They receive radio air play on several radio stations through out the USA, including 94.1 WHJY, 95.5 WBRU, 90.1 WYCM, to name a few.

"Very impressive is the blend and harmony of sisters Nicole and Danielle who are a nice contrast to Chris."
"All About You is my pick-hit single. A great praise tune, with a large hook and some fine musicianship. King of Day is a prayer for assistance. Nicole wants a deeper walk, a bigger step. "Calling on You just to help me through, what kind of day will it be, it's really up to me". That's maturity. And the theology understands that we have a role in God's work. Remind Me Of The Reason finds Nicole questioning stuff and feeling a little insecure. I love this concept, because so may of us think we have it all figured out. And just when we think we do, God steps in and shows us something more. Great song, and as I said earlier, thoughful lyrics."

"Truth is a killer" is their dance floor number, so be prepared to follow my lead if they decide to play it. Pointe Blanke is safe music for these dangerous times.
