First Christian Church of Mt. Sterling to host gospel group ‘Anticipation’
The Gospel group Anticipation will be appearing in concert at the First Christian Church, 117 West Washington, Mt. Sterling as the second concert in their annual Summer Concert Series. The concert is Sunday, June 13 at 6 p.m.
The Himmels come from a decidedly musical family. Just about everybody on the Himmel side of the family have all been musicians in some capacity. Now, Brian Himmel and his two sons, Brandon and Chris, have been singing together for six years. But despite all the experience and history, the family Southern gospel trio Anticipation was hardly conceived as a long-term project. In fact, they were only ever meant to perform in one show.
“My dad was asked to perform at this church event, and he said he would if my brother and I could sing with him,” said Chris. “So we just went up there and did the thing, and that same night we’re getting multiple other offers to sing at churches. We started doing those, and then it just became a steady thing all on its own.”
