Back in 2013, the Walls Group was introduced with other artists at the Stellar Awards in song, after receiving a nod from gospel legend Kirk Franklin.



Now, two years later, they walk away with two of the statues of their own. At the 30th anniversary of the Stellar Gospel Music Awards, the Walls Group won awards for Most Outstanding Gospel Group/Duo and Most Outstanding Contemporary Group/Duo. Their fame did not come overnight.

Watch this clip from them in 2003 performing at a local church event.



By 2011, they released a single Mighty You Are, it debuted on MyHoustonGOSPEL.com and later released on their self titled album to a large crowd at Greater Grace Cathedral in Houston.



Their push online and in the community allowed them to reach new audiences outside of Houston with tens of thousands of viewers on their Youtube channel, many times reaching over 100k per video.



Their talent caught the attention of Kirk Franklin in 2012–since then, their fame has reached new heights, with appearances at the Essence Festival, BET Bobby Jones Gospel, Sunday Best and even crossing the pond, with concerts in Norway.

This breakout video and single, Perfect People introduced the group to a wider audience, securing their space in gospel music and reaching a new generation of believers.



Today, with the release of their LP Fast Forward, the group has received a Grammy nomination, Billboard top 10 records, rave reviews from critics and even more of a following online, becoming the it group of gospel music. We look forward to what’s in store for this talented, gifted and blessed group. - My Houston Gospel

The quartet is nominated at the 30th Stellar Awards in the following categories: Artist of the Year, Group/Duo of the Year, CD of the Year, the Contemporary Group/Duo of the Year, Contemporary CD of the Year, and Music Video of the Year.[7] - Wikipedia


The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences announced on Friday, December 5, 2014 The Walls Group’s first Grammy nomination: Best Gospel Performance/Song for “Love on The Radio,” written by multiple Grammy-Award-winner Kirk Franklin.

“Love On The Radio” spent 17 weeks on the Gospel Radio Chart and peaked at an impressive #9 position.

“This is a special day for me and the entire Fo Yo Soul Recordings/RCA family,” said Kirk Franklin. “We are thrilled about receiving this Grammy nomination for our first signed artist, The Walls Group. I’m feeling like a proud father today!”
FAST FORWARD, the critically acclaimed album by The Walls Group, debuted at #1 on the Gospel Album Sales Chart, Billboard’s Top Christian/Gospel Albums Chart, iTunes Christian & Gospel chart, and Amazon’s Gospel chart. Executive produced by multi-platinum gospel star Kirk Franklin, FAST FORWARD features 10 tracks of modern, up-beat and progressive music with strong gospel influences. FAST FORWARD is available everywhere music is sold.

Inspired by the group’s multi-generational appeal, Franklin wrote and produced 8 of the album’s 10 songs and appears on the compelling track, “Beautiful.” Eldest member of the group, Darrel also showcased his pen, writing two tracks featured on the project, “Great Is Your Love” and “Freedom.” The album includes power collaborations with R&B artist Brandy on “God On My Mind,” and popular Christian rapper Lecrae on “High.”

The talented Houston-based siblings, Ahjah (17), Paco (18), Rhea (19) and Darrel (23) have been on the fast track to success that includes going on a national House of Blues tour with gospel phenom, Tye Tribbett , performing as BET Music Matter’s artists on 106 & PARK, and debuting a #1 selling album that received over a million streams on Spotify—but the group remains humble. The whole group co-signs the soul-searching single “Satisfied,” saying it reminds them to keep their eyes on the true prize.

GRAMMY AWARD WINNING RECORDING ARTIST AND PRODUCER
KIRK FRANKLIN
SIGNS GOSPEL MUSIC’S NEWEST SENSATION
THE WALLS GROUP

Houston, TX (August 13, 2012) - World renowned entertainer Kirk Franklin has announced the signing of The Walls Group to his company, Fo Yo Soul Entertainment. The youthful quartet of siblings, 20 year old Darrell, 16 year old Rhea, 15 year old Paco, and 14 year old Ahjah, are the first artists that Franklin has signed to Fo Yo Soul.

Hailing from Houston, TX, The Walls Group’s parents, Roger and Alicia, are both musicians and from them they learned the importance of using their gifts to help encourage and inspire others early on. Having been perfecting their skills since they were small, they recently collaborated with well respected producer Levi “Too” King and released their self-titled debut album. Later this month, The Walls Group will embark on a national tour, stopping in major cities including Lexington, KY, Indianapolis, IN, and Austin, TX.

Each member of the multi-talented Walls Group contributes their own distinct gifts to create their refreshing and unique sound that has been called “Walls Flavor”. This sound caught the attention of Franklin and he was eager to work with them and help the young artists cultivate their special talents. About signing The Walls Group to Fo Yo Soul, he offers "When I first saw a video of The Walls Group, I knew they were something special. I was truly blown away by their vocal abilities at such young ages. And when I flew down to Houston to meet them, I couldn't believe how down to earth and humble they were. I truly saw something unique in this group and I'm excited to start this new journey with The Walls." Franklin has begun working with The Walls Group on their sophomore album scheduled for release in 2013.

Kirk Franklin’s penchant for recognizing stellar talent and creating perennial music is well known and evidenced by his multi-platinum records, nine GRAMMY Awards, 35 Stellar Awards, and five NAACP Image Awards. Earlier this year, his latest CD Hello Fear earned him honors for “Best Gospel Song” and “Best Gospel Album” at the 54th Annual GRAMMYS. Franklin recently returned as host of BET’s hit competition show Sunday Best and this fall, he will head out on the road with Israel Houghton, Donnie McClurkin and Marvin Sapp for The King’s Men Tour. Franklin partnered with Live Nation for this first of its kind gospel mega tour, which kicks off in Phoenix, AZ on September 16th.

Introducing The Walls Group - Takoa Gospel Music News


The Walls Group has been getting millions of views online singing some of gospel’s greatest hits. Their cover of the Clark Sisters’ Blessed & Highly Favored now has over 300,000 views on YouTube and their other videos have tens of thousands of views.

The popular group is now taking on the music scene themselves with their single Mighty You Are. The song capitalizes on their ability to sing in perfect harmony, something that can be realized in a special way when singing with family (Ex. Clark Sisters, Winans). The song is produced by Levi “Too” King for Me Too Music and written by Alicia M. Walls.

Darrel, Rhea, Paco, and Ahjah are all young, fresh singers that need the support of the industry so we can secure a legacy for our next generation of great gospel singers.

I remember seeing them at more than one event in Houston when the sound system went haywire, they were able to sing acapella and the crowd went into praise and worship each time. They also have a supportive family, you will see parents Roger and Alicia Walls at their events making sure they are being treated fairly.

They are worth supporting and the single is worth the purchase. It will be available on Amazon Mp3, TuneCore and ITunes on August 8th. The pre-release of the single is available on their website thewallsgroup.org.

Check out a snippet of the single here: The Walls Group- Mighty You Are.

                                                THE WALLS GROUP –
THE OTHER SIDE

Houston’s The Walls Group, recently launched their
lightning rod third album, The Other Side, as electrifying singers
and songwriters destined to ascend to among the most influential young artists
in Urban and Contemporary Christian music. Riding the rocket of the album’s first single,
“My Life,” plus two Stellar Award wins, 2 Dove Award nominations, and 3 GRAMMY® nominations behind them, The Walls Group siblings Darrel,
Ahjah, Rhea  and Alic (nicknamed “Paco”) are circling in a rare orbit that is motivating a
passionate response and nurturing a new generation of young warriors to the
footprints of Jesus Christ.

The Other Side reveals us coming
from a more authentic and genuine place,” eldest member Darrel shares, “who we
were raised to be and who we have become. We love all genres of music –
musicals, country, rock, hip hop, R&B. Though we are a Gospel group, we are well rounded and diverse artists. The Other Side comes from our
perspective - how we’ve grown, how we think, how we see God, what God has shown us, and what God
put inside of us…our calling. It’s not only Gospel, it’s good music period.” It is this diversity and unique familial sound that has gained the attention of many mainstream artists, actors, and actresses.


Super producer, Warryn Campbell’s (one of the album producers)
contemporary touch stokes a fire under the group from the very first song: the
lead single “My Life,” a track
brought in by Damon Thomas of the
songwriting/production group The
Underdogs
, centering around a catch phrase the group is always saying: “He
made me great so let me be great!” Thematically, “My Life” is about the journey
of serving God in relevant new ways outside church walls. Youngest member Ahjah
explains, “As young artists in this industry, we don’t look like traditional
Christian/Gospel artists and we don’t do what traditional Christian/Gospel artists do, 
but that doesn’t mean we’re not qualified. We dance. We get hype. We’re excited about what we
do and love what we do, but it is often viewed as edgy or "outside the box". We may not fit in the traditional box, but you
can’t count us out!”

Sisters Ahjah and Rhea co-wrote the heavenly “And
You Don’t Stop,”
vibing off of a phrase that Darrel started that said,
“when my way gets a little cloudy.” “With all the places our journey has taken
us, we’ve dealt with feeling lonely,” Ahjah shares. “We’ve all sacrificed a
lot. I don’t have a lot of friends to call on but God is ever-present and consistent for
me.” That feeling is also beautifully captured in the dreamy interlude “I’m in Love.” 
All
four siblings are featured on the tastefully orchestrated ballad “My Worship,” a song Darrel started
around a haunting piano refrain about a situation all men and women face. “You
dig yourself into a big hole and the only one that can get you out is God. You
have to make room for Him to come in, clean up a few things, and just live there with you. We
added the ‘Alpha and Omega’ hook that Israel & New Breed recorded on Alive in South Africa, played it for
Israel Houghton and he loved it – told us, ‘Do whatever you want.’ "


The
strength and maturity of The Walls Group is gloriously evident on The Other
Side
. Though they have a blast bringing New Jack Swing and the days of
“House Party” back on “Don’t Cha Know,”
it’s “On The Other Side” (inspired
by sobering reality checks in the headlines such as Black Lives Matter) and “Count on You” that reflect their
expansion into Country and Rock. “We got together in Darrel’s studio to write a
song about who God is to us,” Ahjah says of “Count on You.” “We added fiddles
and washboard to give that good old school country feel.”
 

Finally,
“The Rock” is The Walls Group’s
anthem – a Rock epic inspired by Romans 8 and “The Zachariah Generation.” Darrel
witnesses, “I was begging God to please not make me aware of so many things I
was trying to ignore. He said, ‘Why don’t you trust me?’ We were on tour in Switzerland
2016 and there was no TV…nothing to do but be still. Over those three days, the
song was created.” “It’s powerful,” Rhea adds. “It always gets me through when
I’m having a hard day.”
