King’s Cadence Kick-Off Concert (Chattanooga, TN)

by Diana Brantley | August 6, 2019 4:33 PM

Back in February, K.C. Armstrong announced that he would be starting a new group and that it would be formally launched in August. K.C. formerly sang bass for the PromisedLand Quartet while he was stationed with the U.S. Army in Washington, DC. With his retirement, he wanted to fulfill his dream of having a quartet with some of his best friends, so King’s Cadence was created. The men who are joining him have known each other for many years, having met each other as members of choral groups in the Chattanooga, Tennessee area under the leadership of Dr. Glenn Draper. So, Todd Gaither (tenor), Jay Craig (lead), and Mark Tilley (baritone) have now come together with K.C. in a dynamic and powerful quartet.

In some of their own words, their style can be described as a mix of traditional, southern gospel, Americana, and contemporary flavored inspirational music. Each of these singers are extremely gifted, so together they are really outstanding! In the lead-up to their kick-off, they released four a capella videos, two of which were filmed in Covenant Presbyterian Church where the launch concert was held. The church is absolutely beautiful and has incredible acoustics.

After all of the anticipation, the concert was certainly worth the wait! While the large church was not filled to capacity, there was a great attendance of enthusiastic family, friends, and fans to cheer on the group. At this concert, they released a brand new hymn album, “Tune My Heart To Sing.” They sang a few of the songs from the album and gave quite a variety of other songs and styles. Here’s what they sang for us:
