Americans are some of the richest people in the world. Should we not be the most thankful? Over half of the people in the world live on less per day than this CD costs. Someone at the poverty line in the United States is in the top 14% of the global distribution of wealth! Many of us only compare our wealth with the greed around us, always longing for more. (from liner notes)
This is our burden for Give Thanks. Why not record an album to inspire others to live a more thankful life? We started compiling a list of thanksgiving and praise songs. Since we usually come up with more songs than we need, now began the project of filtering out those that would best help us “Give Thanks”.
As a quartet, we are excited for the privilege to inspire a spirit of thankfulness among God’s people. Jesus was willing to come and be the “Man of Sorrows”, winning the victory over sin and death. Because of His hand in our lives, we want to burst forth in never dying praise! We dare not stop exalting our God, whom we can never praise enough. If we fail in this job, the Bible says “Then will the very rocks cry out!” As you listen, we invite you to join us in giving thanks to our wonderful, providential Father. And, may you “Go in Joy” through all your life’s mountains and valleys. (from liner notes)
Give Thanks was recorded August 6-9, 2012 at Altar of Praise Studio. Thanks, Jonathan, for putting in some long days for the sake of this album!

I Will Sing is Vision Quartet’s first album. We made lots of memories in the studio, trying to get it right!
The “mountain” of getting a good recording, mixing and mastering the project, designing the CD artwork, and securing all the licenses looked huge, but thanks to God, we were able to get it all done in time!
We want to thank each person that was praying for us, and for all the people doing little things for us to make this project possible.
Thanks, Altar of Praise Studio, for your expertise in getting a clean, fresh sound.
Thanks, Lee Weaver, for being our producer and coaching us through the recording process.
Thanks, Mark’s Studio, for the photos and CD artwork.
Thanks, Brandon’s family, for graciously allowing us to use your basement for our rehearsals, and for feeding us yummy snacks.
Thanks, Gary’s parents, for providing lodging and meals during the recording.
And most of all, thanks to God for giving us a Message to sing about! Without all of you, this album wouldn’t be!
