Daywind Producer and nationally-known song writer, Marty Funderburk from Nashville, TN says, "I have had the privilege of spending many days in the studio producing nine of Forgiven Quartet’s recent recordings. I’m very impressed with their vocal capabilities and their incredible blend. Even more impressive than this however, is their commitment to ministry and to preserving the rich heritage of southern gospel music. These are Christian gentlemen of the highest order, obviously committed to spiritual and musical excellence. You can see it in their live performances and you can hear it in their recordings. Ladies and gentlemen, I am proud to present to you, Forgiven Quartet.....Southern Gospel Music at its finest."
