We certainly goy many blessings from Anthony's piano playing. We'll mis his great style of playing.
Offer our prayer and support to his family. God is great and will be a great counsellor in the time of sorrow.
Yours truly,

I'm sorry to see David Phelps leave the Gaither Quartet. I'm not sure which style of music he gravitates toward but I'd like to see him keep to the traditional and southern gospel roots. Rock and Roll does not serve as a good medium for worship music and is geared more toward secular youth. Trying to mix it with shallow " christian lyrics " only sells short those we are trying to win. I hope Dave is able to avoid the pitfalls of popularity and fame and not comprimise. Keep it spiritual, stay faithful Dave.
Sincerely, Aaron

It seems so sad and yet Gods plan for us to move on after all we are only passing thru with the prospect of impacting this life in a positive way. When we see our beloved artist move on we all greve and plan that day of reunion where we can sit by the throne and know his face and touch rather than imagine it, and be blessed to finally be home.I weep now but will rejoice when he says i can.
See ya the house.

I agree with Aaron. I bought some of David's CD's thinking I would be hearing him like he sounded with the Gaithers. I was so disappointed. Where is that strong beautiful voice? He doesn't even sound Like the same singer. Sure wish he hadn't left. I regret that he never got his "Best OF" from Bill Gaither. Hope some day he will do a tribute of Gaither songs for us older people.

I agree with Aaron (Aug 12) regarding David Phelps leaving Gaithers. He doesn't even sound like the same singer now. Where is that beautiful powerful voice? I'm so sorry he never got his "Best Of" from Bill Gaither. What a CD that would be!!! Hope some day he will do a tribute to Gaither music for us "older" folks.

It seems so many of the "Christian" artists forget where their talent comes from and Who put them where they are, and follow the dollar signs.
