Mike Sandefur- Lead
He was raised in church from birth. He says, “I have always had music in my life. My family comes from a long list of singers as far back as my great, great, grandfather on my Dad’s (Leon) side of the family. My grandpa and grandma we're in a quartet in Tennessee, and my dad has sang in the group the 'Gospel Four' for as long as I can remember.” Mike began singing with his Mom, Dad and Brother when he was 7 years old and has never stopped singing. He says, “I learned how to play bass, and a little guitar at the age of 9, and started playing bass with the “Gospel Four” at 10 or so. After that, I played and sang some with “The Gospel Singing Messengers” until I went through some things in my life that challenged my faith and walk with God. For several years I sang some country and rock. I'm not proud of that time in my life, but none the less, it has put me in the place that I'm in now.” In 2009 Michael started the group “Livin’ Forgivin’” and they sang as a trio until March of 2015. Now the trio has reformed into what it is today. He is excited for what God has in store for the new group!
Rex Crockett- Baritone
Rex came on as Baritone with the original group 8 years ago. He is a great man of God that Loves to sing Southern Gospel music. He is a very solid Baritone that can sing the lead or tenor if and when it's needed. He also grew up in church as a young boy but found himself out of Gods will as a teenager and young adult. He did the Rock and Roll scene for several years until he met his wife Debbie who was in church and ultimately Rex made his way back into the Fold. Rex says he's shy, but when you come to see us you will figure out real quick he is anything but shy, He sure keeps us on our toes, but in a great and funny way. Next time you see us in your area come to our table and meet Rex and and the other guys. We all love to meet new people.
Scott Evans- Tenor
Scott Evans has a background and degree in Business & Hotel Management, and a degree in Event and Wedding Planning. He has a love for the theatre and was very active in the Rush County (Indiana) Players, a theatrical group. He has been in love with gospel music for as long as he can remember. He has been happily married for 10 wonderful years to his wife Brandy Evans, and sharew the privilege of raising their four children, Dominick, Ethan, Khloe, and Mason. He was baptized when he was 9 years old and has been devoted to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ ever since. He truly loves Southern Gospel music and considers it one of his true passions. The fact that he gets to sing with the other fine gentlemen in the group and praise our risen Savior is just unbelievable to him. Being the father of four and a full time Property Manager for The Village at Flatrock Apartments in his home town of Rushville, IN, doesn’t leave much time for music, but God has allowed him to make time for this. With the support of his family, both in and out of the home, he couldn’t think of a better way to full fill his calling. Although this is Scott’s 2nd Gospel Group to sing with, he is having the time of his life because he has always wanted to do this very thing. Serving the Lord in this way of singing Gospel Music and meeting new individuals that share the same passion, is out of this world. What better job could I ask for?!” When Livin Forgivin comes to your area, make Scott feel welcome and let him know you’re glad to see him.
