What do you get when you combine a nationally known excellent gospel music vocalist – one of the finest emcees in Gospel music, a home schooled piano playing genius and the great grandson to one of the founding fathers of Blackwood Brothers Quartet? Blackwood Legacy.
Blackwood Legacy, a Christian Gospel Group comprised of Rick Price, Luke Yates and Daniel Childs, is one of the most successful gospel music groups in history. Winners of numerous Grammy and Dove Awards this group truly demonstrates the love of God through their music, ministry and testimonies.
For the last three years this beloved music group has blessed Chewelah, Washington with a visit in the month of June. This last Sunday was no exception as one little girl ran around excitedly telling everyone that “The men in black suits are here to sing to us today”.
Several young teen girls flocked to get a glimpse of Luke and Daniel and pine over the fact that these guys are single. Another woman took her sister to the airport a few hours early so that she could be back in time to hear this phenomenal group minister to this little community. Each year a few more people arrive to hear them sing and a few more hearts are touched.
As the service wound to a close the crowd gathered to give donations in exchange for their choice of several Cd’s from Luke’s piano playing to a Christmas Cd and everything in between.
A recent record deal leaves us all wondering what’s in store next for this beloved group.
Built on the legendary music of the Blackwood Brothers Quartet, Rick Price and Chris Blackwood formed the Blackwood Legacy as a tribute to The Blackwood Brothers Quartet. Over the years they’ve built their business on spreading the word of God and his love for all.
Rick Price shares wonderful testimonies from the heart reminding many of their own struggles. By sharing these testimonies the audience sees that he too struggles in life and that God gets everyone through difficult times. Rick also spreads the word of God through his ministry in gospel music. With over 30 years of gospel music under his belt he is the first member of Blackwood Legacy which began in the year 2000.
Luke Yates is a home schooled piano playing genius from the Spokane, Washington area. Luke has a great sense of humor and an excellent stage presence. It’s hard to believe he has played the piano just under a decade. Once you hear him play the piano nothing else will compare.
Daniel Childs is the great grandson to founding father Cecil Blackwood and when Rick Price was seeking a new tenor for Blackwood Legacy Daniel jumped at the opportunity to join in with his passion in evangelism and singing gospel songs. With his tenor voice Daniel is a great asset to this gospel music group. Daniel is also in charge of their multi media. As Rick puts it, ” Facebook, our website, youtube and that bird thing” (twitter).
