Ron began singing at the age of three, singing with his parents group called “The Good News Quartet” at Masonic Temple in Detroit. Ron was also a member of the Keynotes, who were blessed to appear in 1974 on the Grand Ole Opry.
In the years following Ron also sang with The Royalaires Trio, and then in 1996 became a member of The Chapels, who at that time were based out of First Baptist.
