July is here!!! It just does not seem that six (6) months of 2014 is in the history book. There have been a lot of activities relating to quartet gospel during the past six (6) months.  We have been introduced to new projects from independents and major labels.  There have been lots of gospel quartet concerts. And, sadly, there have been many deaths in the gospel quartet community.

But, it is reassuring to know that God is still in charge. And, knowing that will allow us to move forward into the last six (6) months of 2014 and rejoice in all of the good things that are sure to come our way.
