The widely popular Southern Gospel music group, Liberty Quartet, is returning to the area with a gospel concert at Escalon First Baptist Church on Saturday, April 27 at 6 p.m.

Liberty is a gospel group based in Idaho with a full-time concert schedule. The members of Liberty are Royce Mitchell, bass; Paul W. Ellis, lead; Derek Simonis, baritone; and Philip Batton, tenor. Liberty travels many miles each year, ministering in performances for church services, nursing homes, prisons, and other ministries. They also sing at large conventions including Southwest Gospel Music Festival, Great Western Fan Festival, and the Gospel Music Fan Festival in Canada.

Liberty Quartet has had the opportunity to share the platform with groups such as Gaither Vocal Band, Legacy Five, Greater Vision, the Booth Brothers, the Hoppers, the Isaacs, the Collingsworth Family, and many others. While featuring everything from high-energy performances to moments of contemplation, Liberty always leads the congregation in an incredible concert of worship.

Whether or not you are a fan of Southern Gospel music, you will certainly enjoy the enthusiasm these men exhibit while serving and singing to the Lord. Their ministry bridges all generations, bringing enjoyment to traditional and contemporary venues.

No admission fees are requested, but an offering will be taken in support of Liberty Ministries. Escalon First Baptist Church is at 1511 Catherine Way in Escalon.
