About Us

Gospel Gold is a traditional four part 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.
