He’s the President of the Louisiana State Quartet Convention. Taylor is a loving husband, father and has been serving his church since 1986 as a ordained deacon.
“Listeners have told me they need an announcer and some music that will wake them up and get their weekend started. Tony Taylor is the person I believe who can meet that need,” said Charles Johnson, KOKA Director. “Quartet is a traditional treasure throughout the gospel community, and I want to make sure quartet gospel music lovers are being served as well.”
