Soul’d Out was formed in 2001 and their mission is “to further strengthen and encourage the people of God to be salt and light to the world”. The group sang throughout the region, including Sidney, Marysville and Fletcher.
The trio currently consists of Jason McAtee, Philip Kolb and Matt Rankin. McAtee is originally from Godfrey, Illinois, and in addition to singing, he plays a variety of instruments. Kolb resides in Hagerstown, Indiana, and wrote the band’s latest release, “He Said I Could Come”, which can be heard on YouTube and Soul’d Out’s website, Soul’d Out Trio.com.
Rankin was the heart and soul of this ministry as well as the founder of Soul’d Out. The Washington Courthouse is his home. Asked about their performance at Winner Harvest Barn, he said: “We are honored to be part of this benefit for Morgan’s Place Cemetery.”
Morgan’s Place is the vision of Mollie and Nathan Verdier. Currently under construction on State Road 589 southeast of Sidney, its goal is “to help bereaved families through the grieving process of losing a baby.” Funeral services and support groups will be available for those who have lost a child to miscarriage or stillbirth. Aborted babies can also find peace at Morgan’s Place.
Advance tickets are $25 each.
