Â Statesville, NC- Valor III has announced that beginning on November 26, 2011; legendary bass singer Ken Turner will be joining the group as their bass singer. Ronald Moore, tenor for Valor III says, “We have had the privilege of working with Ken for a few years at the Streets of Gold Concert Series with Joe Chioda. The last time that we were there, Ken sang with us on a quartet song and the rest they say is history.” Ken Turner says, “I have been in a solo ministry for 6 years and never had an interest to join another group until I heard these men. Their blend and harmonies were so tight and I knew that if I was going to sing with another group, the time was now and I am excited about joining these guys on the bus as well as on stage.”
