Perfect Tenor Performances: Gus Gaches, “Holy Is Thy Name”

When I first heard Gus Gaches’s voice, he vaulted into my personal top five southern gospel tenors practically overnight. It was instant fanhood. Some tenor singers take a little time to grow on you, but it’s hard not to be quickly won over by Gus’s pure, smooth tones. He’s very steady and clean, and he retains a full sound even in his upper register (though he wisely chooses not to push himself past a high D or so, to preserve tone quality). He may not be the most rangy or powerful tenor, but he has the complete package. Check out this performance of “Holy Is Thy Name”:

    This song was one of my favorites when I sang with the Weatherfords. I don’t think you can beat Gus when it comes to just standing there and singing. He doesn’t have to hit every note on the keyboard to prove what he can do. He is a true tenor.
