  • Great music by this gospel quartet~! So much so in fact that I became a promoter for the group throughout Texas & had them in my home. It was a honor & pleasure to personally meet Cecil & Donna Blackwood, Ken Turner, James Blackwood, Jimmy Blackwood and others. Also was a promoter for "The Florida Boys" & had them in my home. If you are interested in following the Gospel Music scene & genre, this website is a MUST~ www.singingnews.com As with the original Blackwood Brothers quartet, many of these fine singers/entertainers have gone on to meet their reward. Rest in PEACE & thanks for leaving a legacy of serving the Lord Jesus Christ on Earth, even through human weaknesses which we all have. God bless~!
