There is a man of great attribute in the Lowcountry, and I would like to pay homage to his accomplishments and thank him for giving back to our community in songs and thanksgiving.
Ronald Ferguson has been an inspiration to all and an example to the youth. I admire his stamina and tenacity. He continues to personify his character in all he does. He is an accomplished musician and songwriter.
Ronald wrote and produced a song for his brother and sister, Staff Sergeants’ Roshawn and LaTanya Walker entitled “To the Troops.” The song took off worldwide and it was posted on he Department of Homeland Security’s website for and is still being played at all military bases and stations all over the world. He is the mastermind behind a new CD and has formed a new group he sings with on a regular basis called “Chosen.”
Before this latest venture, Ronald decided to use his exceptional musical talents to produce a project by his local community choir – The Forty-One Community Choir. A recording took place on Oct. 16, 2011 at Bethel United Methodist Church in St. Stephen. This was an exciting time for all in the community, and those who attended were spellbound. We need more programs such as this to encourage our youth today.
Ronald has come a long ways after singing with Tommy Ellison and the Singing Stars. He continues to be a producer of songs that are soothing to your soul. He has masterfully weaved the gospel quartet style into the full choir sound.
There are some CDs by choirs and ensembles that even get the attention of diehard Gospel Quartet fans. Chosen Purpose Live & More is one such CD.
Ronald has his own website, the Glory Land Gospel blog and is also on YouTube.
I am proud to be an associate to Ronald Ferguson. Great job, and I wish you much success in your future endeavor.
