The Classic Imperials appear on stage in the first live concert with all new material in over a decade. As the imperials, the legendary vocal group has stayed in the forefront of Christian music for the last 5 decades, winning 4 GRAMMY Awards and 17 Dove Awards, including the inaugural Male Group of the Year award in 1969 and the first ever Artist of the Year award in 1981. In 1998, they were inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame. But The Imperials are well known to music lovers far outside the spectrum of just Christian and Gospel music, thanks in part to the years they spent backing Elvis Presley on tour and in Las Vegas. These days, the group is comprised of a rock solid line-up of founding member Armond Morales (bass), 29-year veteran Dave Will (baritone-lead), popular alumni Paul Smith (tenor./lead) and new member Rick Evans (tenor/lead),who has traveled extensively with Billy Graham, Harvest Crusades, Promise Keepers and more.
