"However, from a vocal perspective, Velma (Loretta Williams Gurnell) is the show's star. Her strong vocal range coupled with her exquisite style is breathtaking. Velma is the obvious rebel of the group, adding her own flair to timeless traditional songs such as "His Eye Is On The Sparrow" as well as her hats, which are always the most trendy. Within moments of each song, Gurnell has the audience members clapping their hands and sometimes singing along to the timeless traditions she offers." - The Daily Cougar Online


"Loretta Gurnell stops the show with a blistering rendition of "His Eye Is On The Sparrow" - Houston Press
