Not only does he bare the same name as Southern Gospel legends, The Lefevre Trio, but Mike LeFevre also carries on the tradition of great music from a passionate heart. Born and raised in Southern Gospel, Mike knew at an early age this was more than just something to do, it was a calling.
As a child, Mike remembers the days of wanting to join his well-known family members, “It was my dream to sing with The LeFevres … but by the time I was old enough they were retiring!” Despite the missed chance to join his extended family on stage, Mike was soon standing alongside uncle Alf LeFevre and learning all he could. “He really showed us the ropes and took us out on the road and got us started,” Mike said reminiscing about his younger days, “I credit a lot of my early years in Gospel music to uncle Alf.”
With the days of traveling with his uncle long behind him, Mike LeFevre continues to make an impact in Southern Gospel music. In 2005, Mike formed The LeFevre Quartet. In just a short period of time, the group grabbed the attention of the Gospel music community as if they had a legendary name like … LeFevre.
As Mike sat in the congregation, a particular sermon seemed to hit home. When the pastor spoke about God-given gifts and how we should be using them, the future ahead was clear for Mike and his family.
Now teaming with lead singer and son Jordan LeFevre, Brandon Barry singing bass, and tenor Harold Reed, The LeFevre Quartet can look at a packed tour schedule (which always includes a visit to NQC!), the friends that wait for them at each stop, and know they are truly blessed to be living out a calling. As the group headed toward their next stop, Mike found some time to talk about the week of National Quartet Convention, how he got to where he is today, and the importance of family along the way.
