THE WALLS GROUP


 

The story behind the whirlwind musical journey of Gospel prodigies The Walls Group is nothing short of a modern-day miracle. First there was the siblings’ serendipitous introduction to their adoring fans via Facebook; then came their millions of followers on YouTube; and finally, there was that fateful phone call on Easter three years ago that changed their lives.

 


 

The good-natured Houston youth – who wowed the gospel world with their infectious whistle-and-clap-backed anthem “Perfect People” – now releases their 2nd CD a big-studio debut, Fast Forward, on Franklin’s Fo Yo Soul Recordings/RCA label.

 

 A musically forward album designed to minister to church youth and anyone of any age that has lost their faith, Fast Forward is not your typical album: it is 13 tracks of modern, up-beat and progressive music with strong gospel influences that’s presented in a way this generation can relate to.

 

“We decided to name the album Fast Forward for two reasons,” explains Darrel. “One, everything seemed to just happen so fast -- one day we were making music independently and posting footage of us singing in our living room on YouTube, then flash, Kirk Franklin calls. Flash again, we’re the first group signed to his label. Flash, we completed the album and we’re on the road touring with Tye Tribbett,” he says.  “Second, we believe our sound represents the future of gospel music.”

 

 

Franklin, who produced Fast Forward, knew right away that he had stumbled upon some incredible young soldiers for Christ. “I was blown away first by their ages,” recounts the 9-time Grammy Award winner. “This genre doesn't showcase a lot of young talent, so seeing a whole family of kids be so unapologetic about their faith and backing it up with strong, innovative talent was too appealing to pass up.”

 

Inspired by the group’s multi-generational appeal, Franklin put pen to his investment, writing 8 of the album’s 10 songs. “Star factor in my genre is not defined the way it is in secular music,” he continues. “It's not just the charisma or vocal acrobatics but the ability to communicate the faith that is engaging and motivates people not only to grab the message but to be pulled into the messenger as well.”

 

On the hip-hop-inspired “Love on the Radio,” the album’s second single, the young adults assert their strong faith, asking the DJ, “If I talk about Jesus can I get some love on the radio? / I know it’s not easy, but Mr. DJ please / I gotta let the world know.”

 

Rhea, who admits she had a hard time trading her first love, track and field, for the studio, says she’s gained inspiration from “Great Is Your Love,” a beautiful ballad that Darrel wrote and produced. “Great is Your love for me / Grace ever flowing / I am amazed at how much You care for me,” they sing.

 

 

The whole group was psyched when Franklin recruited R&B star Brandy Norwood for “God on My Mind.” The soulfully introspective, urban ballad pays special homage to the celebrated singer’s 1994 hit “Always On My Mind.” They also felt blessed that Christian hip-hop rapper Lecrae joined them on their crowning tribute to the Great I Am on  “High”--riding a digitally sophisticated track with old-school roots, the Art of Noise classic “Moments in Love.”  

 

Ahjah, who says music helped her get through some of the “worst years of her life,” considers “Freedom,” another Darrel composition, to be a spiritual touchtone.

 

The whole group co-signs the soul-searching and churchy “Satisfied,” saying it reminds them to keep their eyes on the true prize. “If I never get that house, that car / Or be a superstar / And my dreams, never come true / Will I be satisfied with You
