I remember when I was 11 years old at the 2001 NQC. I was so excited to see the quartets I loved and the chance to meet them.
I got to meet some of my heroes that week like Jake Hess, Tim Riley, Howard and Vestal Goodman, Ray Dean Reese, Ed O’Neal, Bill Gaither, and others!
The moment that stands out the most from that week was when I got to meet my favorite singer of all time, George Younce, who was with the Old Friends Quartet at the time. He was so kind and joked around with me like George would always do.
About a year or two after that, he called to encourage me to keep on singing and follow the Lord’s guidance. He has made a lasting impact on my life.
I believe God used George Younce to influence me to sing in Gospel music. I will never forget that NQC!
