2nd Chance Ministries is excited to introduce their new tenor, Brian Alvey.

Alvey was born in southern Indiana into a musical family. At age three, he began playing drums with his family group and, shortly after, started singing. From a young age, his desire was to travel and sing after hearing his favorite group, Gold City. That opportunity came along in 2009 when he joined Gary Casto, Josh Singletary and Dennis Dugger as tenor for Tribute Quartet. He would later join the prestigious Kingdom Heirs at Dollywood.

Alvey has enjoyed songwriting success with top ten songs on the Singing News chart and was nominated in the top ten vocal categories in the Singing News fan awards. While with Tribute, the group was awarded the Singing News Fan Awards “Horizon Group of the Year”, and Brian had the privilege to be part of the Kingdom Heir Band that won the Singing News “Band of the Year.”

On joining 2nd Chance Ministries, Brian Alvey said, “This has been a God thing from the outset. 2nd Chance is truly a ministry in every sense of the word, and that’s what I and my family love about it. Ricky, Brandon, Wayne, Donnie, and Randy have welcomed us with open arms. We are looking forward to many years of serving with this great group of people and can’t wait to see lives changed – all to the glory of God.”

2nd Chance group owner Ricky Malloy added, “I’m excited! God had the perfect plan all along. We met with Brian several times , and he went on the road with us a couple weeks.  Brandon and I knew right from thejump that he was the exact fit for us.”

Gary Casto said, “For thirty-eight years, I’ve had the distinct privilege of working with some of Gospel Music’s finest talents. Where Tribute Quartet is concerned, Brian Alvey provided a brilliant quality of musicianship as a vocalist and instrumentalist.”

Jeffrey Chapman added, “Brian has an incredible range vocally and can sing any style. He sings with so much feeling and you can tell he’s singing from his heart and a love for God.”

Brian and his wife, Amber, live in Florence, South Carolina with their children and their puppy, Ollie.
