Welcome to SGN Scoops’ Fast Five! Our guests today are Higher Ground. It has been said that there is a Gospel singer under every tree in North Carolina, and this mixed trio is from that prolific state. They have been in existence since 2002, with the newest member arriving just four months ago. Tight harmony and mature vocals invoke the sound of traditional Southern Gospel, in the style of the Speer Family or the Chuck Wagon Gang.
Listen to the music of Higher Ground and you will have no doubt about the heart of these artists. They sing for Jesus and their songs reflect His love.
Let’s find out more about Higher Ground in this SGN Scoops’ Fast Five.

Wewere doing a little shopping and the guys dared me to get on one of those little horses out in front of the stores. Well, you know me, I did and it was on.
