This group formed in 2001, is comprised of women involved in music leadership in their Tennessee Baptist churches. Female music ministers, church pianists, organists, graded choir leaders, soloists, or ensemble directors are included. A recommendation from the music minister of the church where the TLC candidate is a member is required. Singers handle their own expenses, and/or are assisted by their own church.
