In 2014, Greater Vision and The Mark Trammell Quartet appeared the same night at an event in Marion, Illinois. Intermission ran longer than expected. Before stepping back on stage, the promoter pulled Gerald Wolfe aside and asked, “Could you close the second half with both groups on stage singing a few songs together?” Gerald answered, “Yes, we can do that.” What followed was an experience like no other. Since then, promoters have been asking – not just for GV and MTQ to appear together – but to replicate what took place on stage in Marion, Illinois. To see what happened that evening, watch the snippet below!
The Second Half Quartet combines the people’s favorite singers in a style of quartet music that is rare in its field. In 2015, Gerald Wolfe, Mark Trammell, Pat Barker, Rodney Griffin and Chris Allman took home a variety of awards at Gospel Music’s premier award show, The Singing News Fan Awards. Mark Trammell was voted Favorite Baritone of the Year by fans, becoming the first Gospel singer to win such an award in four separate decades; Pat Barker took home the Favorite New Soloist award; Greater Vision’s song, “For All He’s Done,” was voted Song of the Year and once again, Rodney Griffin was the recipient of the Favorite Songwriter Award. Individually, they are fan favorites, but together, they create an atmosphere that excites the crowd and takes all who listen on a journey of live music, quartet favorites, classic Gospel songs and hymns of the church that you know and love.
