This show was quite a surprise to us. We were not familiar with the history of the Blackwoods and were very impressed with their singing. A very uplifting show.

We liked the Blackwoods' show so much, we bought their special CD offer on the spot. The group sang a wide variety of gospel songs as well as popular songs from the last 50 years. Such a great blessing to sing along with them!

"Inspiring Faith through song"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 27, 2018 NEW
My favorite was the tribute to Veterans. This is not as evident in the 14 shows we have attended this year as it was in the past. That was a powerful moment that made my eyes water. Thank you for your love of God an Country. I learned a lot about the Blackwood’s history. As great as everything was, I encourage you to have your talented singers also perform some modern uplifting songs of faith like I Can Only Imagine, You Lift Me Up, Nothing but the Blood of Jesus or so many more. Or maybe someone in Branson would make an entire show of inspiring popular Christian songs. Just a thought...

Call them the Blackwood Brothers, the Blackwood Quartet, the Blackwood Singers, or some other name – the Blackwood family has blessed thousands of people over the last 80 years with their singing. The show today is better than ever! Listen to some timeless gospel classics, and some new songs of faith too. Hear interesting stories about Elvis Presley and other celebrities they have known. Honor our veterans. Be inspired by Donna Blackwood’s victory over cancer. Come see the live show, then take home their CD set to listen to again and again. Expect to be blessed!
