Lesbian woman, transgender woman and gay man breaking through Gospel barriers
Micahâ€™s Rule, a Christian Gospel trio hailing from Wilmington, N.C., will perform at the Metropolitan Community Church of Charlotte, 1825 Eastway Dr., on March 23, 7 p.m.
The trio, which formed in January 2012, is breaking barriers, aided by the three membersâ€™ past musical experience.
The group is comprised of Greg McCaw, Chasity Scott and Mary Ann Hewett. Each grew up singing in the church. McCaw performed bass with Southern Gospel stars like Bill and Gloria Gaither and the Gatlin Brothers. Scott has a doctorate in music education from Harvard. Hewett has enjoyed the inspiration of music her entire life.
The group recently cut an album produced by Mark Moseley, a Nashville producer who has created albums for Dolly Parton, George Jones, Vince Gill, Patty Loveless and Willie Nelson.
One of their singles, â€śYour Cries Have Awoken the Master,â€ť in their new album, â€śWalk the Road,â€ť is particularly powerful, speaking to the struggles of LGBT people of faith.
