Curry Jr., the group has won or been nominated for every major music award - Grammy, Stellar, Dove, Soul Train, NARM Best Sellers Award, Billboard Magazine Outstanding Achievement Award, as well as the Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts. Success came quickly with their first three recordings reaching the number one position on the Billboard Top Forty Gospel Chart. Two recordings reached the number two position, with the subsequent recordings all reaching the top ten. They are dubbed by many as “The World’s Greatest Choir.”
After celebrating 20 years of music ministry, the choir’s main focus remains lifting up the name of Jesus.
