Bill and Gloria and the Homecoming Friends unite for this Christmas celebration captured live in Johannesburg. Featured artists include the Gaither Vocal Band, Lynda Randle (with Michael Tait), Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, Jessy Dixon, and Ben Speer together with the inimitable African Children's Choir who steal the show. The CD includes such traditional Christmas songs as "Joy To The World" and "Silent Night", together with some awesome new tunes which remind us once more of the real purpose of Christmas. Black gospel's Lynda Randle performs a breathtaking rendition of "Go Tell It On The Mountain" to rapturous applause. Whatever your thoughts on this partnership, this is one CD which will go down a treat whilst opening the presents or munching away on a Christmas lunch. Personally - I loved it!!

The second installment. A special Homecoming with a difference recorded in South Africa in conjunction with Franklin Graham and Operation Christmas Child
Bill and Gloria Gaither and their Homecoming Friends along with evangelist Franklin Graham, carried the message of God's love wrapped in a simple shoe box filled with necessities to the children of South Africa. Unforgettable moments of love and joy were captured on film as the children received their gifts and talked and sang with God's messengers from America.
Along with their involvement with Operation Christmas Child, the Homecoming Friends performed a special Christmas concert before a sold out crowd of enthusiastic gospel music fans.
