Guy Penrod leaves Gaither Vocal Band to go solo
AFTER MORE than 14 years as the lead singer of the Gaither Vocal Band, Guy Penrod has announced he will be going solo. Said Penrod, "My years with the Gaither Vocal Band have been among the most glorious of my life. Now, though, with the Band continuing in strength and me tackling the new challenge of a solo career, we can all serve our God even more powerfully in the days to come."
Also leaving the Gaither Vocal Band is Marshall Hall who has sung baritone with the group since 2004. The new line up for the GVB (now for the first time a five-man group) sees the return of some of the group's best loved alumni. Effective immediately, the new line up will be Bill Gaither, David Phelps, Wes Hampton, Michael English and Mark Lowry. Mark Lowry will complete all his previously scheduled solo engagements through April 2009 and will appear with the Gaither Vocal Band at every available opportunity during this transition, beginning with the Gaither Caribbean Cruise on 22nd February.The opinions expressed in this article are not necessarily those held by Cross Rhythms.
