John Edmonds, Singer/Musician
Uplifting! High energy gospel music filled with emotion! That is John Edmonds' trademark as solo performer or with his group, the John Edmonds' Gospel Truth. John's gospel music experiences range from playing in his hometown churches as a young man to playing on a USO stage in Vietnam under enemy fire. His audiences have ranged from 100,000 (when the Smithsonian Institution spotlighted Kentucky) to 3, and his venues from Washington, D.C., to Greenland (where Denmark's Princess Elisabeth was a part of a standing room only crowd). John has appeared on stage with Ricky Skaggs, Della Reese, and the Coasters, and has performed for churches and civic and social organizations. His music has moved audiences at private and public functions and through recordings for more than thirty years.
