Biography of Richard Alan Luster Sr.
Richard Alan Luster Sr. or Rick as he is called was born in Chapel Hill North Carolina on August 29,1961. He was raised up in Durham, North Carolina. Rick is from a family of nine brothers and five sisters. His father died when he was only 1 years old. His mother was left to raise all 15 children on her on. However, Rick’s mom was a prayer warrior. She prayed night and day for her children until 1984 when God called her home. The prayers that his mother prayed were definitely not in vain. Through her travailing prayers, most of the family members have been saved and have been blessed with the talent to sing and play musical instruments. In 1975, Rick joined four of his brothers to help form the group called the Luster Brothers. They ministered the gospel throughout the Raleigh-Durham area. Rick stayed with the group for six years. While with the group he and his youngest brother Darrell were presented with the opportunity to travel professionally with a well-known group called the Hi-way QC’s. This venture for Rick and Darrell was an opportunity to share with others God’s message through songs and their talent of singing and playing the guitars, which God had so richly blessed them with. In 1983, after being with the Hi-way QC’S, the Lord blessed Rick and Darrell with the opportunity to help start a brand new group along with well known member of The Sensational Nightingales. This Gentleman is known as Charles Johnson. The Group would go on to be called Charles Johnson and The Revivers. This group consisted of Rick, Darrell, and Charles. They went on to gain great success in the gospel music industry with songs like “I Can’t Even Walk”, “I’ve Been Sealed”, “I’ll See You In The Rapture”, and many others.
