Gaither Vocal Band Background
The story of how the Gaither Vocal Band came to be dates back to the early 80s
when Steve Green, Lee Young, Gary McSpadden and Bill Gaither gathered around a piano backstage before a Bill Gaither Trio
concert. They were singing "Your First Day in Heaven," having fun, when Gaither spontaneously decided they should put their
sound to the test in front of a live audience that night. The audience loved it, and that spur-of-the-moment performance cemented
the beginning of it all.
They released their first album, The New Gaither Vocal Band, in 1981. A year later, Young exited
the group, and Jon Mohr joined the band as the new bass singer.
They then cut their next album, Passin' The Faith Along.
Eventually, Steve Green departed from the group, and Larnelle Harris was hired on to replace him. This group recorded the
New Point Of View album prior to Mohr's exit.
The band's lineup continued to change over the years. But three decades
later, the Gaither Vocal Band continues to take harmony to a whole new level. They have crafted a legacy of chart-busting
success and Grammy-winning excellence.
Over the years, many of gospel music's most celebrated voices have been a part
of the Gaither Vocal Band, including Steve Green, Jon Mohr, Gary McSpadden, Larnelle Harris, Mark Lowry, Lemuel Miller, Michael
English, Terry Franklin, David Phelps, Russ Taff, Marshall Hall, Lee Young, Wes Hampton and Guy Penrod.

"God is up to something here,"
said Bill Gaither. "I continue to be amazed at the extraordinary ways He communicates the power of the Gospel not only through
our music, but through our lives. The simple messages I first started writing about as a wide-eyed, young musician hold truer
to me today than ever before … and it is truly about much more than the music."
