CANTON — A popular gospel trio is unveiling its latest CD with a concert at the Cherokee Arts Center. Daily Bread, featuring Cherokee County residents Darrek Cornelison, Bailey Cornelison and Melissa Eubanks-Gandy will be on stage Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. to perform from their fifth CD, “Stand Still,” which features a selection of older gospel songs. “One of the favorites is the feature song, ‘Stand Still.’ We used photos that my daughter took of the different seasons of the year, the beach, the mountains in the snow, and it just hit me that we should all take a moment and just stand still,” Darrek Cornelison said.
While Darrek has been a fixture in gospel music in Cherokee County for years, the three have been together as Daily Bread for about three years, already releasing four CD’s in that time. The trio is known for what has been called a performance of breathtaking family style three-part harmony.
The latest CD features 14 songs, including “In God We Still Trust,” a patriotic song, and “Christmas in Heaven.”
“For all the songs we got together and we chose what we felt like people would enjoy and what we wanted to do.
That is how we put our list together,” Darrek said.
The concert will feature songs from the latest CD plus a few extra ones as a surprise, he said. “It is a night of gospel music, and a night of being entertained and having fun,” the musician said. There will be door prizes and other fun portions of the evening as well, he said.
Cooper River, two talented young people who play the guitar and mandolin, will open the show. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased in advance by contacting Cornelison at (404) 630-9212 or email dailybread@ windstream. net.
The CD sells for $15 and will be on sale for the first time that night, he said. The musicians will sign and have photos taken for those in attendance. “We look forward to seeing everyone out there and just having a great time,” he said.
