For Immediate Release-June 9, 2008
Jerry W. Goode, President
Nu Horizon Booking & Management
It is with great Sadness that The Christianaires announce that Paul Porter
is leaving the group to pursue a Solo Career. Paul is one of the founding
members of The Christianaires and has been a key component and featured
Artist for almost thirty years.
During that time they have become one of the top Quartet groups in the
world. In 2007 the group was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame
and is widely known for their electrifying and anointed performances.
The sadness in this occasion comes with the knowledge that Paul has been
an intricate part of the Groupís difficult struggle to prominence in the
Gospel Music Industry. While it is always difficult and painful to part
with those that have helped fight the odds and defied the nay Sayers, it
is also gratifying, when you see that person spread their wings and soar
to new heights.
The Christianaires wish Paul the very best. Our thoughts and prayers will
always be with him as he moves on to face new challenges. We feel honored
and blessed to have had the opportunity to share many things with Paul.
His love and friendship will always be treasured.
This occurrence also affords The Christianaires an opportunity to grow.
Tyrone Porter, Ronald Brown, Charles Porter and Christopher Dean are as
committed as ever to continuing the music ministry in the same tradition
that has personified The Christianaires over the last twenty five years.
They will continue to tour and expect to begin recording their next
project in the near future.
Charles Porter will take the helm as their featured/primary lead singer.
The Christianaires are also actively seeking an additional lead singer.
Interested parties, please contact Nu Horizon Booking & Management (fax

To their many fans and supporters, they say Thank You and God Bless. They
solicit your prayers, patience and continued support.
