The Starlights - It's Alright

         


As we continue to thank God for allowing us to see another year let us remember to pray for the entire gospel music industry. It is the prayer of Gloryland Gospel that each and every artist presented throughout this year, and who continue to proclaim the Word of our Lord and Savior in song, will sincerely seek God in every action throughout the year.  Below you will find the latest in Gospel Quartet Industry News.

July is here. There have been a lot of activities relating to quartet gospel during the past six (6) months.  There have been lots of gospel quartet concerts. And, sadly, there have been many deaths in the quartet gospel community.

But, it is reassuring to know that God is still in charge. And, knowing that will allow us to move forward into the next six (6) months of 2016 and enjoying great gospel quartet music along the way.

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 trials and tribulations the gospel quartet singers from the past had to endure to keep this music alive.

Tell them how
The Bells Of Joy, The Caravans, The Sensational Nightingales, 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.  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.

Robert Williams’ Nu Gospel Keynotes

 

“Sang Robert!” was the command fans heard the late Willie Neal Johnson shout with such fervent passion at Robert Williams that we encouraged Robert from our church, auditorium and stadium seats to sing as if his life was in jeopardy. Robert Williams, Andrč Ellis (Smile-E), Michael “Face” Palmer and the Nu Gospel Keynotes' band will be singing with that same passion for years to come.

We thank God for allowing us to see this New Year - 2016. And, it is our continued prayer that it is a blessed year for all.

Two Thousand Fifteen (2015) was another year of 'ups and downs' in this genre. The good news is that, once again,  there were more 'ups" than 'downs.' 

 

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

There were many concerts featuring gospel quartet singers during 2015.  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.  And, the  major labels, small labels and independents ensured that there was a continuous supply of new gospel quartet music throughout the year.


Overall, 2015 was a good year for gospel quartet music. And, we look for greater and better things to come from this genre during 2016.
