Sanford, NC (Feb. 22, 2019) — The Harvesters are very excited to announce Brendan Parker from Raleigh, North Carolina, as their new lead singer. Carrying on the Parker family tradition to another generation, Brendan is the nephew to Danny Parker and Ivan Parker and brother to Chris Parker, who sings bass for Carolina Vocal. He and his wife Jessica live in Raleigh with their three daughters and one son.
Brendan knew at an early age just how important music was to him. He accepted Christ as his personal Savior at an early age, and growing up around Gospel music set him on a path to use his voice to carry on a tradition of worship and praise, “quartet style.” He joined his dad, Charles Parker, in their own quartet, Arise, for 10 years before the quartet disbanded. Now, he is thankful to serve in Gospel music once again and excited to be joining his Uncle Danny and The Harvesters.
He will fill the vacancy left by longtime member Allen Hunter, who has retired from the quartet. Plans are for Brendan to fill the lead singer slot, and Danny will move to the baritone position. Danny says, “We are excited to have Brendan as a member of The Harvesters. He not only has a tremendous voice, but his walk with God is portrayed with his witness and testimony.”
Brendan and Allen will both be singing at The Parker Homecoming 2019 in Sanford, North Carolina, on March 15 and March 16, 2019. The Harvesters ask everyone to join them in welcoming Brendan and his family to the group for this new season of music and ministry.
