DEVOTED — Live in a Free Concert on the Lawn, Sunday July 22nd at 4 pm, at First Baptist Church of Shelton, CT, 178 Leavenworth Rd. (Rt. 110). The gifted musical group Devoted brought audiences to their feet on Huntington Green in Shelton a few years ago. Their music is original and powerful, with a unique contemporary Gospel blend including Southern Gospel, Caribbean, praise, and traditional worship music. We think you will be blessed by this concert and hope to see you!! Children are welcome—this is a kid-friendly concert. Bring lawn chairs and a blanket. In case of rain, the concert will take place indoors at First Baptist Church. On Leavenworth Road, First Baptist Church of Shelton is located just below Oronoque Farms and the White Hills Shopping Center, about 3.5 miles from Shelton’s town center. Below is some information about the musical group Devoted, provided by the group:
Edmund Bullock, at four years old, had to stand on a front pew to be seen when he started singing with his church’s choir in Boston, Massachusetts, and performing with his father, uncle, and older brothers.
Gisela Morgan was two when she began singing with her identical twin sister Myrna on the island of St. Kitts in the British West Indies.
Edmund’s family group, The Bullock Brothers, have had a long and successful ministry—nearly 70 years to date. Gisela and Myrna Morgan, after migrating to Boston, sang together for 15 years—first as Double Blessing, then simply The Morgan Sisters—and were acclaimed throughout the U.S. and beyond.
Edmund and Gisela were united in marriage and ministry in January 2006, professionally calling themselves DEVOTED (to God and to one another). From the beginning they blended their individual styles, personalities, and cultural backgrounds to create a unique sound—Edmund, Southern Gospel, Baptist; Gisela, Caribbean and raised singing Wesleyan hymns.
DEVOTED writes their own music and it’s firmly Bible-based. They sing with power and conviction. In 2016 Edmund and Gisela’s daughter Geneva and cousin Arletha joined the ministry, making DEVOTED a foursome.
DEVOTED is a singing and preaching Ministry. An ordained minister, Edmund has been preaching since the age of fourteen. The group most often provides music and Edmund preaches the Word when they are invited to minster at worship services.
