Legacy Five & Greater Vision Fan Retreat at Shipshewana Event Center

Legacy Five was organized and had their official debut in January 2000 in Atlanta, Georgia. Since that day, they have made a major mark on the Southern Gospel Music world. Immediately audiences responded overwhelmingly to their four-part harmony and their ability to effectively communicate the message of Christ. Since the quartet’s formation, they have established and maintained a firm place at the top of Christian music. Legacy Five has enjoyed more success in their short career than many groups experience in decades.
