Jubilee quartets were popular African-American religious singing groups during the early part of the 20th century. This style of music grew from universities to churches, incorporating a rhythmic beat into the energetic gospel music coming out of the Holiness churches.
Of these many jubilee quartets, the Golden Gate Jubilee Quartet became the most successful of all the jubilee Doo-Wop quartets, gaining nationwide popularity through radio broadcasts, records and touring in the 1930s and 1940s. Their recording of Found A Wonderful Savior first appeared on a 45 record as the B side to Bedside of A Neighbor, in 1937.
The Golden Gates, as they were later known with an ever changing lineup over the years, revived their career in 1955. When they toured Europe, they became widely popular and moved to Paris in 1959. They continued touring, primarily in Europe and were inducted into The Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1998.
