David Mann joins Statement of Faith
Jon Epley recently announced that he left Statement of Faith to join the Inspirations. David Mann has left the Blackwood Quartet to take the baritone position Epley vacated with Statement of Faith.
Mann is married to Jael Kitson Mann, Jacob and Joe Kitson’s sister; family ties make the transition easy. The three have been singing together, off and on, since summer 2004; Jacob Kitson states that “singing with Dave is nothing new to Joe and I—this is an easy transition that is nearly seven years in the making.” Mann will begin with the group this weekend.
Michael Helwig, who sang with the Stamps Quartet and, more recently, the Homesteaders / Williamsons, will be taking Mann’s place with the Blackwood Gospel Quartet.
