Carol was selected to the top 12, in the female gospel vocalist category, to compete in the 2002 Gospel Showdown, in Branson. Just a few weeks before, Carol had been named to the Branson Gospel Music Association’s (BGMA) top 10 gospel female vocalists! She did not win either of these events, but had a wonderful time participating, making many new friends and gaining many new connections! Thank you Branson, for these two honors!!!
After this event, God continued to open doors for Carol’s Music Ministry in Branson, MO. I’ve made so many wonderful friends & shared in so many Jammin’ for Jesus events over these, now, 20+ years! I constantly Praise God for all of the opportunities He’s blessed me with throughout the mid-west to sing & share my testimony of Love for Him. And, I Praise God for all of the many who booked me or helped me to get bookings at various programs, fundraisers, church events and for all of my CGMA (Country Gospel Music Association) Family! CGMA’s main location is in Branson & my joining that organization to further Carol’s Music Ministry served as a gigantic opening of a door to Gospel Music Heaven on Earth with fellow CGMA members. CGMA is an international organization with hundreds of members. I am thrilled to be a member of this wonderful group of Jesus Loving Musicians & Artists!!
