Georgians: New look, new sound, new CDs

VALDOSTA — A local gospel group reveals a new sound and releases two new CDs with a concert this weekend.

Long a male, four-part harmony group, The Georgians added two female singers, says band leader Calvin McGuyrt.

McGuyrt had curtailed The Georgians’ travel in the past year. Two past members left the group. One member joined McGuyrt as a business partner.

They auditioned several people. They selected two women singers as new members.

McGuyrt describes the change as giving the gospel group a “new, refreshing sound.”

This new group recorded and released two CDs within weeks of one another. One CD is “God’s Amazing Grace.” The other is “You Can Make a Comeback.”

The CD concert is scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday, June 7, New Harvest United Methodist Church.
