The Golden Gate Quartet, American Gospel Legend
The famous Vocal Quartet – “the Golden Gate – American Legend” Has existed for the past 80 years, way before the Rolling Stones and the Pink Floyd.
This Legendary Quartet cannot stay invincible and unaffected by the changes of time, but the style, the sound and the spirit of the “Gates” will stay forever.
In 1934, four College students from Booker T. Washington, who had a passion and enthusiasm for music, founded the GOLDEN GATE QUARTET JUBILEE SINGERS, which became the “Golden Gate Quartet”.
The world-famous gospel ensemble that has become so famous in the world that it has not ceased to perform all over the world from the period after the war to the present.
Since the foundation of the Quartet, the original members had passed away, but the most experienced singers trained its new members. The new generation of the Golden Gate always kept a respect for their tradition.
