Greg & Charlotte Ritchie leave Jeff & Sheri Easter

Jeff & Sheri Easter recently announced the resignation of vocalist Charlotte Ritchie and her husband, drummer Greg Ritchie, from their group. [EDIT, 11/8/10: The link is broken and has been removed.] Greg Ritchie joined Jeff & Sheri Easter as their drummer in 1994; Charlotte joined as a vocalist about a year later.

Sheri Easter said, “They have been incredible to work with over the past decade. Not only will we miss their talents, we will also miss the relationships that have evolved. Their friendship will last a lifetime.” Greg and Charlotte Ritchie said: “We are truly grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Jeff and Sheri Easter. We love them very much and are excited to see God’s plan unfolding for their entire family.”

The Ritchies plan to move to Nashville, Tennessee, to be closer to their family as the birth of their second child draws near. While Jeff & Sheri Easter plan to have their children, Madison and Morgan, assume a greater role in performances, they “have not named any further replacements at this time.”
