Coming in Concert July 17th, 2016
The Lesters, from St. Louis, Missouri, often called "St. Louis' First Family of Gospel Music," have been sharing The Word through song for four generations. With more than a 90 year history and numerous albums behind them, the group proudly brings the third & fourth generation to the stage for a sound that is 100% ~ "PURE LESTER."
Truly, The Lesters are ~ "A FAMILY FOR THE FAMILY."
Their signature sound is a blend of inspired arrangements and vocal artistry, led by longtime performer BRIAN LESTER. Brian, who also serves as emcee and manager, has been singing with the family since he was four. His vibrant voice and easy rapport with audiences ministers to young and old alike.
As a fourth generation performer, JONATHAN LESTER brings a real freshness to the group. Like his father, Brian, Jon was "born to sing," performing at a very young age. But he remains inspired by the generations of Lesters who went before him and by the message of God's eternal grace.
The newest vocal addition to The Lesters is Jonathan's wife BAILEE LESTER. She has been inspired and influenced by listening to gospel music her entire life. Since a young child her family would attend concerts at Meramec Caverns to hear all the great gospel groups. Little did she realize that God was preparing her for something special; not only as a part of the family, but to "Sing For The Glory of God."
The Lesters take pride in their family heritage, but consider God's greater family as the real reason for their continued work. As they prayerfully pass their legacy to future generations, The Lesters hope to move others to a deeper level of spiritual commitment.
MISSION STATEMENT: The Lesters is a ministry dedicated to leading people to Jesus by sharing the joy of Christ through music and personal testimony.
