Bullock and Beckham Concert

Oh, you all should've been there! Tonight, at KCCBS, here in Overland Park, we were privileged to hear the once infamous Bullock and Beckham duo! Talk about memories!!! I, along with many others in the Holiness movement, grew up listening to Richard Beckham and Rex Bullock as well as Ann Baldwin. What a trip down memory lane...they were both reminiscing in between songs. They sang some of their "signature songs" such as "Oh Glorious Love," "Christ Is Not A Disappointment," as well as "Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory."
I am extremely nostalgic, and do still remember the time that Richard was singing at the Overland Park Church of God (Holiness) many years ago. I was probably 10 - 12 years old when this happened. The church was packed to the gills and suddenly, three men walked in, strangers to the congregation. At least one of them was dressed in all black. They came clear up to the front and sat down. Richard Beckham sang "Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory," and God's presence was manifest. Later, it was learned that the man in black, was a warlock. He had actually married a couple who were in the congregation. He had a desire to come into a church service again, after turning his back on God and becoming an arch follower of Satan. It was quite the story!
Well, anyway, that was my evening! Hope to hear from some more of you out there!

I kinda would have liked to been at that concert. It's been many, many years since I saw that duo sing. Unfortunately, I was in Buffalo all weekend.
