The Northern Kentucky Brotherhood Singers are among the very few remaining Quartet style groups that still perform in the old-school acappella fashion. The Singers (Eric Riley, Ric Jennings, Stace Darden, Sam Norris Jr and Mike Wright) specialize in the intricate and emotional four-part harmony "jubilee" style pioneered by such legendary groups as the Dixie Hummingbirds, Soul Stirrers, Take 6 and Harptones of Cincinnati.

"Did You Know" - Mike Wright, our latest member, is 63 years old. He is a living witness that you can do anything you desire, with a positive approach & work effort towards achieving it. For years, since Jr. High School, he was told by family, friends & non-believers, that he would not amount to anything! However, Mike knew that with God, all things were possible!
To God Be The Glory!
