The Skyline Boys Quartet, based in Northern Virginia, will bring the gospel message in their unique style to Family Worship Center-First Pentecostal Holiness Church, Memorial Drive in Pulaski, Sunday at 10:45 a.m.
One of their top hits is “When I Walk Into Heaven (With My White Robe On).”
The quartet has a three-point mission: deliver the gospel according to their calling, give the audience the opportunity to respond to the gospel message, and do the best in their presentation of the gospel and their singing.
Dennis Powers of Purcellville, is founder of the group and sings bass. The son of a pastor, he was introduced to gospel music by the Blackwood Brothers in the mid-50s and inspired by such groups as the Couriers and Cathedrals and other groups in the 60s. He started his first group in October 1964 in his dad’s church in Hagerstown, Md.
Lead singer is Toby Siler from Dayton, Ohio, also a pastor’s son, but now living in Newport News. He sang with several groups and his other group, New Life Trio, before joining the Skyline Boys.
Chris Little is baritone and pianist and is no stranger to this music. A six-year veteran of the U.S. Army, he has a wonderful testimony, that goes with his enthusiasm and piano playing.
Singing in the high range with a smooth sound is tenor Jerry Skaggs. He is no stranger to gospel music, having worked part time with Phil Cross and Poet Voices, The Faith Harmony Boys and his family group, the Faithmen.
The Skyline Boys were placed on the main stage at the 2007, fifth anniversary National Quartet Convention.
They are blessed to have four guys who fit together in their own ways, all focused on the calling that God has placed on their lives.
Dr. C.R. Conner, pastor, gives a welcome to everyone to hear The Skyline Boys sing the gospel at Family Worship Center Sunday morning.
