Important Notice!!! We are currently dealing with a serious health crisis involving David. Computer time and blogging will be taking a backseat until we can get this situation under control and, hopefully, save his leg. Please bear with us as we go through this difficult time. Thank you for any prayers that you can offer up.

Also, if you'd love to help cheer him up, please subscribe to his YouTube channel. That would really make his day! The link is at the bottom of all of my posts.

Thank you and Merry Christmas to all of you!

N is for It is No Secret


Jake Hess left The Statesmen Quartet in 1963 to form his own group, The Imperials. The original Imperials were: Jake Hess, lead; Sherrill Neilsen, tenor: Gary McSpadden, baritone; and Armond Morales, bass. The pianist was Henry Slaughter.

If you've noticed Jake in the other videos, he looks very happy, very peppy. I think they all look very sad in this video, including Jake.

David and I often wonder what drove him to leave The Statesmen Quartet. He did this several times, as we understand it.

  1. Suzanne, I think it's the mood of the song that sets their expressions mainly, but then again they might be thinking about their old bud who left the group. This is a beautiful song. It really is no secret what God can do. I've seen His handiwork many times in my life and I know He will help anytime I call upon Him.

    1. That could be the case. It just had such a different feel from other things I've seen with Jake.

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting, Cathy. We are so blessed to have a Heavenly Father that hears us and is there for us.

      Have a blessed day!
