Omega Becomes A Quartet

October 26, 2013 By: Aaron Category: Omega, SG Artists, SG Industry News, SG Music

RickShortly before NQC, it was announced that Kevin Harry, a fill-in lead for the Dixie Melody Boys, was joining this trio from Georgia. The group has been on main stage as showcase winners for several years. Now, the group announces, they are adding a bass singer:

On the very recent heels of hiring Kevin Harry as their new lead singer, OMEGA prayerfully made the decision to become a quartet!

After several discussions, a close friend of the group called with a name and a huge recommendation. Phone calls were made and an audition weekend was scheduled. It only took one sound check singing a few songs and the group knew they had found the right man for the job.

OMEGA is pleased to announce that Rick Walls will be the new bass singer for the group. Rick is no stranger to Southern Gospel. He sang bass for the Grand Strand Gospel Hour at the Gatlin Bros Theatre in Myrtle Beach, and most recently toured with the Holy City Quartet. Jeff Chapman of the Kingdom Heirs states, “I think Rick is a fine bass singer and will be a great addition to Omega”.

“I’m very excited about the opportunity the Lord has given me to minister with the three anointed men from Omega. Their passion and desire to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ is something that I am looking forward to being a part of for many years to come”, says Rick.

Doug Pittman, group owner, says “Rick is the full package! His enthusiasm and love for the Gospel is evident in all that he does. Not only does he have a great bass voice, he also has a heart for people. This partnership between Rick and Omega is perfect and God ordained. He sees eye to eye with our mission: to spread the love of God through His word in music.”

Rick will make his first official appearance with the group at the Creekside Gospel Music Conference October 28,2013.

Omega already had a strong sound as a trio, and I’m looking forward to hearing how they will sound as a quartet.
