Golden Gate Quartet

"I guess I've always been a part of music, and music a part of me"


Have you ever heard about a pioneer Virginia gospel quartet called Golden Gate Quartet?


Golden Gate Quartet was a gospel group who was born in 1937. However, it has lived until 2008! So, work it out! Seventy years singing over the world! It's the most famous gospel group in the history of jazz!
The members of the quartet have been changing, of course, but they have created a new style called jubilee, a secularized form of church music. Their voices became instruments playing harmonies in four-part pieces.
Besides, they have played with legendary singers like Louis Armstrong, Ledbelly, Benny Goodman,...

One of the most famous song is "Down by the Riverside". Please, listen to it!

Your text is perfect concerning the language. I would just comment a style structure.
