    musical guest: jonathan wilburn

    The name Wilburn has been a part of the music industry for several years. It seems as though when you mention this family, people recognize that you are talking about music. Not just any music, but Gospel Music, that is sang from the heart. Jonathan Wilburn has taken the stage with his family The Wilburns and Gold City Quartet. His tenure in Gospel music has brought him close to the heart of people from all ages. Jonathan states "Gospel Music is my way of telling people what Jesus means to me". You will definitely understand what he is talking about the moment you have the experience of watching this seasoned veteran perform. It seems as though the fans agree, for Jonathan has been nominated and voted America’s #1 lead vocalist five times by the subscribers of The Singing News magazine. "My goal was never set on winning any award. I just wanted to sing and pray God would use my efforts to bring a little joy to somebody". His singing started at a young age sitting beside his mother in church. Jonathan says "My greatest influence in singing was my mom (Elaine Wilburn)." "She sings alto like nobody else." After a long and fruitful time with his family group Jonathan became part of one of the most award winning Gospel groups of all time "Gold City Quartet". During his tenure of over 12 years this group experienced continued success with Jonathan as the group’s lead vocalist. Tim Riley says this about Jonathan, "He (Jonathan) is a Spirit filled singer with great energy on stage and I would recommend Wilburn&Wilburn for any church or promoter".

    musical guest: gold city

    Every musical genre has its artists who defy the norms of the average life span of a career. Whether it’s the Eagles in rock music or country’s mainstay, The Oak Ridge Boys, there are those who rise to legendary status and continue to make music that appeals to their generation while gathering new fans on a continual basis. Gold City is among those elite groups who continues to reach new audiences and consistently amass new fans who fall in love with their distinct sound as soon as they hear it.

    Now into their 34th year, legendary bass vocalist, 2013 Southern Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame Inductee, and multi-award-winning Tim Riley continues to anchor the group with his rich, deep, and clear bass voice. His son, Daniel Riley, bartione, has assumed the management role and leads the group onward into the future. He provides a smooth baritone vocal that blends perfectly with the other voices in the group, but also has the versatility to step out for a solo with power and soul. Lead vocalist Chip Pullen follows a long list of dynamic lead vocalist and takes a back seat to no one. Although the newest member to Gold City’s team, Chip has quickly gained fans with his commanding voice and musical delivery as well as his easy-going personality. Tenor Robert Fulton puts the top on the sound with his high clear tenor voice and sincere delivery of each song. Bryan Elliott accompanies the group with his talent and skill on the piano, providing those subtle yet effective musical enhancements for the group’s vocals–as well as shining center stage on instrumental solos.
