ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Though the Gospel Harmony Boys were organized in Huntington, WV in 1952, they are as current and as full of life as today's music. Throughout their 61 year history, this group of professional men has been given many honors and attained many goals. These include the distinction of being the first gospel quartet to ever appear on live network television as guests of Dave Garroway on NBC's “Today Show” in 1952. They hosted the nation’s first weekly scheduled gospel music television program that was broadcast for nearly two decades and became regular viewing for more than a million families in West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky and Virginia. And today, their ministry continues to impact thousands of individuals through radio, TV and the worldwide web.

The "Harmony Boys" were pioneers in gospel recordings releasing their first 78rpm recording in 1953 and their first LP album in 1961. Their current recordings are often found on today's national gospel music charts. Amid the group’s credits are numerous appearances with hundreds of famous entertainers from the gospel, country and pop fields. They have participated in the National Quartet Convention for many years and have been recognized in Gospel Music's top trade publication, as one of America's leading groups based on the "quality of their live performances and recently released recordings." Jerry Kirksey, past editor of “The Singing News”, described them as "the epitome of class and style”.

The Gospel Harmony Boys have been recognized and honored by their home state by being named West Virginia's Official Ambassadors of Goodwill and the Governor has declared August 1st as Gospel Harmony Boys Day in West Virginia. They hold the state’s highest civilian honor, the Distinguished West Virginian Award and they were also commissioned by the Governor of Kentucky as “Kentucky Colonels”. Most recently, in tribute to their Christian service and contributions to the ministry of gospel music, the Gospel Harmony Boys were inducted into the Christian Music Hall of Fame in Dallas, TX and were nominees for the Artist Music Guild’s “Vocal Group of the Year in 2013”.

Whether on Main Street, a fair's grandstand, a revival tent or a wonderful community church, a Gospel Harmony Boys concert or CD will provide the opportunity to enjoy an experience with the Holy Spirit while listening to the glorious message of God’s love through the presentation of this renowned music ministry. The outstanding vocal arrangements of the GHBs includes many happy, hand-clapping rhythms, soul stirring ballads, traditional gospel classics, and always some great old hymns. But their mission never changes and that is to represent Christ in a positive and powerful way so others can see Him through their ministry.
When you hear the Gospel Harmony Boys and experience the joy and blessings of great Gospel Music, you'll understand the high demand that is made of this amazing quartet.
