Gospel Music Hall of Fame member Mark Lowry will bring his exciting What’s Not To Love Tour to the First Baptist Church at 9184 Ford Ave. in Richmond Hill on Sept. 21. The event will begin at 7 p.m.

A native of Houston, Texas, Lowry is an internationally known singer, storyteller, humorist, author and songwriter. His world-famous lyric to “Mary Did You Know?” resulted in one of the most-loved modern Christmas songs of this century.

Co-written with Buddy Greene, the captivating Christmas tune blurs genre lines, having been recorded more than 400 times by a broad base of music luminaries like Pentatonix, Reba McEntire, CeeLo Green, Michael English, Kenny Rogers, Sandi Patty and Rascal Flatts.

For more than 20 years cumulatively, Lowry was a staple member of the Grammy-award-winning Gaither Vocal Band and served as the sidesplitting comedic sidekick through Bill Gaither’s live concert tours and best-selling Homecoming video and television series.

His musical recordings have earned him multiple Dove Awards, the highest honor in gospel music, and an induction into the Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame.

A deep thinker with an outrageous sense of humor, Lowry’s life work consists of a deep discography of gold and platinum recordings. However, with the broadness of musical inspiration found in Lowry’s catalog, one element never changes – his desire to communicate profound truths through songs and stories that keep his multi-generational audience on the edge of their seats.

“I leave the lights up in the audience so I can see the audience,” Lowry explains. “I love walking out into the audience and getting closer to the people. And I treasure the serendipitous moments when God shows up, without warning, but very expectedly.”
