The Sharps, an Alabama quartet with 40 years of experience, deliver four-part harmony songs about Heaven while merging youth and experience.

Anchor 1

The quartet's lead and baritone roles are performed by Andy and Ben Sharp, father and son. They are joined by Tony Lewis (bass), David Holt (tenor), and Jason Brown (sound engineer). To mention a few, the quartet has recently performed at the National Quartet Convention, Dollywood, Alabama Gospel Roots TV, PBS Television Network, The Gospel Greats, Gospel Music Today, Singing News, Atlanta Live, and Ascending Sounds TV. With their present popularity, the men hope to attract new audiences and fans who fall in love with their harmonies and personalities right away.

Today, Ben Sharp has taken over as manager and is guiding the group into the future. But don't be deceived by his youth. He has a smooth baritone voice that can stand out for a solo. Andy Sharp, is the only original member from 1984 that continues to travel and sing. Andy is well-known for his distinct vocals and passionate performance of each song. Tony Lewis anchors the sound with his smooth, clear, and powerful bass voice, which has become well-known among listeners over the years. David Holt, a tenor vocalist who has only been with the group for a less than a year, has quickly won praise for his powerful high tenor vocals and passion when singing.

 

Andy, Ben, Tony, David, and Jason are determined to inspire audiences with their music and mission-based initiatives, proclaiming Jesus Christ as Savior to a lost and dying world.

ANDY SHARP

LEAD VOCALS

*LAST ORIGINAL MEMBER*

"I grew up hearing quartets that my dad sang in church. I wanted to sing like my father, Joel, because I witnessed the importance of what he did through his singing. God blessed me with the opportunity to sing God's word alongside my father for 28 years. And now I can use the same method with Ben. I want my grandchildren to be proud of the legacy I've left them."

“In April of 2015, I began my career with The Sharps. That lasted for over three years. I came off the road in February of 2018. Dr. Ronnie Lewis, my brother and a well-known doctor in the community, was diagnosed with cancer and died in May 2018. Ben called me in January 2021 and asked if I could fill in for a time, and I prayed to God to reveal his purpose to me and not let me be an obstacle to it. Since my return, we've seen some of the most graceful services I've ever seen. God's timing and purpose are perfect, and all I want to do in my life is do his bidding, and it feels good to be back."

JASON BROWN

SOUND ENGINEER

“My career began in the late 1990s when I joined The Sharps and played lead guitar in the group's live band. I quickly took over the bass guitar and stayed for nearly 15 years. I eventually left the road to pursue my new career as a police officer, and I retired in the mid-2010s. In December 2021, God called mine and my wife June’s only child, Clay, home following a brief battle with cancer. He was only 24 years old. To say the least, we were devastated. Ben texted me a few months after the burial, and we talked about how everyone was praying for us and how I was welcome to go one weekend as a way to feel some sense of normalcy again. I declined his offer until one Thursday I showed up at a practice simply to put prove to myself I shouldn’t do it. Because Clay was a Belmont graduate and we shared a love for music, I knew he would have wanted me to. So to say that no one, including myself, expected God to send me back not only to this position, but also to the group at this moment in my life is a testament to his perfect will that we don’t understand."
