An Open Letter from Claude Johnson

 

 

 

June 10, 2015

Dear Friends,

For the last several months, I have been praying and contemplating a difficult decision concerning my future with the Wanda Mountain Boys. For the past 25 years, I have been fortunate enough to travel throughout the midwest and share the stage with some wonderful Christian gentlemen. With that being said, I feel like it is time for me to step aside as manager and baritone singer for the Wanda Mountain Boys. This change will take place immediately.

I have enjoyed the journey that the group has taken me on and look forward to the next chapter for the Wanda Mountain Boys. I will be turning the group over to Gary O'Neal. I feel like Gary's years of experience in Gospel Music and knowledge will allow the group to maintain the reputation and high standards that we have tried to maintain through the years.

Rick Brown will remain with the group, singing tenor, and they are currently auditioning singers to fill my position. The group plans to fulfill all dates that the group has scheduled and will be taking booking engagements for future dates. Please contact Gary O'Neal at 1-636-524-1354 or Rick Brown at 1-636-671-4134 with any concerns or if you would want to postpone their future engagement, otherwise, they will consider the date to remain active.

Please continue to pray for the Wanda Mountain Boys as they make this transition and know that in my heart, I will always be a Wanda Mountain Boy.

Best Regards,
Claude Johnson

    You will surely be missed Claude. Wanda Mountain Boys hasn't been quite the same for me since Rod died. Miss him still. I hope you enjoy your retirement, but can't imagine that you will quit singing.
