As with most anything there are seasons of change. The Ascension Quartet has been in the midst of one of those seasons of change for the last month or so and while it's never fun to make changes (let's face it, none of us really like change), we're sad to announce the departures of Bruce Horton and Lathan Moore who have been a part of the group for 2 and 3 years respectively. We want to thank Bruce and Lathan for their time in ministry with the quartet. They've both been a huge part of the group and we wish them the best in all that they do. With their help, both of our last 2 singles made it into the Singing News Top 80 charts.
As to the future, The Ascension Quartet is excited to announce our 2 newest members. The first person we'd like to introduce to you is our new lead singer, Chris Judy. Chris is no stranger to Southern Gospel music and has been singing all of his life in and around his hometown of Lebanon, MO it's only fitting that The Ascension Quartet should, again, have a member from Lebanon since the group started in Lebanon and was home to the quartet for several decades. Chris has been on stage with us a couple of times already and we're excited to get him out there with us all the time. Check our schedule and come out to see us when you can. We'd love to see you. You can see more of Chris on our website by going to www.theascensionquartet.com.
Our second new member is also no stranger to Southern Gospel music. Matt Brooks hails from Rolla, MO but he started singing years ago in his home town of Salem, MO. He has previously sung with Second Coming from Salem, MO and The Heritage Boys from Rolla, MO. Matt is a graduate of the Steve Hurst School of music and we're excited for you to get to meet he and his wife Angela. Check our website for more biographical information on both Chris and Matt then come out to see us soon. We think you're gonna like what you hear
