Who is Gateway?
Gateway is the result of 4 individual Ministries joining forces.
After spending countless hours working in Churches, on the road, behind the scenes, in concerts, and theater, we felt called to create a united ministry which presents the message of Salvation through music.
Kathy Scileppi-White: Tenor
Kathy has several years of Musical Theater and stage experience, as well as Choir and Solo history. She and Kevin traveled together with the New Covenant Singers in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. After 3 decades, they reunited in 2015, and felt called to work together once again, singing as a duet. While Gateway was in the early stages of being formed, Kathy was the first to join.
Kevin Bailey: Lead
Kevin’s musical history began as a musician playing Trombone and Bass guitar, travelling with different big bands and combos. In 1981, as a bass player for Harvest, he stepped in to the front line as a their Baritone singer. From there he sang with a few different groups before joining the Regents of Southern California, where he stayed for 18 years. After retiring from the group, he began singing solo dates, and in 2009, he joined Crimson River Quartet as their Lead singer. Kevin filled that spot for 5 years. Currently Kevin sings the Lead vocal for Gateway and handles our operations and bookings.
Billy Graham: Baritone
Billy started singing as a soloist in March of 1979. He has performed in concerts with multiple artists, including The Regents, The Roberts, Harvest, & Country Gospel Jubilee. Billy has also run a successful carpet business for over 20 years in Southern California. Billy was a top contestant in the Western States Gospel Music Association Talent show in 2000. He and his wife, Kathie, reside in Hemet, CA
Gil Ramirez, Jr.: Bass
Gil has been featured with several groups, such as, The Southern Journeymen, Golden State Quartet, The Blue Diamonds, and The Regents. Gil was privileged to fill-in with the Legendary Blackwood Brothers Quartet a few years ago during their west coast tour. Gil’s solo Ministry has been in full force during the last few years, and we feel fortunate to have him with us.
Gil and his wife, Susan, Reside in Riverside, CA
We are asking for your prayers and support as we step out on this endeavor.
