Gospel Duo Nominated for Award

Gospel music: it echoes through the churches across Texoma and a local duo is hitting it big.

Friends for six years, and singing partners for five, Tamie Perkins and Cathie Marsh have a record deal, a new CD, and a gospel award nomination, and the duo called, "Amazed."

For the gospel singing duo, "Amazed," their success has been an emotional high.

Singing since childhood, Tamie and Cathie have dabbled in various types of music, but believe gospel is their calling.

With a new album, and top five nomination for a national gospel award, amazed is becoming something of a local gospel legend, and Texoma's just the starting point.

Practicing in Tamie's living room any chance they get, the duo has become family to each other. It's been hard for these two working moms to put their finger on it. But what they do know is that singing feels right. And these booming voices are carrying them to the top.

The Diamond Awards, recognizing top gospel groups across America, will be presented in mid-September at the National Quartet Convention in Louisville.

Tamie and Cathie hope supporters will visit their web site, www.ctamazed.com, and vote for them in the 2005 Diamond Awards.
