Almost three years ago, southern gospel fans were introduced to a young tenor named Riley Harrison Clark, who took Brian Alvey’s place in Tribute Quartet. A few things have changed since then. (For one thing, Brian married Lauren Talley and joined the Talleys!) But something else has changed—Riley’s voice. As a teenager, he already showed great promise. But he’s only gotten better since then. His technique has been polished. His range has expanded. At this time, I would say he legitimately deserves a place among the best tenor singers in the business.
Notice that while he was singing the first cover in a baritone range (echoing Mark Lowry), this performance is more like a David Phelps key. I think that’s a high C he’s hitting. Somebody correct me if they think I’m wrong.
