Amazing Grace formed in 2004 as the Praise Band for Salem United Methodist Church in Virginia Beach, VA. In the years since, we have continued to sing at Sunday services at Salem, but our musical ministry has evolved into much more.
We are performing members of Tidewater Arts Outreach (TAO), a group of volunteer professional, semi-professional and amateur artists, artisans and performers who take their talents to nursing homes, retirement homes and other organizations in the Tidewater Virginia area. We perform regularly in non-TAO events at other retirement homes and at churches in the Southeastern Virginia/Northeastern North Carolina region.
Our music consists primarily of Southern Gospel with a country flair, folk, Americana and even some show tunes.
Amazing Grace is: Charles Higgins (guitar, bass and vocals), Rhonda Meehan (percussion and vocals), Sharon Nolin (keyboards and vocals) and Craig Nolin (guitar and vocals). Photo taken at Providence UMC, Goldsboro, NC (Rev. Dustin Sprouse) 10/26/2014
