Master’s Voice quartet coming to La Rita Unveiling, blessing of the Pieta

Master’s Voice, an evangelical quartet, will be performing at the La Rita Theatre on Saturday September 9, with the concert beginning at 7 p.m.

Since 1995, Master’s Voice has been committed to bringing an evangelistic approach to singing and preaching the lifechanging gospel of Jesus Christ. According to the group’s website: “We are devoted to music excellence, p r o f e s s i o n a l i s m , commitment, clarity, doctrinal soundness and passionate vocals.”

Ricky Capps is the founder and owner of Master’s Voice. He has dedicated his life to that which he believes God has undoubtedly called him. Capps wears many hats, fulfilling the roles of preacher, boss, emcee, tenor, comic relief, and most importantly, friend. Since the group’s inception, fans all over the country are amazed at this man’s passion night after night. Master’s Voice has a heart for souls because Capps does. He has stated “When I die, if people can’t say that I reminded them of Jesus, then my life was in vain.” That perfectly sums up the way Capps views his role in this ministry.

The other members of the group are Jerry Pilgrim, T.J. Evans, Lathan Moore and Chuck Howe. On the group’s website, Jerry Pilgrim is described as “The Voice! There will always be a healthy debate over who is the best bass singer, but for anyone who has ever shared the stage with Mr. Pilgrim, the debate has been settled. There is no question that God meant for this man to sing. Whether he is wowing fans with his room-rattling notes, or singing a heart-felt ballad, singing comes as naturally as breathing for this man. Master’s Voice is honored to call Jerry our friend, and our bass singer.”

T.J. Evans is the lead singer. He is described on the group’s website this way: “What any team needs from a lead singer is exactly what T.J. Evans brings to the table; professionalism, approachability, loyalty, and consistency. It also helps that the man can sing! Not long from now, it will surprise no one when T.J. is known as one of the finest communicators of the Gospel this music has ever seen.”

Lathan Moore is a baritone. According to Master’s Voice’s website: “The baritone part is often thought of as the one that goes unnoticed. That most certainly isn’t the case with Lathan. While he does blend perfectly when singing harmonies, you will never forget his voice once you’ve heard him sing solo. Add to his vocal ability the fact that he has a powerful testimony of the power and grace of God, and it is easy to understand why Master’s Voice has tried to hire him on more than one occasion. We’re glad the Lord finally allowed us to share the stage with this man, and we can’t wait for you to hear him!”

Chuck Howe is the group’s sound engineer. Most group’s don’t include engineers in their bios, but Master’s Voice does. Howe is described on the website like this: “Other artists don’t include their sound engineer in their bio...that is because other artists don’t have the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, Chuck Howe. Chuck is a vital part of what we do. In addition to running the sound, he contributes as the group’s drummer. His servant’s heart is known far and wide, and we couldn’t do what we do without him.”

Tickets for the concert are $20 each and are available at The Flying Pig Mercantile at 323 Denrock Avenue. The phone number is (806) 244-1988. Tickets are also available online at
