The King's Heralds (2013)
Since 1927, The King's Heralds has been making great gospel music. The oldest active Gospel Quartet has featured 30 different men at different times, and has recorded over 100 albums in thirty different languages. Their music has been heard in over 50 countries including the islands of the Caribbean, all of Latin America, the South Pacific, Australia, Asia and Africa. They were the first Christian gospel group from the West to tour the Peoples Republic of China since 1949 when they sang at the First Invitational Symposium on the Christian Church in China.

The King’s Heralds have been awarded twenty-three Silver Angel Awards for "Excellence in Media," including six for "Best Male Vocal Group," fourteen for "Best Album" and a "Best International Broadcast" award for their own radio program, "Sounds of Praise." The group also received a "Gold” Angel Award" for being the oldest continuous Gospel Quartet in America.

Fans were recently introduced to Jared Otto, a new lead singer, who replaced 2nd tenor Joel Borg. Borg left the group in order to spend more time at home with his family. Jared, a former IT professional for the Health Department in the State of Florida, is from from Deland, Florida. The 25-year-old talked about the sudden career path change, saying, "This is certainly different than working with computers, but these guys are great men who love the Lord and make traveling a real adventure. Mostly it's exciting having the opportunity to sing about the most important message in the world and to see hearts and souls lifted up and their lives changed forever."

Don Scroggs added, "We are proud to welcome Jared to our ministry team. He adds some youth and vitality to the group. The Kings Heralds is the first full time group that he has been with. He is very committed to the Lord and is excited about this opportunity to be in full time music ministry."

The quartet is currently in the process of seeking out new material to produce a new album. In the meantime, fans can hear them singing old favorites at several concert events.
