The Gospel Believers

3:30 – 4:15 pm | Level 3

The Gospel Believers are one of the finest vocal gospel groups to have emerged from Grand Rapids, Michigan. Their first concert was in Grand Rapids at Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church. They have since accompanied nearly every major gospel group including The Mighty Clouds of Joy, The Canton Spirituals, The Gospel Keynotes, Darrell McFadden, Spencer Taylor and the Highway QC’s, Robert Blair and the Fantastic Violinaires, and Keith Wonderboy Johnson. The Gospel Believers’ sound has evolved from the same tremendous Grand Rapids tradition of gospel music. The mission of serving the Lord through the ministry of song has always been their primary focus.
