Pure-n-Heart is a gospel choir comprised of kids and teens from various parts of the state of South Carolina, and neighboring cities. Pure in Heart, founded by Spartanburg native, Alphaeus Anderson has been in music ministry for over eight years and is now over joyed and reaping the rewards as the Pure-n-Heart Choir proudly receives their coveted Stellar Award in January 2012.
In a recent interview that was conducted, here is what Mr. Anderson had to say about his recent Stellar experience:
SW: Where were the awards ceremony held and how was that experience for you? The awards show was held at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, TN. It was great. It was a dream. Just to be there amongst artists like Kirk Franklin and Mary Mary and to be recognized, AND to be able to represent South Carolina was really great.
SW: What category did you win? Pure-N-Heart won Children's Youth project of the year. Which is something no other artist from SC has ever done, which makes it special. Our nomination was announced by Byron Cage, and when he announced our name, we all went crazy, jumping all around, and Byron Cage remarked about us all "showing up"!
SW:Tell us about Pure-N-Heart opportunities. We are currently accepting new members to Pure-N-Heart with the next meeting to be held at the Salvation Army KROC Center in downtown Greenville.
