Quartet music really does not get the true attention or recognition it deserves. However, the more society assumes that gospel quartet music is dead, there's always one quartet group that discredits that myth. Historically, the four part harmony of quartet groups got its start from old fashion barbershops and later evolved into gospel quartet music. Today's Examiner music feature is Detroit's Young Men 4 Christ or YM4C, who formed in the summer of 2012.The groups' members are Eric Johnson Sr., Minister Eric Johnson Jr., Devonte Harris, and Franklin McGee Jr, and Franklin McGhee III also known as 'Lance', the youngest of the group.This unique family gospel group consist of a father and son, and another father, son, and grandson combination.

Releasing their latest project in 2013, Young Men for Christ's recent CD featured other gospel artist such as Lisa Knowles and the Brown Singers. This quartet group has also shared the stage with other quartet groups such as The Jackson Southernaires, Paul Porter ,and Darrel Mc Fadden, and the Disciples.

In addition to their music ministry, they have also used their gifts to give to others. In 2012 the group hosted their first charity event to raise money for toys and canned goods giving all of the proceeds to a local Detroit charity.

Young Men 4 Christ believes in ministering to all with a youthful sound, and a traditional gospel quartet feel- who wants to continue the legacy of past and current quartet singers. YM4C states their ultimate goal for forming the group was to fulfill Gods work by touching people's lives with gospel music.

Do you feel quartet groups are fading away to other genres of music?
