The countdown to the top moment of 2013 continues with #9 this morning. This moment comes courtesy of the webcast from the National Quartet Convention. Mark Trammell Quartet's tribute to the Couriers goes down as not only one of the top moments of NQC but also of the year.
Mark Trammell started the group's set with "I Sing the Mighty Power of God." Mark mentioned that he saw the Couriers for the first time in the mid1970s at NQC. They impacted his life as well as countless other artists. The song was such an influence on Mark Trammell that it was included on the group's Lifetime project. Mark Trammell devoted most of his group's set to paying tribute to the group that impacted his life.
The Couriers, Duane Nicholson, Neil Enloe and Dave Kyllonen, were there, and Mark pulled them on stage. They were presented with plaques from NQC to thank them for all they had done for the industry with their upcoming retirement.
The Couriers then sang "Statue of Liberty" with Mark Trammell Quartet joining them at the end. It was such a great touching moment to remember the legacy of the Couriers.
Look for the countdown to continue the rest of the month!
