For decades, the LeFevres blazed new trails in Gospel Music, turning out songs and singers that would become legends in the field. Their award winning music allowed them to sing for Presidents and Dignitaries all over the world. In the late 1970's, some thought the LeFevre name would be retired when the trio came off the road, but in the 1980's and 90's, Mylon LeFevre & Broken Heart became one of the top acts in Contemporary Christian Music.
Once again, the LeFevre name continued to break new ground in Christian Music. As they entered the new millennium, the LeFevre name grew stronger than ever. Within just one year of formation, Gospel Music fans voted the LeFevre Quartet the 2006 Singing News Fan Awards Horizon Group of The Year. In 2007, the group was voted "Breakout Artist of The Year" in the SGN Awards and in 2009, their song, "Big Mighty God" was nominated for a Dove Award. In 2016 and now in 2017, The LeFevre Quartet have been nominated as a Top 10 Traditional Quartet in the Singing News Magazine's Fan Awards.
It often takes more than just a legendary name to gain the recognition this group has attracted, but with stellar vocals, high energy performances, and a heart for ministry, this combination of talent is one you won't soon forget. The LeFevre Quartet strive to reach the masses with a message of hope, grace and salvation through Jesus Christ!
