King's Heralds

The internationally acclaimed King's Heralds quartet brings to the stage a seventy-year heritage in gospel music.  Founded in Keene, Texas in 1927 by four young college students, the group has come to be recognized world-wide for their blend and musical expertise.  This “trans-denominational” group has toured not only the United States, but the islands of the Caribbean, all of Latin America, the South pacific, Australia, the Orient and Africa.  Among their audiences have been heads of state, king’s, presidents, governors, ambassadors and other dignitaries. Regular television guests on the “Praise The Lord Show” on the Trinity Broadcasting Network, the quartet also appears on the “It Is Written” telecast with Mark Finley.  Their own radio program, “The Sound Of Praise” received top honors – a "Silver Angel Award" – as "Best International Broadcast" from Excellence In Media. The King's Heralds quartet has shared their music before the Christian Booksellers Association, the National Association of Evangelicals, the National Association of Religious Broadcasters, the Protestant Health and Welfare Association, the Greater Pittsburgh Charismatic Conference and the Baptist World Alliance. 

The quartet is the first Christian gospel group from the West to tour The People’s Republic of China since 1949, singing for the "First Invitational Symposium on the Christian Church in China" sponsored by the US/China Education Foundation.  In 2001 the King's Heralds presented 19 concerts in the Republic of Cuba with the Spanish Christian Radio Broadcast “La Voz de la Esperanza”. The quartet have received twenty-three "Silver Angel Award", including six for "Best Male Vocal Group" and fourteen for "Best Album".  The group also received a "Gold Angel Award" in recognition for their being the oldest, continuous Gospel Quartet in America. The quartet perform in a variety of musical styles, making them a favorite with audiences of all ages.  Their rich blend, harmony and balance as interpreted through their well-known acapella singing creates a rich musical experience.  A portion of every concert is devoted to children, making their concerts a “fun-time” for the whole family. Twenty-nine men have been a part of the King's Heralds quartet since its foundation in 1927.  They have recorded in 30 languages, on over 100 albums and toured over fifty countries.  Their music is treasured by people all over the world, from the highlands of Papua New Guinea to the steps of Russia, to Punta Arenas in Chile.

Group members: Don Scroggs, Joel Borg, Russell Hospedales and Jeff Pearle

Encores

Walk In Jerusalem
Now Don't you Let Nobody Turn You 'Round
Good News, Chariot's A-Comin'
If We Ever Need The Lord Before
A New Name In Glory
Children Keep In The Middle Of The Road
O Lord Of Space
Walk That Milky White Way
Just A Little Talk With Jesus
Old Time Religion
Prayer Of Our Lord Jesus
Champion Of Love
Two Wings
Reprise Walk In Jerusalem

It's pretty clear from the first few notes from Simi Valley, CA's honey-voiced veteran male Gospel quartet The King's Heralds that we're in for a treat. "Encores" is all about spirituals: "Walk in Jerusalem Just Like John," "Now Don't You Let Nobody Turn You 'Round," "Good News, Chariot's A-Comin'," "(If We Ever Needed the Lord Before) We Sure Do Need Him Now," "There's A New Name In Glory," "Children Keep In the Middle of the Road"… this is inspirational Gospel sung with some of the best deep-bass harmonies we've heard. But it's the feeling behind the music, the spiritual mission of the aptly named King's Heralds that takes "Encores" beyond the usual. Their powerful belief, joyous words and sweet harmonies make this CD very special indeed!

The heritage of the ministry of the Thousand-Oaks, CA-based male Gospel quartet King's Heralds goes back to four young college students who came together to sing in Keene, Texas in 1927, and continues today for the present King's Heralds, the oldest continuous Gospel Quartet in America. Twenty-nine men have been a part of the quartet, and they have recorded in 30 languages, on over 100 albums and toured over fifty countries. The current members, Don, Joel, Russell and Jeff, have 5 excellent CDs and one DVD in the PAC catalog. There are 16 classic tunes here, from the accompanied, jazzy "City of Light," the a cappella spiritual "You Better Mind," and the richly harmonic "I'd Rather Have Jesus" to the lightly accompanied "One Thing I Ask," "Pass Me Not," and the spirituals "Just a Little While," and the a cappella "Si'Down Servant," this is all spirited, deeply-felt, beautifully sung Gospel music. The a cappella songs "In a Little While We're Going Home" and "There Must Be A City" are simply beautiful. Much more accompaniment than we're used to with the King's Heralds, but the vocals and harmonies are as wonderful as ever!
