As the universally recognized favorite foursome in the history of gospel quartet music, the Canton Spirituals have received numerous Stellar Awards, Dove Awards, Soul Train Awards, and Grammy nominations. As if that wasn't enough, they were included into the Mississippi Musicians Hall of Fame, a street was renamed in Canton, MS for original member Harvey Watkins, Sr., and there is even a resolution in the Mississippi State Legislature recognizing the group's artistic achievements! Now, The Canton Spirituals are back with their first studio album in three years!
Harvey Watkins, lead singer and founding member of the group, is truly passionate about this album. Watkins also shares that this CD, its songs and its concepts, are divinely inspired. AS a result, direct references to God, His majesty, His power, and His grace are the underlying running throughout each song.
With this release, The Cantons remain adamant about retaining the heart of the "quartet sound," but they are enthusiastic about incorporating fresh and new elements at the same time. Young producer Stan Jones joins in the production, teaming with longtime Canton members Watkins and Merlin Lucious. Fellow quartet legend, Lee Williams, makes a guest appearance on this release, for a moment that is nothing short of a quartet music tour de force!
