Singers of all ages compete in the sing. Winners of the first singing competitions received Loving Cups which were provided by Sears retail store. Until 1950, when a covered stage was built and dedicated to the founders, temporary stages were built from lumber borrowed from R. F. Smith’s saw mill.

All groups are welcome and encouraged to sing in the contest and talent search. Groups wishing to sing in the competition are asked to fill out a registration form by 1pm, Saturday, June 21. Free Admission and no entry fee for this event. For more information on the events at this year’s sing, visit www.gospelsingingconvention.org or call 919-894-4389.
