The 23rd Annual Hartford Gospel Music "Hills of Fame" Songfest is scheduled for this Sunday evening, May 12, on Mother’s Day, beginning at 6 p.m. at Faith Chapel in Hartford.

Come enjoy an evening of inspirational gospel music in commemoration of the Hartford Music Co., once owned and operated in Hartford, Ark. The Hartford Music Co. published such well-known songs as "I’ll Fly Away," written by Albert E. Brumley; "Victory in Jesus," written by E.M. Bartlett; and "Just a Rose Will Do," written by J.A. McClung. All three of these famous writers have been inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, and all were owners of the Hartford Music Company.

The Jeffress Quartet will be the special entertainers, and selected local talent will also be featured. The admission is free.

"You will enjoy the breathtakingly beautiful drive just 30 miles south of Fort Smith on Hwy 45. Bring your mother and your family and come on out to hear and participate in some good old gospel singing this Mother’s Day," said a spokesperson for the songfest.
