August 1, 2008, Thurmont, MD. WTHU’s PGIF (Praise God It’s Friday) is proud to host another unique Christian music talent. Although they have been singing and making music for years, they are rarely heard together as their lives have taken different paths – The Lazo Sisters will be the in-studio artists on PGIF’s Friday, August 15 show.
Ana Lazo Eastep speaks for her sisters:
We don't have any CDs - we merely sing together when we have the opportunity. We grew up in a strong faith-based family where music was a large part of our lives. Both our parents play instruments and they provided the means for all six of us (the kids) to express ourselves musically. We used to sing with our father in the church folk group years ago. Our three brothers each play instruments and one sings as well.
Nowadays, we get together every so often for friends and family weddings/parties/memorial services and sing together for the love of music. The songs we sing have been recorded by artists such as Kathy Mattea, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Peter Mayer, Mad Agnes and the like.
Individually, I sing with the All Saints Church (Frederick, MD) Great Hall Choir. My sister Elena sings with the Frederick Chorale Arts Society, with her company pick-up band and a local Frederick acappella group. My sister Monica canters for her church in Catonsville.
The Lazo Sisters in birth order: Ana Lazo Eastep, Elena Lazo and Monica Lazo Gage. The blending of these sisters’ voices produces harmonies as you’ve never heard. What a treat to be able to hear them live (1450am) and online (http://www.wthu.org)! This is a rare opportunity.
PGIF gives a new venue to Christian artists in an unplugged setting. Each session is recorded for a special PGIF café compilation CD to be offered in the future.
PGIF is a variety show hosted by Donna & Michael on WTHU 1450am Fridays from 7-9:00pm. Join them weekly for a fun evening with tidbits of news, bible quiz, odd facts, wacky uses, great music, frequent in-studio concerts and always fun.
