Cheryl's husband, Mark Anderson, acts as our "roadie," runs the sound board, cues our tracks, and is our primary driver! When not on the road with Victorious, Mark serves as a sound engineer and Trustee for his home church. Mark's an invaluable member of the VICTORIOUS TRIO team!
Our short history: The 2020 Pandemic actually created Victorious! With churches closed, when Easter 2020 approached, Rich and Linda Sue's neighborhood was not going to let Easter go by without having church! Twenty-five people gathered in their cul-de-sac and asked Rich and Linda Sue to provide special music. They set up their sound system through 150-feet of extension cords! The service was so loved by everyone that "Cul-de-sac Church" continued every Sunday through October (when it simply got too cold)! A few weeks in, the Treptows had run out of duet music and called their friend, Cheryl, then a soloist, to join them. She sent two accompaniment tracks to Rich, who arranged harmony parts, and then two additional tracks for several weeks thereafter. Before long, they had a repertoire, and the cul-de-sac neighbors all encouraged them to stay together as a trio, and voila! - VICTORIOUS was born!
