"COMMON BOND QUARTET"
A little history...
While the Common Bond Quartet consists of Kevin Willis (tenor), Rick Melton (lead), Mike Bradshaw (baritone) and Bryan Stevenson (bass) they recognize that they would not be the group they are today without the help and support of their families and so many others who have been instrumental in their development as individuals and musicians. Immediately prior to their coming together in 2009, Kevin Willis and Rick Melton had been a part of the group ‘One Bond’—which had been both a trio and quartet formed at the First Church of God in Mt. Sterling, KY. Bryan Stevenson and Mike Bradshaw had formerly been members of the quartet: ‘Commissioned’ that was a quartet formed in the First Church of God of Winchester, KY. In the fall of 2008, both quartets found themselves in a position of being short two members (due to changes in jobs or family responsibilities) and each group was considering disbanding entirely. However, several of the members continued to feel that God had not released them to discontinue singing for Him.
In early 2009, the four men met together to discuss merging, and in a very short period of time, they each received a conviction and assurance that God had, for years been preparing each of them, individually, to the ministry to which He was now calling them. After much prayer, and through some unusual events which could only have been attributed to God’s handiwork, the men came to know that the Lord had brought them together to sing together, minister to others and ultimately bring glory to Him through their partnership.
