One of Gospel music's most popular quartets, The Dixie Melody Boys, will be featured at New Hope Community Church of the Nazarene in Yakima next Saturday, Jan. 13, at 5 p.m.

Since organizing nearly four decades ago, The Dixie Melody Boys have enjoyed success, including a Grammy nomination and numerous Fan Award nominations from The Singing News Magazine, southern gospel music's leading fan and trade publication.

The Dixie Melody Boys four-part harmonies have led to releases such as "I'll Be Living That Way," "I Won't Compromise," "Welcome Home," "Antioch Church Choir" and "I'm One Of Them."

The group is led by Ed O'Neal, a 45-year gospel music veteran, who was inducted into the Southern Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame in 2004.

Since their original formation nearly four decades ago, the North Carolina-based quartet has produced more than 20 top 40 hits, including eight top 10 releases and a number one single on the southern gospel music charts.

The group's energy and excitement, coupled with their exceptional vocal blend is appealing to audiences of all ages.

New Hope Community Church of the Nazarene is located at 700 N. Fourth Ave. in Yakima.
