Matt and his family reside just outside of Nashville, Tenn., but he is originally from St. Louis, Missouri. He was actually raised not too far from where we live in South City St. Louis. His wife's name is Jennifer, and they are blessed with a beautiful daughter whose name is Abbey and is 5 years old. Matt is a Graduate of Missouri University in Columbia, Missouri, with a degree in marketing, and he'll be the first to tell you his desire is to "serve the Lord" through singing gospel music and will use everything he has learned to get the message of Jesus Christ out to the world! He has traveled with several different gospel groups in his young life, including just finishing a nearly five year stay with the legendary Ed O'Neal & The Dixie Melody Boys. We are grateful to the Lord for sending Matt our way and we're looking forward to what God has in store for this ministry as we continue our journey for Him. Matt will join us beginning the week of September 8th, so be watching our Tour Schedule and come join The Lesters in concert; get to know Matt, and welcome him to the family.Matt also issued a statement
Growing up in St.Louis, our home was filled with the sounds of great gospel groups like the Cathedrals and the Happy Goodmans but one group stood out to us above the rest , the Lesters. One of the first songs I ever sang in my local church was "He didn't throw the clay away." I never dreamed I would have the honor to sing that song with them on stage. I'm thrilled to be apart of such a rich legacy of ministry and great music. Brian, Jon and all of the Lester family have already made my family feel so welcome. Joining the Lesters is truly like coming home. I look forward to getting to know all of their friends and fans very soon.
Look forward to seeing more from Matt and the Lesters!
