The Ozarka College Foundation will host multi-Dove Award winning recording artists, The Martins, in Mountain View on Sunday, Aug. 12 at 2:30 p.m. at The Ozark Folk Center, 1032 Park Avenue. The group Pamela G and Jackie B of Mountain View will perform as the opening act.

The Martins, who began their career in Arkansas, have performed on the Gaither Homecoming stages, at Carnegie Hall, The Grand Ole Opry and the White House.

During the 1990s, The Martins rose to national and international success, showcasing their stunning and distinctive harmonies before an array of audiences. Over the years, the trio garnered six Dove Awards from the Gospel Music Association, a Grammy nomination and multiple hit songs.

Siblings, Judy, Jonathan and Joyce, recently released their first album in a decade. "New Day" is filled with all new songs, featuring the trio's unmistakable harmonies, and was produced by multi-platinum selling Rascal Flatts member Jay DeMarcus.

All proceeds from the concert will benefit the Kenneth and Janice Sutton Scholarship Endowment at Ozarka College. Once the $10,000 endowment is met, a Stone County student will benefit from the financial assistance.

The Suttons are life-long residents of Mountain View and Stone County. They are former owners of Mountain View Telephone, and are avid supporters of health care and education in the area. They have sponsored Ozarka College scholarships, in the past, to benefit Stone County students.

Tickets are general admission, and are on sale at all Ozarka College locations, as well as at www.ozarka.edu. All tickets sold prior to the event are $15 and will be $20 at the door. Children 16 and under get in for $5.

The Ozarka College Foundation is a private 501 (c) (3) organization and donations are tax deductible as allowed by IRS regulations.
