Southern Sound's Alan Brewster Inducted

August 11 2014 (Ft. Oglethorpe, GA) Phenomenal Bass singer Alan Brewster of Southern Sound Quartet received the high honor of being inducted as an individual into the Tri-State Gospel Music Hall of Fame in Ft. Oglethorpe, GA. This Georgia native is known for his motivation in business, and his low voice that every great quartet needs.

Southern Sound Lead singer and Manager, Ben Harris said, “Although Alan remained a board member of the group during his three year absence, he was of course not a regular touring member during those years. We have had many promoters, pastors and friends ask about Alan, and now he is back and we could not be more pleased. Alan brings far more than his rich and talented voice. He also brings a wealth of business background, a firm commitment to Christ, and a friendly demeanor that everyone loves.”

Tri-State Gospel Music Hall of Fame was founded in 2005. It was formed to recognize and remember the efforts of those individuals whom have given to the advancement and support of Gospel Music in the Southeast Tennessee, Northwest Georgia, and Northeast Alabama, locally known as the Tri-state area.

There were 25 new inductees this year, including nationally known Jack Clark and Elmer Cole.
This years ceremony was held at Parkway Baptist Temple, Fort Oglethorpe, GA on August the 2nd.
Alan stated “I started singing bass in a young people’s church quartet at the age of 15. Since then I have sung with the Royal Heirs Quartet of Lafayette, GA, Kings Messengers Quartet of Lafayette, GA, Happy Harmony Quartet of Chattanooga, TN, Called Out Quartet of Dalton, GA, Hymnsmen Quartet of Cleveland, TN and Southern Sound Quartet of Nashville, TN. I joined Southern Sound in April of 2007 and stayed til October of 2010. After much thought and prayer I rejoined the group in August 2013.

My favorite memory would have to be my first performance on the main-stage of the National Quartet Convention with Southern Sound.”

About Southern Sound
A brief overview is simply a thumbnail sketch of what Southern Sound is really all about. In a word, Southern Sound Quartet is classy. They are deeply rooted in traditional Southern Gospel, four-part close harmony and in the testimony that Christ is Lord. I was fortunate to hear the group recently at a large church near my home, and they were indeed breathtaking. I lost count of the standing ovations they received that evening from a packed church, quite accustomed to hearing the finest Southern Gospel has to offer. The concert I attended will stay with me for quite some time, but even now, I hunger for more. Southern Sound’s attitude, infectious enthusiasm, stage presence, and fine sense of Spirit-filled music, makes a concert by Southern Sound one to be cherished for a very long while.
