Brian Free posted on Facebook this afternoon that Derrick Selph is leaving Brian Free and Assurance. He sings baritone with the group. Here's the post in its entirety:
It is with sadness that I must inform everyone that Derrick Selph is leaving BFA and coming off of the road. He has been such an amazing part of this ministry for almost 10 years, and he will be greatly missed. As many of you know, Derrick and his wife Jennifer are expecting their second child, and he feels that he needs to be at home more. He will be greatly missed because we truly are family but we all want him to do what he feels he needs to do in this situation.
We are currently taking applications for the baritone position. Please send all applications to:
P.O. Box 1909
Douglasville, GA 30133
Or you can email me an audio clip, bio and picture to: email@example.com
Derrick will be with us a few more weeks and we truly wish him and his family the best God has to offer. We love you Derrick, Jennifer and Lydia.
This group has held a pretty steady lineup for the last several years. Selph left before but was not gone for long before rejoining the group in 2010. It's certainly understandable when someone comes off the road for family reasons! I wish the best for Derrick and his family and Brian Free and Assurance as they look for a new baritone singer!
