Grammy- and Dove award-winning singer Russ Taff will appear in concert at Christian Community Church, Stoystown, at 7 p.m. Saturday.

Taff, 65, first gained recognition as a singer as a member of the Imperials in the 1970s. He later joined the Gaither Vocal Band and continues to make guest appearances for Gaither Homecoming concerts.

As a solo artist, Taff won Grammy awards in 1983 and 1991. He was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame with other members of the Imperials in 1998.

In October 2018, a documentary about Taff’s troubled childhood and battle with alcoholism was released in theaters for a one-day showing. The film, “I Still Believe,” is now available on DVD on his website.

Tickets for the concert are $10 and can be purchased by calling 814-288-4288 or 814-443-4061.

Christian Community Church is located at 2610 Lincoln Highway (U.S. Route 30), a quarter mile west of Route 219 near Boswell.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
