Live Issue take to the stage

LOCAL country gospel band Live Issue provided a great evening of entertainment at a concert in Lisburn on Saturday February 2.

Since the band reformed in 2006, their unique style of music and ministry has reached a whole new generation across Ireland, the United Kingdom and America.

They literally made history in Nashville by becoming the first group from Ireland, and only the second group from the British Isles, to perform on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry. To appear there would be a dream come true for any artist in the country music business, and yet this great honour has fallen to the members of an unassuming local country gospel band.

Many people feel the members of Live Issue have become ambassadors not only for country gospel music, but also for their Christian faith and everything that is good about Northern Ireland.
