WHO WE ARE
ALMOST 4 DECADES LATER, OUR MINISTRY IS STILL Spreading THE GOOD NEWS THROUGH SONG
For more than three decades, The Sharps have been an Alabama-based quartet dedicated to the male, four-part harmony that so many love and enjoy. In person and on recordings, you'll hear songs that are centered around each Christian's ultimate goal - Heaven. The group’s personnel have a mixture of youth and experience.
The quartet is comprised of father and son Andy & Ben Sharp, who sing the tenor and baritone respectively. They are joined by lead singer Mike Leath, and bass vocalist Tony Lewis. Recently, the quartet has been featured in events such as National Quartet Convention, Dollywood, Alabama Gospel Roots TV, PBS Television Network, The Gospel Greats, Gospel Music Today, Singing News, Atlanta Live to list a few. With this recent success, the guys pray to continue to reach new audiences and new fans who fall in love with their harmonies as soon as they hear it.
Today, Ben Sharp who sings baritone, has inherited the management role and leads the group onward into the future. However, don’t let his youth fool you. He provides a smooth baritone vocal, but also has the versatility to step out for a solo. Tenor, Andy Sharp, is the last original member of the group from 1985. Andy is not the highest tenor by any means but puts the top on the sound with his tenor voice and sincere delivery of each song. Tony Lewis, rejoined the group back in early 2021, once again anchors the group with his smooth, clear, and powerful bass voice that is so familiar to fans. Lead vocalist Mike Leath, who has been with the quartet 15 years, is known for his distinct lead vocals and for the way the spirit moves through him while he sings. With his strong vocal, he is the core of the quartet's powerful vocals.
Each member is dedicated to sharing the good news of the gospel through songs with encouraging lyrics, and personal testimonies presented in an engaging performance. Each man, and their families, are committed to moving forward and taking "The Sharps" even further in ministry efforts.
