February is the month set aside to “formally” celebrate Black History. Most fans of traditional gospel quartet music actually celebrate Black History every time they play their favorite recording from the past. During this month, take the opportunity to share this aspect of Black History with someone. Tell them about the richness of this music. Tell them about the trails and tribulations the gospel quartet singers from the past had to endure to keep this music alive.

Tell them how
The Caravans, The Swanee Quintet, The Salem Travelers, The Dixie Hummingbirds, The Gospelaires, The Pilgrim Travelers, The Swan Silvertones, The Victory Travelers, Clara Ward, The Gospel Harmonettes, and so many others, paved the way for the gospel artists of today.  Don’t miss an opportunity to talk about the History of Gospel Music.  And, for the groups and singers that will be performing (ministering) this month, why not incorporate a song or two from the pioneers of Gospel Quartet Music into your performance (service).  What a great way to educate (or at least enlighten) your audience; and at the same time, you'll be payingng tributes to the Legends Of Quartet Gospel.

We thank God for allowing us to see this New Year - 2015. And, it is our continued prayer that it is a blessed year for all.

Two Thousand Fourteen (2014) was another year of 'ups and downs' in this genre. The good news is that there were more 'ups" than 'downs.' 

 

Many saints transitioned into eternal rest last year.  See the video at Gloryland Gospel Blog.

There were many concerts featuring gospel quartet singers during 2014.  And, there were countless anniversaries, banquets, and gathering featuring local, regional, and national gospel quartet singers.

Many gospel quartet groups released new CDs, and in some instances DVDs, last year. A 'bunch' of concert performances from 2014 showed up on YouTube.    And, the  major labels, small labels and independents ensured that there was a continuous supply of new gospel quartet music throughout the year.


Overall, 2014 was a good year for gospel quartet music. And, we look for greater and better things to come from this genre during 2015.
