The Williamsons Announce New Lead Singer
Weleetka. OK The Williamsons of Weleetka, Oklahoma are saddened by the loss of our "long time" friend and lead singer David Folenius. David and his wife Lisa plan to travel across the country as The Lineage of David sharing the Gospel through music and by holding revivals meetings. Their debut project will be titled “When God Has Another Plan” and will be released on the Mended heart Music label. The couple plans to remain in Wetumka, OK where David will continue working with The Williamsons in their recording studio. They can be reached at through their website www.lineageofdavid.com
While saddened by David’s departure The Williamsons are also excited to announce the addition of Karl Rice to the lead position. Many will remember Karl from his nearly seven years as tenor for the The Anchormen, one of the country’s premier male quartets. Karl not only brings his quality vocal talent to The Williamsons, but also his ability to play several instruments. Group owners Donnie and Lisa Williamson also play a number of different instruments and audiences can expect much more live music from the group in the future. Karl, wife Daniela, and daughter Grace will be relocating to Wetumka in the near future. Plans for a brand new major project is already in the works.
The Williamsons are one of the country’s few true mixed quartets traveling today with Louisiana native Darin Hebert more than aptly filling the bass part. In 2013 they were nominated in the Absolutely Gospel Music Awards as Breakthrough Artist of the Year and Favorite Group of the Year and were in the top ten nominees as Favorite New Mixed Group in the Singing News Fan Awards.
About The Williamsons
The Williamsons began sharing the Gospel through music in 1998 as The Homesteaders Quartet. The dream of Donnie Williamson was to form a group to sing classic Gospel music on a limited basis. What he wanted to do never occurred. From the group's onset their demand was overwhelming. Soon they were performing more than 100 dates a year. For the past several years The Williamsons have been in full time Christian ministry and entertainment and have traveled across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Their music has been in national charts and were they honored to be nominated to the Gospel Music Association for a Dove Award.
Their high energy musical style appeals to people of all ages. The versatility of The Williamsons is evident through the wide variety of musical styles they perform. There is always something for everyone. The marketing of their performances targets families and not just fans of any particular type of music. Spending an evening with The Williamsons is sure to be one that will lift you up, bless you, and entertain you all at the same time. Their primary desire is to share the Gospel in such a way that those in attendance who do not know Jesus Christ will come to know him before the program is over.
