Come on in and join this Harrisburg-based gospel group for an hour of original songs that will make you dance, pray, and sing for joy. Performing together for over 30 years at area churches, family celebrations, community picnics, and festivals, their work is about ministering to the local community and “saving souls, one song at a time.”

Some of the original members of the group are part of the Great Migration Generation of African Americans moving north from the South in search of better jobs. They grew up not only hearing gospel music in their churches, but listening to the Grand Ole Opry on the radio. This mix shows up in their music; from R&B to County, from Spirituals to Jazz. Lead singer and spiritual leader Reverend Moses Jackson recently received a PA Apprenticeship award to pass along his particular style of vocal ministering to his son, and drummer, Anthony. You may have heard their music on September 9th as part of the Hear from Harrisburg series. Come meet them in person and “Let it Be Real.”
