The Brotherhood Gospel Singers of Mt. Pleasant were organized in 1977 from the members of several church denominations in the Mt. Pleasant area. The Gospel Singers perform a style of unaccompanied gospel that draws upon the early male quartet repertoire. They have performed throughout the state, and as far away as New Orleans, New York City, and Kansas City. Their schedule averages more than 40 concerts a year, from local charity benefits to Piccolo Spoleto. The Brotherhood Gospel Singers received the Jean Laney Harris Folk Heritage Award in 1993.
