Gospel Gold is a traditional
male quartet from Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The
quartet was formed by experienced singers to promote and perform a
variety of gospel music with a special focus on the old hymns and
anthems of our faith. We believe that the gospel hymn writers were
inspired men of God and the words of these songs can bring comfort and
joy to believers and lead nonbelievers to salvation. Each one of us is
committed to Christ and feel that He has called us to this ministry. Our
sincere prayer is that we can be a blessing to those who hear us and
give honor and praise to our Lord.
