Men Standing for Christ has been in performing in church and the region for half a century. Originating in the Mt. Carmel Baptist Church in Charlotte, NC, the group sings fervent gospel music in four part harmony accompanied by a four piece band composed of keyboard, bass, drums, and saxaphone, all tastefully subordinate to the magnificent singing of this too little known group. Men Standing for Christ is a magnificent musical and spiritual aggregation which more people deserve to hear. I can only wish churches and other locales would reach out to them and book them, or that they would record. (Look for a few videos of them on our YouTube Channel later in the week as well as on our FB Page on the next few Sundays).
Will someone please contact me in the comment section, on Facebook, or by email to identify the singer in these photos?
The Kingsmen are one of the most recognized and awarded quartets in southern gospel music. They're members of two halls of fame and have won numerous awards. Their singing in close four part harmony with intricate vocal choreography supported by pre-recorded music is slick and highly professional as well as spiritually uplifting for those who emjpy southern gospel. The format places the emphasis on vocal pyrotechnics rather than on making real connection with the audience or allowing any hint of spontaneity. Out of respect for the group's request, we made no recordings of their music.
