Higher Power --  Higher Power has been sharing their faith through their music and personal testimonies since 1996. God has been faithful to provide them with everything they have needed to build their ministry into what it is today. Higher Power sings gospel, southern gospel, progressive gospel, and contemporary music in its concerts.

By popular request, Legacy Five returns to Riverview for our season finale.  Legacy Five offers rich four- and five-part harmony masterfully weaving together unique and versatile talents.

When the Legendary Cathedral Quartet retired in December of 1999, Scott Fowler and Roger Bennett decided to continue the rich musical tradition of Southern Gospel Quartet singing.  Legacy Five was organized and had their official debut in January 2000 in Atlanta, GA.  Since that day, they have made a major mark on the Southern Gospel Music world.  Immediately audiences responded overwhelmingly to their four-part harmony and their ability to effectively communicate the message of Christ. Since the quartet’s formation, they have established and maintained a firm place at the top of Christian music.
