Ernie Haase / Full name Raymond Ernest Haase III (born December 12, 1964) is an American singer. He is best known as the tenor vocalist and founder of Ernie Haase and Signature Sound[1] (Founded Sept 2002) and the former tenor vocalist of the legendary Southern gospel group The Cathedrals (Ret 1999).

Ernie Haase and Signature Sound[edit]

After The Cathedral Quartet retired in 1999, he embarked upon a solo career for a couple of years. In addition to his solo concerts, he performed from 2001 through 2003 with Jake Hess, Wesley Pritchard, and George Younce in the Old Friends Quartet. After the Old Friends Quartet disbanded due to the ill health of Younce and Hess, Haase founded the group Signature Sound Quartet, Inc; the group was rebranded by their record label, The Gaither Music Group, to "Ernie Haase and Signature Sound", to take advantage of the platform of The Cathedral Quartet[2] and Haase's popularity as their final tenor.

The Cathedral Quartet[edit]

The Cathedrals' bass vocalist, George Younce witnessed Haase's performance many times and marked his fast growth as a vocalist and communicator. In April of 1990 he, along with co-founder Glen Payne, invited him to join the Cathedrals as their tenor.[3]

Personal life[edit]

Ernie Haase married George Younce's third daughter Lisa in 1990 after a brief courtship.[4]
