Wilburn&WilburnThis father and son duo combine a solid foundation of “Old School” with a flare of youthful presence to bring you the message of Christ, one song at a time.  After a long and fruitful time with his family group, The Wilburns, Jonathan became part of one of the most award winning Gospel groups of all time, Gold City Quartet.  Voted #1 lead vocalist five times by the subscribers of The Singing News, Jonathan’s tenure in Gospel music has brought him close to people of all ages.  His son Jordan has been around Gospel music all of his life and his ability to present a song with conviction and honesty will find its way into the hearts of Gospel music lovers everywhere.  Together they have a vision to bring fathers, sons, mothers, and daughters close again by expressing their love for one another through songs of faith and inspiration.  They want to give families hope, and remind them that God has a limitless supply of forgiveness and love!
