The members of Poet Voices have been singing Southern Gospel Music as a group since the quartet was formed by lead singer Phil Cross in 1991. According to the group’s Facebook page, its identity was strongly tied to the writing of Phil Cross and the group’s sound was considered, “progressive” at the time.
Poet Voices is based in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and although performances have been slowed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the group recently recorded at Daystar Television Network for an episode of Gospel Music Showcase.
The group recently created a video of their latest song “I rest assured” for those who cannot go to a gospel show due to the corona virus threat. The video was made using social distance meeting software.
“I rest assured” continues to inspire audiences over the radio and online and takes the number one spot on the Mid-July Texas Gospel Canada Top 20.
