Nashville, TN (July 1,2013) Earlier this year multi-talented Bass singer Gene McDonald had the privilege of singing Bass with the sensational award winning Oak Ridge Boys. With Bass singer Richard Sturbin out of commission with a foot surgery the Oaks called upon Gene McDonald to sing the Bass notes for them.
Gene said “Singing with the Oaks is always special, but this time we sang for the 88 year old President George H.W. Bush and his lovely wife Barbara at their home in Houston, TX.”
It would seem that the former President’s favorite song of the Oaks is “Elvira” and Gene can cover those low bass notes with ease. It would seem that every time President Bush hears those sweet harmonies mixed with the tune of “Elvira” his spirits are lifted.
Now that the excitement of singing for the Bush’s is over, Gene is back to singing on the stage as the featured Bass singer at all of the Gaither Homecoming Concerts.
