Dan Gilbert to stay with Liberty Quartet

Liberty Quartet announced about a month ago that Dan Gilbert would be leaving the group. The video they taped for SouthernGospelBlog.com left no doubt that they would be sincerely missing him. With that in mind, this evening’s edition of their newsletter brings some great news:

And the new lead singer for Liberty Quartet is…(drum roll, please):

Dan Gilbert! That’s right, Dan Gilbert. In the last few weeks, Dan has wrestled with his decision to resign and just feels like he’s to stay with us. As you can imagine, we are thrilled beyond words. Besides being the longest-tenured member of Liberty outside of Royce, Dan is so valuable to us with his strong voice, fun-loving personality, and mechanical skills. God isn’t through with this “version” of Liberty and we’re excited about what the future holds.

  1. I am thrilled to learn Dan is staying with Liberty Quartet. God works in mysterious ways and answers prayers. We are all so blessed to have the opportunity to know the members of Liberty and hear them sing in the name of our Lord.

  2. Really happy to read this good news!! I’m sure it was a tough time of crying out to the Lord for direction. Now we can expect more great things from this great bunch of guys!!

  3. Got to talk with Dan at the Fan Fest in California last weekend. I was bummed hearing that he was leaving. I ran into him numerous times on a cruise down to Mexico, and he’s crazy fun just like he is on stage. Anyway, saw him at breakfast last Saturday and he said that he felt that the best decision was to stick with Liberty. I know it had to be tough, deciding to stick with a ministry over landing a job with fantastic pay. I’m glad he’s staying, but I often wonder what most people would’ve done in his place. Pats on the back, Dan. You’re one of a kind and I’m glad you’re making the sacrifice. God Bless.
