David Phelps has a Voice
David Phelps sings with the Gaither Group, earning money and adding to a fund to provide retirements for generations of old time southern gospel singers who traveled and accepted pitiful love offerings from sweet and tight Christians and need assistance to survive their old age.
David Phelps last two albums have moved him away from Gospel to pop and gospel in his Album, The Voice, and in the just released Classic. My wife says his voice moves her unlike any she has heard and I agree, theress the tenor highs that amaze, but a velvety sound in his normal range.
In addition the person arranging and orchestrating these pieces needs to be recognized for putting songs together in a way that highlight the voice. There are still spirituals like Joyful, Joyful, and Morning has Broken, but also greats like Bring Him Home from Les Miserables, and You will never walk alone.
Highly recommended for music lovers.
