Cadence of the King at Culpeper Baptist

Culpeper Baptist Church will host a free concert featuring King’s Cadence, a male gospel quartet from Tennessee, at 4 p.m. this Sunday, November 20.

King’s Cadence, a “gospel-rooted” quartet, has been KC Armstrong’s dream since 1994. After serving 20 years collectively with the US Air Force Singing Sergeants and the US Army Chorus, KC returned to the Tennessee where he reconnected with old buddies and started King’s Cadence. As a Christ-centered ministry, their vision is to sing great songs to people who long for some good news, an encouraging word, or maybe just something to smile for, according to a statement from the church.

Formed in 2019, the group has already had many engagements and is quickly becoming a very popular ensemble. Each member has been singing gospel music with other groups for decades, and each of the four men has college-level vocal training and holds a music degree, the statement said. Together they bring years of experience and a variety of musical styles to the platform. Friends since 1996, they originally met in studio sessions while performing with Chattanooga-area-based ensembles.
