Endurance CDs


Hello we’d like to introduce ourselves.  We are the 6-time Stellar Award nominated traditional gospel quartet group Endurance, based out of Houston, Texas.


Endurance is Claude Cummings, Michael Robertson, Earl Sampson and newest member, Dave Botts. Each member is actively involved in their respective churches and all are either deacons or preachers. Claude Cummings is the Chairman of the Deacon Board at Fifth Ward Missionary Baptist Church.  Michael Robertson is an Associate Minister at Pilgrim Hill Baptist Church.  Earl Sampson is a deacon at Pleasant Grove Missionary Baptist Church and Dave Botts was a deacon at Greater Christian Fellowship Baptist Church but recently answered  “A Called to Preach.”  These four spirit filled gentlemen are all Houston, Texas natives. Claude, Michael and Earl are Kashmere High School classmates who reunited some years ago to pursue a life long dream, which was to sing God’s praises and share a message of hope and deliverance.


These three along with Dave have been blessed by God to complete their latest CD project, Right On Time, also featuring Mr. Andre Tate of The Williams Brothers. The title track, “Right On Time” is their most successful single to date in terms of radio spins and record sales. There are several who have worked with Endurance over the years and the end result is a collection of uplifting song renditions filled with demonstrations of range and diversity from the marvelous talents God has blessed and entrusted them with.


Fans can tune in weekly to their radio show “The Endurance Hour” on terrestrial radio and via the internet. Hosted by group members, Claude Cummings, Jr., and Michael Robertson, along with co-host, Sharon Baldwin.  Listen Live to the best of Endurance quartet music on “The Endurance Hour” on KWWJ Gospel 1360 AM/96.9 FM radio, every Saturday, 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m./CST. Log-on to (http://www.kwwj.org). Check back soon for details on the launch of their new internet radio station on the VSC Gospel Radio platform.


“Changed” by Endurance featuring the late, Joe Ligon is their latest music offering. The single was digitally released in late January, 2017, and is impacting radio now. The song recently broke the Top 100 on the Nielsen BDS Gospel Radio Airplay Charts entering at #97. It is the last known recording by the legendary, Grammy-Award winning, lead singer of the Mighty Clouds of Joy, before his passing in 2016.  A song fans of the late singer will treasure…a true collectors item.


Endurance is currently putting finishing touches on their sixth studio album also entitled CHANGED. A subsequent project is also planned and will be produced by gospel music icon, Melvin Williams.


In addition to their ministry as recording artists, Endurance serves the community by living their motto: “Reaching God’s People Through Song”.
