Hello we’d like to introduce ourselves. We are the 6-time Stellar Award nominated traditional gospel quartet group Endurance, based out of Houston, Texas.
Endurance is Claude Cummings, Michael Robertson, Earl Sampson and newest member, Dave Botts. Each member is actively involved in their respective churches and all are either deacons or preachers. Claude Cummings is the Chairman of the Deacon Board at Fifth Ward Missionary Baptist Church. Michael Robertson is an Associate Minister at Pilgrim Hill Baptist Church. Earl Sampson is a deacon at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church and Dave Botts is a deacon at Greater Christian Fellowship Baptist Church. These four spirit filled gentlemen are all Houston, Texas natives. Claude, Michael and Earl are Kashmere High School classmates who reunited some years ago to pursue a life long dream, which was to sing God’s praises and share a message of hope and deliverance.
These three along with Dave have been blessed by God to complete their latest CD project, Right On Time, also featuring Mr. Andre Tate of The Williams Brothers. The title track, “Right On Time” is their most successful single to date in terms of radio spins and record sales. There are several who have worked with Endurance over the years and the end result is a collection of uplifting song renditions filled with demonstrations of range and diversity from the marvelous talents God has blessed and entrusted them with.
In addition to their ministry as recording artists, Endurance serves the community by living their motto: “Reaching God’s People Through Song”.
