Family singing group returns to Plant City for encore presentation


PLANT CITY an award winning gospel singing group will return for an evening concert, delivering original songs with uplifting messages of hope at First Church of God in Plant City.

The Dartts, a family singing group, will perform at 6:30 Sunday at the church, 601 N. Gordon St.

A reception will take place immediately following the concert, where strawberry shortcake and ice cream will be served.

Pastor Clarence Phairas said the group is returning for the second year by popular demand.

“People just loved them,” Phairas said. “Of the groups we’ve had they’re back by popular demand.”

He said the Nashville based singing group is led by Tracy Dartt, who has written and recorded hundreds of gospel songs but is best known for his signature song “God on the Mountain.”

“It’s been recorded by hundreds of singers all over the world,” Phairas said. The song has been popularized and performed to many audiences by Lynda Randle who sings with the Gaither Homecoming series.

“A lot of people don’t know the Dartts per se but they know the songs,” Pharias said. “When they meet the Dartts they know why they like the music.”

There is no charge for the service or the dessert.

For information, call Phairas at (813) 752-6438.
