BEEVILLE – Gospel music lovers will not want to miss a special concert on Tuesday morning, July 2, at La Amistad Adult Care and Activity Center at 403 N. Monroe St.

The Telestials will be here at 9:30 and will perform until 11:30 that morning after coming all the way from Nashville, Tenn., for some Texas performances.

One of their stops while in the Lone Star State will be at La Amistad, where they will perform for one of their special fans.

“We invite the community to come out,” said Noe Bradt, activities director for the center.

There is no admission, and refreshments will be available for those who attend the concert.

The Telestials were established in 1961 by three women, including Beth Glass and her sisters. The initially went by the name The “Harmony” Trio, and they sang at church functions.

The group recorded their first album in Atlanta, Ga., in 1966 and expanded in 1969 to include male vocals.

By the 1970s, the Telestials were being nominated for some of the big gospel music awards with albums like “Here They Come,” “One Way Flight,” “Free Indeed,” “Holy High and Lifted Up” and “Help Wanted.”

These days, Beth’s husband, Jim Glass, manages the group and the Glass children have carried on the family tradition. The group now includes grandchildren.

“We know where blessings come from, and we know the Blesser,” said Beth.

Members of the group today include Jim and Beth Glass, Jerry, Bethany and Caleb Brown and Scott Lucas.

The Telestials record for New Wine Records, and their latest recording is “Almost Home.”
