Brother's Keeper' in concert Thursday

By By Penny Randall/The Meridian Star

The Christian contemporary band Brother's Keeper will perform at Bonita Lakes Mall Thursday at 7 p.m.
Members of Brother's Keeper include Gabe Dunlap, John Sanders and Philip Enzor. The band members live in Memphis and began singing together in high school. They continued to perform together in college and are now signed with Ardent Records.
The band's name, Brother's Keeper, reflects their goal to direct people to Christ through music. Their most popular songs include: "Rain On," "I Saw Heaven," "What Would Jesus Do," "Heart of the Matter" and "Miss Right."
The group is about halfway through its "Out of the Dark" tour. They will make a stop at Bonita Lakes Mall on their way to North Carolina. The group is being sponsored by Chick-fil-A owner Tracy Roper, with the help of several area businesses.
Roper wanted a well-known group.
When all his ideas ran into dead ends, he put the idea in the back of his mind. One day, Rick Wise, youth director at NorthPark Church, called Roper.
The answer to Roper's prayers had been delivered.
Admission for the concert is one canned food item, which will be donated to Victory Outreach.
The concert will be held on the vacant lot between Great Southern National Bank and O'Charley's Restaurant. In the event of rain, it will be moved inside Bonita Lakes Mall. Concert-goers are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets.
For more information, call Tracy Roper at 693-1842; Bonita Lakes Mall Marketing Director Tommy White at 693-4960; or Rick Wise at NorthPark Church at 482-1322. More information about Brother's Keeper can be found on their Web site at www.brotherskeeper.org.
