DETROIT GREATS OF GOSPEL MUSIC Opening Night Friday May 12, 2017 5pm - 8pm
For over three years David Clements has been documented Detroit gospel quartet music. A delightful audience, generous musicians, informative broadcasters and a lot of ministers.
Every Sunday afternoon between 4-5 p a gospel musical review is produced with the help of a church and staff, musicians, radio personalities, and the dedication of the Detroit United Quartet Ministry. All supported by an active audience.
Quartet music is a fluid term. It refers not only to four vocalists, but to a performing group. Amazingly, many quartets are multigenerational and have a recording and performance history spanning of 30 to 60 years.
Detroit has always been known as a center for black gospel music. Hundreds of artists have come out of Detroit to become recognized regional and national acts.
The Opening night will feature The Masters of Harmony, an acapella gospel quartet led by Mr. Kelly Thomas at 7:00 pm. Mr. Thomas has led an acapella gospel quartet in Detroit since 1926 and is 103 years old.
