Angels will sing in Beaufort this weekend.

On Saturday, "The Angels Sang" tour will perform at the University of South Carolina Beaufort Center for the Arts.

Chattanooga, Tenn.-based Christian record label Morning Song Music has had a national Christmas tour for 10 years. This is the first time the tour has come to Beaufort County.

Steve Darmody, president of Morning Song Music and the concert's lead vocalist, likens the event to a TV Christmas variety show. The concert includes traditional Christmas carols as well as contemporary and original songs.

Above all, the concert is about lifting up the true meaning of Christmas.

"I think one of the great messages we're giving is that there is nothing in life that is so dark or desperate or sinful that God isn't willing to walk in and embrace you," Darmody said. "And if someone has wandered away from the Lord during the year, we hope this concert will be a reminder that Christ has come to have a relationship with us all."

The show features four singers, each accomplished in the gospel music scene: Darmody; Jennifer LaMountain of Orlando, Fla.; Rudy Micelli of Los Angeles; and Angela Bryant-Brown of Washington, D.C.

"These are amazing artists that have been selected based on their skill set and vocal range," Darmody said. "We've brought together these talented singers to present the wonderful story of our Savior's birth."

The concert ends with an eight-minute medley arranged by the Prague Symphony specifically for "The Angels Sang" tour and its orchestra.

"And that is one of the greatest moments," Darmody said.
