This week’s American inspiration is none other than bass singer George Younce, who is famous for his performances in the Christian music genre of Southern gospel quartets, particularly with The Cathedrals. The spiritually inclined musician recorded his first three solo albums in 1998 and also received the Dove Award for his musical contribution. With more than 100 projects in his discography, his album Symphony of Praise and Yesterday were critically acclaimed on various stages. The favourite bass singer has been featured in the GMA and SGMA Hall of Fame also for his authored songs.
