Jubilee quartets have had a huge impact on African American history and music history together. They influenced many of the modern genres of musical styles we hear today. In music today, traditional quartets are not very common but I am certain that many groups were influenced by quartets. Groups such as Boyz II Men, Jagged Edge, Blackstreet and New Edition show that they were inspired by the quartets by dressing up and wearing suits for different performances and having 4-6 members in the group, but the groups normally did not have four different harmonizing parts. The Blind Boys of Alabama played a significant part in creating this sound and their impact is not only on African American people but the entire genre of gospel music.
