I have always stated that the purpose of Gospel Music Roundup is to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ through song. That’s exactly what this Artist Spotlight Group, The Goulds, is all about. I’ve also always believed that there are few harmonies quite so tight as FAMILY harmony, and these folks have it in spades!
Tim Gould – Patriarch, Passionate Parent, Provider, Preacher. I first met Tim while he was singing with the Missourians. Every time I caught up with them, Tim always stood out as a man who loved the music and the Gospel. As a devout family man, Tim loved to spend time with his two girls, Christa and Kelsey(aka KJ), and as the Lord would have it, those girls grew up singing gospel music and loving it. Time finally came where Tim realized that his real passion, love and ministry was singing to and with his family, and together they began to sing at events. This led to their own concert, then concerts, and it became clear that they needed to refine their focus, and follow the will of God.
If and when you attend one of the Gould’s concerts, you will be treated to a powerful testimony of God’s healing power and grace. No spoiler, here; I will just leave it at that. But I will say I was praising God for that testimony! You will also often have the opportunity to meet the “unsung hero” of the group, Tim’s Wife and the Girls’ Mother, Deb Gould. Truly a woman that helps keep everything in order and moving right along!
As you listen to this Gospel Music Roundup Artist Spotlight, you’ll see the reason I chose The Goulds as my premier 2014 episode; with such timing, testimony and tenacity, they are making great strides for the Gospel as well as within Gospel Music circles. This past season, they attended, sang and won their category at the National Quartet Convention, and have been traveling across several states, sharing their lives and their songs! I encourage you to visit the Gould’s Website and Store to obtain both of their CDs, Love Beyond Measure and Looking Up!
