"It's definitely the fastest viral song I've done here."

"One song. Just for fun."
That's what we thought when we entered the studio in September 2019. Very quickly, we learned that God had an entirely different plan. And God's amazing plan has changed our lives.
First came a suggestion from our producer, Marshall Block, to co-write more songs together. So we did!
Then, fans across the world began responding to our debut single, Soulblind. We were then nominated for four 2020 Detroit Music Awards, with Mindi being voted as a Finalist in the Outstanding Christian Vocalist category.
And just over 100 days after our debut song's release, we were stunned (and blessed) to see we had Facebook followers in all but two countries on the planet. Today, they number over 100,000!
Our fifth song, Not That Different, was released in August 2020 on the first anniversary of our joining together as a musical team. We are just blown away that our songs have streamed well over one million times!
2021 brought further recognition from our musical peers. We were incredibly blessed to be voted as Finalists in the Detroit Music Awards in four categories: Outstanding Christian Group, Outstanding Christian Songwriters, Outstanding Christian Vocalist, and Outstanding Christian Instrumentalist.
God's plan is infinitely more amazing than our little plan, and we will let Him take us and our music wherever He wishes us to go.
