Kingdom Heirs’ pianist departs
The Kingdom Heirs have announced in a concert that their pianist, Adam Harmon, will be leaving the group. Harmon, who stayed with them for four years, will apparently be taking the Music Minister position at Southside Baptist Church in Knoxville, Tennessee.
The job of playing with the Kingdom Heirs is often considered the nicest position in Southern Gospel music, despite the fact that the Kingdom Heirs are not necessarily Southern Gospel’s most popular group. The opportunity to stay in one place for nine months of the year, have your audiences come to you, and go home to your families every evening is the sort of prospect that many find irresistible. With the exception of pianists who lead or are longtime members of groups, the Kingdom Heirs will be able to take their pick from just about any pianist in Southern Gospel. It will be interesting to see who they select.
