FREEDOM QUARTET was voted “Favorite New Traditional Male Quartet” by readers of Singing News Magazine. Pastors, Worship Leaders, Concert Promoters, and Gospel Music Lovers around the world agree…FREEDOM QUARTET is among Gospel Music’s finest. Though their individual accomplishments are many, with collective nominations for favorite Tenor, Lead, Bass, and even “Male Vocalist of the Year,” these guys do not boast of their accomplishments…but rather about Him who has done great things in spite of them! For these men there is no higher calling than to minister in song to the lost, the hurting, the wandering, and the downtrodden.
Freedom Quartets mission, in an increasingly hostile world, is to “encourage the church with joy through music”
As members of both the original Dove Brothers Quartet and then Palmetto State Quartet, John Rulapaugh (tenor) and Burman Porter (bass) traveled many miles together on the path that lead to the creation of FREEDOM QUARTET. Joined by famed lead singer Dale Shipley (Perfect Heart) and baritone Scott Mullins (The Greene’s), FREEDOM QUARTET has a vocal blend that is, at once, familiar and fresh. From rousing renditions of quartet standards like “Hide Thou Me,” Burman’s bass signature “Operator,” to their newest hits “To Lift Somebody Up,” and “I Am A Christian!” FREEDOM QUARTET is sure to take the audience on a musical journey through times and emotions rarely experienced.
