Video of the Day: Triumphant Quartet
Here is a video of Triumphant Quartet performing a song, “Saved By Grace,” off of their upcoming recording.
This CD/DVD set will be their first recording with The Mansion Entertainment (after spending their first seven years together with Daywind). The song itself was introduced by a mixed group in the early 1990s or so. Though the original rendition is also available on YouTube, I’m not liking linking to it here due to that group’s espousal of the unorthodox Oneness doctrine.
Thoughts on this rendition: In the decade or so he’s been on the road, Scotty Inman has grown from a decent baritone to one of the best lead singers in Southern Gospel. Though he still is listed as Triumphant’s baritone, out of respect to the decades his father has spent as a lead singer in a number of different groups, few lead singers in our genre could carry a lead as well as he does on this song.
Why is he as good as he is? It’s not only that he has some good genes—as he said an interview I did with him a few years back, he regularly takes voice lessons to hone and perfect his ability, taking a cue from Glen Payne, who continued with voice lessons until the year he died.
Bonus video of the day: Am I the only one who generally watches the behind the scenes on a DVD first? There’s just something about those unscripted moments! At any rate, here is a video from Courtney Collingsworth showing the reaction at the Collingsworth house when father Phil places the winning bid for a car on eBay: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V_wXAo4i1_w.
