Each member brought a different dynamic to the group and helped make it what it is today.

Their repertoire of songs have included such top radio singles as, “Come To The Fountain", “I’ve Been Touched", "I Feel Like Running", "Come On In", "Borrowed and Barely Used Tomb", "Resting Place", "I'll Meet You On The Mountain"  along with their first  #1, "Giver of Life". While continuing to produce top charting hits , the legacy they were founded upon still remains their guiding principle and their #1 mission-seeing lives changed.
