PENDLETON A Nashville Southern gospel group will perform at the Pendleton First Christian Church.
Blackwood Legacy Quartet, which had direct lineage to the Dove and Grammy-award winning Blackwood Brothers, will present a concert Monday at 7 p.m. at the church, 215 N. Main St., Pendleton.
Group owner and bass singer Rick Price was originally a protégé of the late Cecil Blackwood. He began his 35-year career singing with the Blackwood Brothers in 1977, and was eventually inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame with the group. Rounding out the quartet are lead singer Daniel Childs, who is the great-grandson to Blackwood Brothers founding father Roy Blackwood; Spokane native Luke Yates sings baritone and also is an award-winning pianist; and tenor singer Paul Secord is a former featured singer for Disney World.
Performing since 2001, The Blackwood Legacy Quartet continues the tradition of gospel music, performing nearly 250 concerts annually nationwide. The groups website is www.theblackwoodlegacy.com.
