Gaither Homecoming Background
The story of how the Gaither Vocal Band came to be dates back to the early 80s when Steve Green, Lee Young, Gary McSpadden and Bill Gaither gathered around a piano backstage before a Bill Gaither Trio concert. They were singing "Your First Day in Heaven," having fun, when Gaither spontaneously decided they should put their sound to the test in front of a live audience that night. The audience loved it, and that spur-of-the-moment performance cemented the beginning of it all.
They released their first album, The New Gaither Vocal Band, in 1981. A year later, Young exited the group, and Jon Mohr joined the band as the new bass singer.
They then cut their next album, Passin' The Faith Along. Eventually, Steve Green departed from the group, and Larnelle Harris was hired on to replace him. This group recorded the New Point Of View album prior to Mohr's exit.
The band's lineup continued to change over the years. But three decades later, the Gaither Vocal Band continues to take harmony to a whole new level. They have crafted a legacy of chart-busting success and Grammy-winning excellence.
Over the years, many of gospel music's most celebrated voices have been a part of the Gaither Vocal Band, including Steve Green, Jon Mohr, Gary McSpadden, Larnelle Harris, Mark Lowry, Lemuel Miller, Michael English, Terry Franklin, David Phelps, Russ Taff, Marshall Hall, Lee Young, Wes Hampton and Guy Penrod.
A Reunion of Gaither Vocal Band alumni DVD arrived in January 2009, which skyrocketed to the top of Billboard Magazine's Music Video charts and remained there for four weeks in a row. The DVD also peaked on the Christian and Southern Gospel audio charts.
Today, the Gaither Vocal Band lineup consists of frontman Bill Gaither, David Phelps, Wes Hampton, Mark Lowry and Michael English. Together, the Gaither Vocal Band is recognized around the globe for their authentic brand of music with spine-tingling vocals, innovative harmonies and life-changing meaning – a message of hope, grace and salvation.
"God is up to something here," said Bill Gaither. "I continue to be amazed at the extraordinary ways He communicates the power of the Gospel not only through our music, but through our lives. The simple messages I first started writing about as a wide-eyed, young musician hold truer to me today than ever before … and it is truly about much more than the music."
