About the Skylight Quartet

Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world."

It is with the command and conviction of Mathew 28: 18-20 they choose venues, songs, music style, and testimonies used in each of their concerts. God has richly blessed Skylight and continues to use them to spread the word of hope and salvation throughout the mid-west.

Each year Skylight Quartet sings to thousands of individuals sharing the good news of the gospel through testimony and song. Whether it be during church services or at campgrounds, and arenas, Skylight wishes to preserve the familiar Southern Gospel sound and style so popular since its inception. Skylight Quartet has shared the stage with such well known, award winning, Southern Gospel groups as Triumphant Quartet, Tribute Quartet, The Dixie Echoes, and most recently with The Florida Boys, Danny Funderburk (The Cathedrals), and The Collingsworth Family.

Bass vocalist Kurt Vander Loon has managed the group since its beginning with baritone Joe Hoy, lead vocalist Mike Looney, and first tenor Robert Vander Leest using their voices to create a unique blend of harmonies that audiences have come to recognize and enjoy.

Testimonials

"Whether the Skylight Quartet is in concert at a Civic Center, Auditorium, at a church, small or large, or at an outdoor meeting, they will have the audience laughing, crying, and enjoying the best in Gospel music. Their message is clear that they are singing to convey the message of God's salvation and his never-ending love.

You will hear happy, hand clapping rhythms, some soul searching ballads, and yes, traditional gospel classics. But also expect to hear a few of the old hymns of the church, done in the Skylight Quartet style, smooth and harmonious.

I am pleased to recommend the Skylight Quartet to any special service you may be having or to add good, quality Gospel music to your special occasion. I spent 42 years traveling the United States with the Heralders quartet, and I look forward to being at a Skylight Quartet sing whenever they are in the area. My home church has sponsored the Skylight Quartet on many occasions."

"If you ever want to hear great southern gospel music from a group who demonstrates the love of the Lord, then listen to the Skylight Quartet.

We had them at our church at Faith Fellowship Church in Irons, Michigan and our people loved them. They not only sing great and have terrific harmony, but they truly minister when they sing.

As a pastor and a former member of a southern gospel quartet, I have seen many groups come and go. The Skylight Quartet will not disappoint you; in fact, you will be blessed greatly. Thanks, Skylights, for coming so far to sing for the Lord Jesus Christ!"
