“John in the Jordan” at #1 on multiple charts
Signature Sound’s current single has climbed to the #1 spot on several different charts, most notably the May 2007 Singing News radio airplay chart. [EDIT, 11/8/10: The link is broken and has been removed.] (SN posts their airplay charts a month before the press date of the magazine.) It is also #1 this month on the Powersource, American Christian Top 40, and Gospel News singles charts. According to promoter Rick Hendrix, “‘John in the Jordan’ has become the first song in history to capture the # 1 spot on 4 leading trade magazines in the same calling period.”
When I first saw pictures of Signature Sound, I wasn’t too sure about their spiked hair and generally modern appearance. But hearing their sound won me over; underneath the spiked hair and short ties, they are vocally a traditional male quartet–and one of the best.
It has been fun to sit back and watch a Southern Gospel quartet succeed. They have found their niche, and they are utilizing it well.
