First Baptist Church will host a performance in Cedartown.
First Baptist Church of Cedartown will host a performance by the Gold City Quartet at 6 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 19, in the church sanctuary. No admission will be charged; a love offering will be collected. All are welcome.
Established in 1980, the Gadsden, Ala.- based Gold City Quartet delivers power-packed fourpart harmonies as they sing songs that are meaningful, entertaining, inspiring, and uplifting.
In addition to a fulltime year-round touring schedule, Gold City has a wall of awards and accolades from the past 34 years. They have recorded number one songs in each of the last four decades, their most recent being “Peter James and John” in 2012.
“We are delighted to welcome the talented Gold City Quartet to First Baptist Cedartown and invite our community to join us for the event,” said David Taylor, pastor. “I’m confident that this concert will be an enjoyable opportunity for us to worship together as we hear the good news of the gospel presented through song.”
According to the group’s website, now into their 34th year, legendary bass vocalist, 2013 Southern Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame Inductee, and multi-award-winning Tim Riley continues to anchor the group with his rich, deep, and clear bass voice.
His son, Daniel Riley, baritone, has assumed the management role and leads the group onward into the future. He provides a smooth baritone vocal that blends perfectly with the other voices in the group, but also has the versatility to step out for a solo with power and soul. Lead vocalist Chip Pullen follows a long list of dynamic lead vocalist and takes a back seat to no one.
Although the newest member to Gold City’s team, Chip has quickly gained fans with his commanding voice and musical delivery as well as his easy- going personality. Tenor Robert Fulton puts the top on the sound with his high clear tenor voice and sincere delivery of each song.
Bryan Elliott accompanies the group with his talent and skill on the piano, providing those subtle yet effective musical enhancements for the group’s vocals–as well as shining center stage on instrumental solos.”
The church is located at 101 N. Main St., Cedartown.
