The James Brothers
Marshall and Leon James began singing gospel music at an early age. Their father, AB James, formed a family singing group that included their older brother Albert. He taught them to sing harmony by using the shape-note method of DO-RE-ME and over time, included extended family in the group. They were frequent performers at church events and other social gatherings in the community. During high school, Marshall and Leon performed with the Agriculture Quartet and the Holy Tone Quartet, winning numerous awards along the way.
