Tribute Quartet’s name came from its version of preserving the heritage and promoting the future of Southern Gospel music. They desired to pay homage to the legends they grew up admiring, carrying that torch respectfully. Yet, they wanted to create a sound uniquely their own, becoming the kind of quartet they believed the Lord was calling them to be today. That's how the Tribute Quartet began. In appearance, warmth and style, this gifted group, based in Nashville, has become exactly what it set out to be, representing Southern Gospel at its finest. — tributequartet.com

Pro-Life Legislative Day 2014
Dear Pro-Life Churches and Leaders:
THE DATE TO REMEMBER IS TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 2014. Attached is the flyer from Alabama Citizens for Life announcing this year's Pro-Life Legislative Day at the State House in Montgomery.
If at all possible, your presence would be of enormous value! If you cannot go, however, phone calls, emails, and faxes sent (preferably on that date or just before) would be a great substitute! PLEASE LET OUR LEGISLATORS KNOW THAT ALABAMA IS PRO-LIFE AND ALABAMIANS WANT ACTION ON THAT PRINCIPLE! Contact information is easily available on the web; or, optionally, feel free to contact me at 661-8117 (phone) or 581-2447 (phone or text) for assistance.
Alabama Citizens for Life, our state's NRLC affiliate, considers this a major yearly project of great assistance in successfully guiding our pro-life slate through the overcrowded legislative calendar. Your help will be deeply appreciated!
