Higher Hope is a southern gospel quartet based out of LaGrange, GA, whose traditional
sound harkens back to the roots of family harmonies, hymns and the traditional southern gospel sound.
The groupís ministry began in the spring of 2005 with the vision of founding member, Jenna Boyd Byers.
After a lifetime of experience with southern gospel music--thanks to her parentsí ministry as singers
and DJs and her own church performances that started at the age of 6--Jenna began writing songs at
the age of 18. The Lord blessed her with a role in Higher Hope at the age of 20. She has managed the
groupís ministry since its inception. First, as the lead singer in a family trio rounded out by her
sister and brother-in-law, then as the lead in the quartet Higher Hope is today. Bass vocalist Daniel Byers from Blairsville, GA started singing at the age of 5 and
later attended the Stamps-Baxter School of Music.Danny has been a part of several singing groups, and when he met Jenna, he was manager and bass vocalist
for Next Chapter Quartet out of Alexander City, AL. In November 2008, Danny made the move to Higher Hope.
He and Jenna have been singing the gospel together since then. They were married in 2010 and have two
beautiful boys, Luke & Christopher.
Singing alto is Jennaís mother, Gayla Boyd,
who got her start singing with her husband Donald in the southern gospel family quartet The Followers more than 38
years ago. Gayla has been a part of Higher Hope since 2006, and itís easy to see her love for the Lord when she sings
on stage. Gayla is also a part of the TV and radio ministry "The Gospel Connection," with her husband.
The weekly program airs every Sunday morning from 6 AM - 10 AM on 98.1 FM, in the southwestern GA area.
And if youíre out of radio range, you can listen live via www.magic981.com. Donald and Gayla have sung
together for many years, and he will often show up at Higher Hope concerts to bless the audience with a song or two.
Please consider allowing Higher Hope to come & minister at your next special service.
We would LOVE to come worship our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with YOU!
