About Driven Quartet
Based out of Charlotte, North Carolina, Driven is not new to Southern Gospel music. Collectively, this group of young men has been singing professionally for over 20 years. Their resumes include such groups as Danny Funderburk & Mercy’s Way, The Anchormen, and Lumber River. In 2006, this group of young men, through prayer, stepped out on faith and commenced their new full time career. Heeding to the call on their lives to present the Gospel through music, these four gentlemen created Driven Ministries.
