has taken her to the stage, performing alongside Russ Taff, and as a regular on the Gaither Homecoming videos and tours. Speer has performed in mega-churches such as First Baptist in Atlanta, The Brooklyn Tabernacle and First Baptist Orlando, as well as small rural churches, including her home church in Boyle County, Parksville Baptist, this past summer.
