In June 1980, Sacred Harpers traveled to Birmingham, Alabama for four days of fellowship and singing at the First National Sacred Harp Sing at Samford University. As secretary of the Sacred Harp Publishing Company, Hugh McGraw was instrumental in organizing the event. The convention is still in existence today and is attended by singers from across the globe.
