loryland Gospel Quartet Radio June 2012 Celebration of African American Music MonthPresident Jimmy Carter, by Executive Order, designated June as Black Music Month. For the past 28 years, presidents have announced to Americans that we should celebrate Black Music during the month of June. For each year of his term, President Barack Obama has announced the observance, under the new title, African-American Music Appreciation Month. 

During this month, we encourage you to celebrate gospel quartet music by sharing the music with others.  Take every opportunity to engage in a conversation about gospel quartet music.  There is a rich history to this music.  Do you part and share the music.

Jehovah Praise, Tampa, Florida, Rev. Roy Reed & The Zion Jubilees, Bryan, Texas, The Miller Singers, Birmingham, Alabama, The Rising Star Singers, Eastover, South Carolina, Jimmy & Darlene HarrisonSharp Records was formed in 1994 by Tony Sharper. Many may not have heard of this label. That is about to change. Sharp Records is not just a gospel label. They have artists from all of the major genres, including Country and R & B.

They are the home of numerous gospel artists. As to the Quartet Gospel genre, they have groups like The Gospel Songbirds of Meridian, Mississippi, The Miracle Wonders, The Soulful Sunlighters of Griffin, Georgia, and The Jacksonaires of Star City, Arkansas.

Today we received CDs from Sharp on Jehovah Praise, Tampa, Florida, Rev. Roy Reed & The Zion Jubilees, Bryan, Texas, The Miller Singers, Birmingham, Alabama, The Rising Star Singers, Eastover, South Carolina, and Jimmy & Darlene Harrison. Let’s take a look at two (2) of them.

Jehovah Praise’s I Need You Right Now consists of six (6) songs. The lead singers are Patricia Hackshaw and Betty Jean Fletcher. The word “Praise” in the group’s name is very appropriate. For, the project could be described as good Praise and Worship by a gospel quartet group.

The Miller Singers CD is titled It’s Getting Late In The Evening. This is a seven (7) track project. Listening to this project reminds us that there are good gospel singers all around this country that are rarely knew beyond their hometown. Well, for some good down home gospel singing by a group you may not have heard before get the CD by The Miller Singers. Just listen to their rendition of “It’s Getting Late In The Evening” and you will be convinced it is time for them to be introduced to the world.
