The Emmanuel Quartet is an acappella gospel group from Collegedale, TN. The quartet began in 1989 as the "Highland Academy Men's Quartet." In 1993 the group's name was changed and The Emmanuel Quartet was born. The quartet's music is 100% acappella, featuring barbershop-style harmonies and a smooth blend of voices. The quartet has recorded seven independent albums and the members arrange all of their music and write many of their own songs. The group tours the United States presenting concerts to audiences of all ages and religious affiliations. They've also traveled internationally, participating in several evangelistic events.
In 1997 the quartet won first place at a national gospel music talent competition in Jackson, TN. In 2007 they traveled to Jakarta, Indonesia providing music for a week-long event and singing at the final meeting for 12,000 attendees, including the governor of the capital city of Jakarta. In 2009 the quartet sang for a series of meetings in the Philippines held near the capital of Manila. In 2013, the quartet recorded their latest project titled "Twenty & Change: Songs from the Heart" which celebrates their 20th year of music ministry.
The members of the quartet are not only musicians by desire, but also ministers of the gospel through music. The mission of the quartet is to reflect God's love through music, reminding His people that He is with us and that Jesus is returning soon. Over the years, the faces of the quartet have changed but the smooth harmonies and genuine spiritual message remain.
