History

Greater Vision began in 1990 with former Cathedral Quartet members Gerald Wolfe and Mark Trammell, along with friend and tenor singer/songwriter Chris Allman. The group quickly found success, mostly singing songs previously recorded by the Cathedrals and those penned by Allman.

Trammell decided to leave the group in 1993 and was replaced by former Dixie Melody Boys baritone Rodney Griffin, who was also a prolific songwriter. Two years later, Chris Allman left the group for the ministry and was replaced by teen tenor singer Jason Waldroup.

The trio of Wolfe, Griffin, and Waldroup remained together for the next thirteen years and quickly climbed to the top of the Southern Gospel industry behind the management of Wolfe and the songwriting of Griffin. The three won multiple group and individual Singing News Fan Awards over that thirteen year span.

In 2008, Jason Waldroup decided to leave the group to enter the seminary. He was succeeded by Jacob Kitson, tenor singer with the Tribute Quartet.

Jacob's tenure with the group was short compared to Jason's, as he announced in early 2010 that he would be departing the group to become an evangelist and form a new group with his brother Joe Kitson.

Speculation was rampant as to which person Gerald Wolfe would hire as the next Greater Vision tenor singer. Gerald surprised and pleased the Southern Gospel fans when it was announced in April, 2010 that Chris Allman, the groups original tenor singer would be returning to that position, fifteen years after his departure from the group.

Also in 2010, Greater Vision celebrated the 20th anniversary of their Southern Gospel ministry.
