Youtube Spotlight: Freedom

June 25, 2012 By: Aaron Category: Concert Reviews, Freedom, SG Artists, SG Music, Youtube

This past Friday night, I headed over to Wirtz, VA to hear Freedom sing at Halesford Baptist Church. The church hosts several concerts each year, and I’ve never been disappointed with the quality of the groups that are brought in. This concert was no exception. This relatively new trio features tenor John Rulapaugh, lead Josh Garner, and baritone Tyler Vestal. Here are some videos that I took during the concert:

 

“When The Son Finally Sets” is a song that sounds like something you’d hear from the Florida Boys, especially since it features Josh Garner, who sang with them for eight years.

Young baritone Tyler Vestal finally got a feature on “Come On In.”

I’ve been a fan of John Rulapaugh’s singing for years, having enjoyed his work with the Dove Brothers and Palmetto State Quartet, and “If It Wasn’t For That Cross” was a personal highlight of the concert for me.

Josh Garner delivers “I Know,” a classic that recently got a spotlight on Steve Eaton’s blog.
