The Golden Wings Quartet was established in 1970 in Tupelo, Mississippi. The members consist of James Parks, Toby L. Coker, and Tyrone Parks.
The Golden Wings Quartet has spread the gospel through songs throughout the United States and abroad. For over 30 years, the Golden Wings have enjoyed much success playing many major concerts, and most recently a recording on the Bobby Jones Gospel Show.
This is the group eighth recording and they have also shared the stage with Lee Williams and The Spiritual QC’s, Evelyn Turrentine-Agee, George Dean and the Gospel Four, and others. The Golden Wings are best known for their smashing hit, “You Got To Leave It Here.” They have released one project titled “Get In Touch” and in the process of releasing their second.
The group was awarded a Certificated of Outstanding Achievements and named 2002 New Gospel Quartet Artist of The Year by the National Association of Gospel Promoters in Atlanta, Georgia.

*I had the extreme honor of speaking to the warm, friendly, down to earth, spirit-filled Mr. James Parks of the group and looking forward to meeting him and the group when they perform Friday June 8, 2012 in San Francisco, California.
