---- — Ann Downing, a popular soloist on the Gaither Homecoming Video Series, will appear Aug. 11 at First Pentecostal Assembly of God located on 733 Church St. in Ottumwa. The concert is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.

Celebrating world-wide broadcast success, including the number one spot on Billboard Magazine’s chart for video sales (surpassing all other categories and genres of music), Ann has been included in almost all video tapings since their original success in 1991. “Reunion”, the second video released, is dedicated to the memory of Paul Downing who appears on the video but passed away unexpectedly prior to the release date.

Her career as a successful Christian recording artist has taken Ann from childhood on the family cotton farm in rural Mississippi to many of the nation’s largest venues including Carnegie Hall, the Crystal Cathedral and the Billy Graham Crusade in Nashville. Ann Downing Ministries is also home to the Ms. Lillie Project, a service ministry to nursing homes, the goal of which is to provide televisions, DVD players, and Gaither Homecoming Videos to facilities across the country. In addition, Ann Downing Ministries also helps to host Ann’s Middle Tennessee Women’s Retreat (MTWR). MTWR is an annual event held in the Nashville area each spring and is open to women regardless of age or denominational ties.
