Robert Fulton Is The New Gold City Tenor

April 10, 2013 By: Aaron Category: Gold City, SG Artists, SG Industry News, SG Music

There have been several groups on the market for a new tenor singer, but one book seems to finally closed on that, as Tim Riley gave word in a recent radio interview that Robert Fulton, formerly of Palmetto State Quartet, is singing the high part for Gold City. Fulton has been filling in/auditioning for the past several weeks. Head over and check out the interview; the stuff concerning the tenor position comes at around 3:40.

Hopefully, there will be some video footage of Fulton that surfaces with the group around the time of an official press release (though I think that word from Tim Riley is official enough), but so far I haven’t found anything on Youtube that really showcases the new sound. For now, though, here’s a clip from a few weeks ago made available by Gospel Music Today on Facebook.

From what I have heard so far, Fulton brings a different sound to Gold City, but it is one that I believe will be a benefit. I will say that I was surprised at first when I heard him sing songs like “I’m Not Giving Up,” as Palmetto State’s material never really sent him into that range, but he pulled it off.

  1. Interesting! I will hope for the best. This video may have been one of the first evenings he was “auditioning” . Anyone that will take on the Gold City Tenor spot I give big kudos. I am a tenor so I know filling that side of the quartet, Gold City Qt, is a big undertaking.

    • I believe you may be right, Darren. If I remember correctly, he was also under the weather during that clip. If he could do that with both of those factors in play, I’m interested to hear him later on and at 100%.

  2. I got to see Gold City last night at the KWFC concert in Springfield, MO, and Robert did an excellent job. I came in late so I had a seat farther back, but I got a few video clips. Nothing featuring Robert, but I’m uploading I Can Tell You The Time to the Hawkeye315 channel now. It’s a predominantly bass song, but without heavy soundtracks it features the tenor part pretty cleanly. Robert definitely has an excellent sound and blend…you had to listen to him in the concert—he didn’t stand out but rather blends very well. Very smooth tenor singer!
