“25 Days of Sharing”- Mark Lanier

Written by scoopsnews on December 23, 2018 – 8:15 am -


December is a time for sharing. At Christmas, we (Christians) celebrate The Greatest Gift of All, Jesus . We have been talking with many industry leaders, artists, pastors, promoters, etc. and asking them questions.  


Question #23 goes to Mark Lanier.

Mark was a member of the group , “Perfect Heart” from 1990-1997.

Their song, “ Somebody Touched the Lord” was a former Singing News song of the year.

Mark, something new is happening this year at The Memphis Quartet Show? In 10 seconds or less, can you tell us?

Brian Free & Assurance Announce New Baritone

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on May 23, 2013 – 8:12 am -

MikeDouglasville, GA – Brian Free announced today a decision has been made in filling the baritone position. Joining the BFA family will be Mike Rogers of Kinston, NC who fans will recognize from his recent position as lead singer for the Dixie Melody Boys. Mike will join the group on June 20th at the Memphis Quartet Show.

Twenty-four year old Mike shares, “The warmth and humility from Brian and the guys when I auditioned made me feel this was truly a God-thing, and confirmed for me that I wanted to be a part of their ministry. BFA is very family-oriented, which means a lot to me. Ministry is important, but after God, family is top priority. Quartet music doesn’t get any better than BFA. They are top notch, and I am honored to join them.”

Brian states, “When I received the audition info for Mike I was very impressed with his vocal ability and the gift to deliver a song. After spending some time with him, his wife Bekki and daughter Coraline at my home, I knew he was the one God had sent to be a member of our family. I love his heart and the love he has for people. He will be a wonderful addition to BFA.

Having over 300 people apply for the job, it was a hard decision due to all the talent I heard. I want to thank each person who took their time and effort to apply for the position. I am truly honored that so many wanted to be a part of our ministry. I know God has a place and time for you to use your talent for him.”

Brian Free & Assurance’s first single I Want To Be That Man off their current project, Nothing But Love, went to number one the month of February on the Singing News Charts. Their follow up single, Calvary’s Cry has quickly climbed the charts and currently holds number six for the month of May.
