STAN WATSON LEAVES MASTER'S VOICE

STAN WATSON LEAVES MASTER’S VOICE

We want to thank Stan Watson for the years of service here with the group. It is bittersweet when change occurs. We are sad to not be traveling with our brother any longer, and at the same time, we are looking forward to the next chapter for both MV and Stan.

“Stan had a strong influence here, and we will forever be grateful for the wonderful opportunity to minister with this man. Make no mistake everyone – Stan will forever be a member of Master’s Voice.” – Ricky Capps

We love you Stan. You are already missed.

Pray for MV as we transition to the next guy God has here. More news to come…

JOEY JOHNSON RESIGNS MASTER’S VOICE

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on August 1, 2014 – 10:33 am -

Joey Johnson

Joey Johnson

For seven years, Master’s Voice has had the honor and privilege of having Mr. Joey Johnson as baritone. Audiences quickly fell in love with this man’s voice and ability to connect…which is why it is so bittersweet that we announce that Joey will be stepping down from MV at the end of August.

“This past year has been a challenging one for me and my family, and I know that the right thing for me to do is to come off the road and pour everything I have into them,”  says Joey.

Though change can be a sad and scary thing, we have great solace in knowing that God is at work in all this and this didn’t surprise Him. Be in prayer for Joey as he embarks on this new chapter in life. Likewise- pray for MV as we wait patiently for The Lord to send us our next singer! We love you all and appreciate your continued support.

If you are interested in applying for the position, email 2 songs, a picture of yourself and your “story” along with your contact information to: mastersvoiceacc@yahoo.com  Website http://www.mastersvoice.com
