Review for the performers: 

Among the performers sharing their talents with the Testimony Quartet is US 101 radio personality Ken Hicks, who sings bass, Dove Award nominee Howard Stewart who sings baritone, tenor singer Brad Harris and lead singer Heath Allen. 

Ken Hicks, hosts the “Gospel Road” Sundays from 6-9:30 a.m. on US 101 and appears daily for the morning show, said there is nothing quite like standing in the midst of history when you sing. 

The Hullender Family will feature their unique family harmony blend combining father Jeff with his adult children Justin and Emily. 

The group's CD  "He's in Control"  features new songs and some familiar classics. 

"Join us as we give praise for God's wonderful story of love through the fellowship of music and song," Jeff said. 

Jeff Hullender learned his music traveling with his singing parents — Jr. and Thelma of Ringgold. He also is a former member of the award-winning Gold City Quartet and performed with the Kingsmen and Teddy Huffam and the Gems. Emily Padgett is a Share America scholar.
