Welcome Home a song written by Billy Fields was the 2nd radio single that the group released and is currently on the National Charts , and is the bands first top 40 song topping out at # 25 in the Nation. The 3rd release What A Prayer Can Do written by Mike Upright is set to hit radio very soon!

We are a Live Band and travel all across the US singing concerts at Churches, Fairs, and other Concert settings. The Band was also named Band of the year during the 2019 Gospel Music Fanfair awards presented by the Christian Voice Magazine, where they where nominated with our Nationally known groups such as The Singing Cookes and The Freemans to name a few. Our goal is to help everyone covert their life to the Lord by obeying the Spirit. We don't play from a set list, or an itinerary, we hand it over to the Lord and let Him be in charge.
