The Six Voices of Zion was organized in 1958 by Jimmy Augusta, and in 1959 Andrew Evans joined the group as manager, and he continues to manage the rich and widely ranging voices today.

The Six Voices of Zion of Columbia, SC started their recording career in 1967 with a 45 that was released on both Pitch and Gusman. In the early seventies they recorded one 45 for HSE, before returning to Pitch/Gusman in 1973. They recorded another four 45s for Pitch, and two albums. One album was released on Gusman, the other one on Pitch.

Last year (in 2008), the South Carolina House Of Representatives has adopted a Resolution to recognize and honor « the legendary gospel singers known as the Six Voices Of Zion. »
