The Golden Gate Quartet was founded in 1934 in Norfolk, Virginia. It stille exists (of course with new members). First some of their concerts were played by local radio stations. 1937 they got a contract with Bluebird Records. They were invited by John Hammond to the Carnegie Hall in New York. This was the beginning of their national career. Sometimes they were invited in the White House (e.g. to the inauguratiion of Franklin Roosevelt). After world war 2 they grew very popular in Europe. For some years they lived in Paris. Elvis Presley got to know an estimate them. Together they recorded some songs.

Joshua fit de battle of Jericho, Je-ri-cho, Je-ri-cho..
Good morning sister Mary.
You may talk about the man of Gideon
Up to the walls of Jericho
