Join 12 News Daybreak during Gospel Week 2017

"Starlight Church of God in Christ in Orange... that's pretty much all I have to say." - Lance Edwards

Across the world this week is known as Holy Week, and as people prepare for Easter weekend gatherings, whether they be leisure, family, or religious, we've decided to find some of the top Gospel musicians in Southeast Texas.

We're not necessarily looking for recording artists with major labels, we just want to meet the people from our backyard who belt it out in church on Sunday morning.

On Monday morning, 12 News featured  Marie Sanders, the music director at Antioch Missionary Baptist Church in Beaumont. Sanders is from Orange and she's been singing since she was three years old.

Tuesday we featured a woman from Kountze by the name of Betty Lacy who's been singing inside her little white church since 1975.

Woodville was our destination on Wednesday as we visited with Pastor Chris Houghton of Fellowship Church. He performed a song called "Blameless" by Dara Maclean.

Thursday morning, we highlight the preacher's wife at Iconium Family Church in Beaumont. Linda Walker told 12 News that you don't need music to sing, period!

On Friday we will wrapped up Gospel Week with two performances from Scott Olive Missionary Baptist Church Pastor David Hudson, and as you can watch at the top of the page, a beautiful song by Linda Broussard and her singers at Starlight Church of God in Christ in Orange, Texas.
