Daniel Riley of Gold CityAs many of you know, Daniel Riley of Gold City had a severe injury from a fall off of a ladder on July 23, 2019. He suffered a broken wrist and complicated broken ankle.

Please Pray For Daniel Riley

Please Pray For Daniel Riley

Today, he posted some good news on Facebook:

UPDATE Thursday, August 15, 2019

My surgery on Wednesday, August 14, was successful. The surgeon was able to work around the ankle wound and make the necessary repair to the left ankle fracture, and he feels a good result was achieved. As soon as the doctor says it’s ok for me to travel, I plan to be back on the bus and stage with Gold City. I’m not sure how long that will be, but I am so very thankful for that light at the end of the tunnel from this accident. Thank you so much for praying for me and Gold City as they continue to tour and share the gospel. See you soon!

Please keep praying for Daniel Riley.

PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (September 26, 2018) –  It was a terrific Thursday filled with music and message at NQC. The day started bright and early with morning chapel service as the Mark Trammell Quartet and Mike Speck led the crowd in worship, followed by a message from one of the most dynamic preachers today, C.T. Townsend.
Moving forward into the day, Dennis Swanberg gave convention-goers a laugh-break with his comedy.

Next up was Bill Gaither and his Homecoming Friends, filling the LeConte Center with classic songs made popular on the Gaither videos.

The evening concerts were hosted by Josh Franks. Tonight’s performers were: Gaither Vocal Band, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, Hoppers, Legacy Five, Jonathan Wilburn, Gold City, Ball Brothers, Greater Vision, Tribute Quartet, Mark Trammell Quartet, Jim Brady Trio, Dr. David Jeremiah, Primitive Quartet, Three Bridges, Kingdom Heirs. Power half-hour performances by Tim Menzies, Torchmen, Jordan Family Band, Debra Perry & Jaidyn’s Call
Among tonight’s highlights were the classic harmony of the Gaither Vocal Band, and the comedy of Bill Gaither and his sidekick, Kevin Williams and the moving testimony of Josh Townsend – pianist for Legacy Five – as he told of suffering abuse at the hands of his father in the womb before he was even born. The abuse left his twin dead before birth and Josh suffered a stroke before being delivered. Due to this, doctors told his mother that he would never have use of his left hand, to which Josh testified tonight – “they were wrong.” The crowd – with tears streaming down their face – gave Townsend a standing ovation after he performed the song, “God’s Been Good.”

Coming up tomorrow, Friday, September 28, 2018:

NQC – the National Quartet Convention – was founded in 1957 by gospel music legend and former backup vocalist for Elvis Presley, J.D. Sumner who co-produced the event with James Blackwood. The annual convention was moved in later years to Nashville, TN and then to Louisville, KY where it was held for 20 years.

This week’s question is: who is your favorite Gospel Music Artist?

We will let the men go first this time:

Josh Jordan: Tough question. I find myself listening to the Cathedrals with Danny Funderburk in the lineup. Also, the original Hinsons. But I have several current groups I enjoy.

Gerald Wolfe: The Happy Goodman Family. They always had great songs, and they were exciting to watch.

Corey Pearson of the Diplomats

Corey Pearson of the Diplomats

Corey Pearson: Growing up, I listened to the Kingsmen and Gold City. Loved the bands and loved Big Jim Hamill.

Gerald Wolfe-Greater Vision

Bob Sellers: Kingsmen.

Josh Townsend: The Collingsworth Family; love the tight family harmony.

Pat Barker: The Guardians. They pay me to say that

Clayton Inman: The Hinsons; I love the electricity they brought to a stage.

 

Let’s hear from the ladies…

Jaquita Lindsey: I have so many friends that sing that’s hard for me to choose.

Wendy Hayes: The Whisnants and Greater Vision. They both have been close friends of our family for many years and we love their ministries.

 

Were these answers what you expected? The artists list some great groups in Gospel music, past and present. Maybe some of their favorite’s style or vocal inflections have rubbed off on them…we will let you decide.

Giving Back to bass singer Joseph Brown

Written by Staff on March 20, 2018 – 8:54 am -

Joseph Brown with the Diplomats

Joseph Brown with the Diplomats

Joseph Brown has been called ‘favorite bass singer ever’ by many who have heard his vocals in the past with the Diplomats, Enlisted and the Blue Sky Quartet. He also has been heard filling in for legendary Tim Riley of Gold City, as well as taking the bass part with the Inspirations and others. Brown had been with the Diplomats for eight years when he resigned at the beginning of 2014.

Joseph and his wife, Debbie, have been dealing with physical and financial hardships. Their daughters, Jamie, Jennifer, and Jessica, have set up a Go Fund Me account for those who would like to help the Browns.

For those who would like to do more than help financially, there is a way to encourage this bass singer who has spent his life encouraging others.

Modesty Lyman has posted a request on Facebook, for all of you that appreciate Joseph Brown.

Joseph and Debbie Brown

Joseph and Debbie Brown

“Many of you have had the pleasure of meeting and knowing Joseph Brown and have experienced firsthand his kind and caring spirit. He’s such a fun guy to be around, and always has a smile and encouraging word to share. He has become very dear to our family, as I know he has to many others. We’d like to do something to show him how much he means to us, the many fans and friends he’s made over the years, so we are asking anyone interested to send us a physical card for Joe which we will then forward all to him in one big package. This can be just a “thinking of you” card, a letter, photo, special memory, or anything else. We are asking that all cards be sent in by April 10th, but if you know yours will be a little late or an extension of time is needed we can add it. Joe has always been such a sweet encouragement and great friend to all who know him, let’s take this opportunity to show him how much we love and appreciate him!” posts Modesty.

“If you’d like to participate and send Joe a special card please comment, message me, or email southerngospelgazette@gmail.com, and I’ll give you the address.”

PLEASE SHARE so that others will have the same opportunity to send something in!

Gold City: Authentic and Unified

Written by Staff on January 7, 2017 – 10:37 am -

Gold City accepts Diamond Award

Gold City accepts Diamond Award

By Paige Givens

In 1980, Gold City Quartet came together for the first time and added a new blend of voices that would change gospel music. Even though the group has undergone many changes in the past 36 years, with new voices coming and going, one thing has remained the same with this celebrated group: They still sing for the same One who brought them together in the first place! Their harmony on stage is only made sweeter by their harmony off stage.

Daniel Riley, baritone and owner of Gold City, explains the group’s current lineup. “This is not a brand new group with four parts who just got together at once. Group members have come aboard to this already established group at various times. So, each member had a different start date. Joining me on stage now are tenor Thomas Nalley, lead Scott Brand, bass Chris West, and pianist Bryan Elliott.

“Scott is our newest member. He had filled in a few weeks for us and auditioned in the process, but his first official date was at the Memphis Quartet Show on June 18, 2016. I think when we brought Scott on, we all knew there was something special happening, and it still feels like that now, on stage and in the studio as we’re working on our next recording.  I’m excited about this current lineup and what I’m hearing each night. If the feedback from fans and our peers is any indication, they are excited too.”

Since its inception in 1980, this Gadsden, Alabama, group has won numerous awards from fans and the Southern Gospel music industry, has sung and recorded many number one songs, and has received prestigious honors. Yet Gold City Quartet continues to remain grounded and points all success to the Lord.
