Brotherhood to sing
Brotherhood, a male quartet from Second Baptist Church in Union City, is coming to Martin’s Pleasant Hill Baptist Church, located at 562 Old Troy Road, just off Highway 45 East Sunday night at 6.
Members of the group are brothers Barry and Bryan Keathley, Chuck Doss and Sam Stephens. All of them have successful careers outside the Brotherhood Quartet.
Barry Keathley, the lead singer, is well known for his long tenure as minister of music at Second Baptist Church and as owner of Five Seasons Men’s Shop in Union City. Bryan Keathley sings the high tenor part, often swapping off with Doss, and is general manager of Green Acres Homes in Union City. Doss sings second tenor and is the vocal gymnast of the group. He is vice president of First Citizens National Bank and manager of First Citizens Financial Plus in Union City. Stephens rounds out the quartet as the bass singer. They sing regularly for worship services at Second Baptist Church and often appear on the church’s weekly TV broadcast.
Their vocal style ranges from close, smooth harmony to exciting “hang on to the pew” gospel singing. They sing Southern gospel music as well as contemporary songs and close harmony on traditional hymns and gospel songs. Their music will truly bless you and make the evening an event to remember, a spokesman said.
The Rev. Mac McCaleb and the fellowship at Martin’s Pleasant Hill Baptist Church invite you to attend Sunday at 6. There is no admission charge; a love offering will be taken and a nursery will be provided.
