One of Gospel music’s most popular quartets, The Dixie Melody Boys, will perform in Shoreline next month.

The Dixie Melody Boys have enjoyed success since organizing more than four decades ago. The quartet has been nominated for a Grammy and have received numerous Fan Award nominations from The Singing News Magazine, Southern Gospel Music’s leading fan and trade publication. Their hits include recent releases such as “I’ll Be Living That Way,” “I Won’t Compromise,” “Welcome Home,” “Antioch Church Choir” and “I’m One Of Them.”

The thrill and excitement of performing experienced by each group member night after night is most evident at each concert. Their goal of delivering a first-class performance filled with excitement, energy and lots of great traditional Gospel music has been instilled in each member by group leader Ed O’Neal, a 50-year Gospel Music veteran. O’Neal was inducted into the Southern Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame in 2004.

The Dixie Melody Boys will perform their four-part harmony at 7 p.m., Jan. 7 at the Berean Bible Church, 2345 N 185th St., Shoreline.
