DOC MCKENZIE AND THE HI-LITES CELEBRATE 50 YEARS OF MUSIC MINISTRY
LAKE CITY, SC—After 50 years, the “doctor” is still writing prescriptions for the heavy-hearted, those with a contrite spirit, and those who just need a little pick-me-up. The Bible declares in Isaiah 61:3 that the Lord gives beauty for ashes, oil of joy for mourning, and a garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. Well, world-renowned Doc McKenzie and the Hi-Lites still know how to usher in the beauty, the joy, and the praises when they take to the stage.
With a repertoire of over 15 recordings and numerous awards, including the Stellar Awards, the Hi-Lites are known the world over as one of the jewels of Gospel Music. The South Carolina Legislature, by way of Resolution, recognized the accomplishments of the extraordinarily talented Doc McKenzie.
After traveling all over the country, Doc McKenzie and the Hi-Lites will return to their hometown in the Florence area July 5, 2015 for a Fourth of July celebration as well as a celebration of their 50th Golden Anniversary. The anniversary concert, which will be held at the Pentecostal Convention Center, 4430 Pamplico Highway, Florence, SC, 29505, will feature an all-star lineup of quartet gospel greats and friends of Doc such as Lee Williams and the Spiritual QCs, Bishop Darrell McFadden and the Disciples, the Gospel Legends, and Flossie Boyd Johnson and Favor.
