Gold Heart

“They absolutely knocked my socks off! They are called “Gold Heart” and these young ladies are true to their name. Their pure talent is amazing and their harmonies are enough to break your heart. I really can’t say enough about how good they sound. It reminded me of the first time I heard Rhonda Vincent or Dry Branch Fire Squad—a unique sound all their own. Simply inspiring! They are a pure listening joy!”—Les Evans
