    Southern food is inherently comforting – especially when done well. Add some upbeat, uplifting music and you’re in the perfect place to feed your body AND your soul. The gospel brunch at the Hamilton sounds great – and we’ve been dying to try it with our daughter!

    Late summer was a tough time and I feel like having a gospel brunch would bring a lot of joy to my heart. Besides, there’s nothing better than comfort food, great music and being surrounded by your friends!

    The two things complement each other perfectly. Gospel is a rich, fulfilling art-form, and a Southern buffet is traditionally comfort food. It would leave you fulfilled body and soul, without a doubt.

    Gospel songs focus on many of the highest themes known to mankind – songs of Salvation, the Cross, the Resurrection, and eternity. Buffets focus on on many of the greatest themes known to MY kind, Buttermilk Biscuits, Sausage Gravy, Bacon, and Fried Chicken. The 2 together should feed my soul appropriately. :)

    Sunday dinner with family is a tradition that transcends time – it’s so special And, southern cuisine has a way of warming your stomach, spirit and soul. Just think of the Sunday scenes from the movie/tv show “Soul Food”. That’s what it’s all about: sharing, caring….and grubbing!! Gospel music does the same thing that soul food does – it feeds the soul. And, that’s what makes Sunday that day of the week that you really look forward to when you get both your soul and your body well fed.

    Food nourishes the body and recharges us – music and poetry and art feed the soul. The combination of food and gospel is the ultimate experience for filling up the body both physically and mentally. The essence of Southern values and tradition is steeped in that sense of food and music bringing the community together to experience this nourishment together!

    A southern buffet means homey, comforting, delicious food that tantalizes your taste buds, warms your heart, and makes your stomach satisfied! The gospel show moves you, inspires you, and makes you feel alive!

    Southern food = comfort food! All that butter and all those carbs….mmmmm :) It’s not healthy, but it’ll make any day better.

    Gospel is a really cool addition to make you forget that life is usually incredibly busy and that you’re always on-the-go!

    It would be like a mini vacation vacation from the outside world, a few hours of rejuvenation. Southern Food = Comfort food (and really cant be beat!). Gospel music always speaks directly to the soul, so its just an all around great combination!
