The Open Door was formed in 1971 at Phillips University in Enid Oklahoma. The group sang at the Maranatha coffee house on Friday nights and then began to sing for churches and schools. The group changed over time. The lead singers hereĀ are Steve Baldwin, Kristin Karrenbrock, EK Bruhn, and Kent Dorsey. Many tapes were destroyed in a fire in 1975 but this was off a reel to reel practice tape.
