The Kingdom Heirs’ broad talents shine on Everything In Between

Written by Staff on August 2, 2019 – 11:08 am -

The Kingdom Heirs’ broad talents shine on Everything In BetweenArden, North Carolina (August 2, 2019) — The Kingdom Heirs are illustrating why they’ve been noted as one of the top quartets in Southern Gospel music with their latest album, Everything In Between, featuring full quartet tunes, a cappella hymns and lively instrumentals. Everything In Between is now available for pre-order.

Due out from Sonlite Records on September 27, Everything In Between allows The Kingdom Heirs’ broad talents to shine. Each style lifts up praise to the Lord for all He’s done for us on Earth.

The album begins with “Just Drink The Water,” a new song from the pens of Lee Black, Gina Boe and Jerry Salley about wanting to be a witness of Christ’s love and spreading His message to as many people as possible. Then, The Kingdom Heirs invite all to “Come To The Well” in an upbeat song about all being welcome at the healing stream.

The title track follows, reminding that no matter what happens in life, Jesus is the first, last and everything in between, something the Bible will tell us if we turn to it. With an upbeat, country feel, this song features bass vocalist Jeff Chapman on the verses with the group joining on the chorus, and embodies the heart of Southern Gospel traditions.

“That water-walking savior who can calm a raging sea
Who rules this mighty universe and still has time for me
My doctor and my lawyer, any day my coming King,
Jesus is the first, the last and everything in between.”

Kingdom HeirsThe soulful “I Have Overcome” features the full group and band, ending with power and conviction as it tells of rejoicing how God has already faced any battles we will on earth.

The Kingdom Heirs’ instrumental work shines on their rendition of “Sweet By And By,” a classic hymn immediately recognizable with the joyful piano of Andy Stringfield. The album features two other instrumentals. “Crying In The Chapel” has a swing feel of the Elvis Presley classic and “He Set Me Free” is a true old fashioned country church hymn put to a Southern Gospel feel.

Holy, Holy Is What The Angels Sing,” sung a cappella, is an old church hymn that tells of the joy salvation will bring and what it will be like to join the choir of angels. The Kingdom Heirs’ voices and harmonies shine as they share the emotion that will come upon reaching heaven.

Other songs include the a cappella “Nothin’s Gonna Keep Me Down” and “Ready For Glory” and “I’ll Never Get Over The Blood That I’m Under,” featuring the full group.

Everything In Between closes with “High On Zion’s Mountain” a powerful song penned by one of the group’s favorite writers, Dianne Wilkinson. With grand music, it tells of the glorious day when we reach Heaven and the beauty that will be found there.

With their vocal and instrumental abilities, The Kingdom Heirs praise and worship the Lord with each song on Everything In Between. Whether it’s a powerful song with the full group, a moving instrumental or a smooth a cappella tune, this album has something for each listener looking to lift up the Lord and His message.

Pre-order Everything In Between HERE.

Prayers Needed…..

Written by scoopsnews on October 26, 2017 – 6:59 am -

Please Pray for Loren’s Mom.

From Loren:

Prayer Warriors. My family needs you today. My mother has fallen and broken her hip where the femur and hip meet. She was at a women’s retreat in Pigeon Forge when she fell down a flight of stairs. They will do the surgery today at the Leconte Medical Center in Sevierville. I rarely ever do this on here because I know everyone has their own problems and storms they’re dealing with but many of you I have confidence in to get a prayer thru for mom and dad. I love and appreciate you all.

KINGDOM HEIRS NARROW SEARCH

Written by Staff on April 14, 2015 – 12:29 pm -

Kingdom Heirs with Andy Stringfield at baritone

Kingdom Heirs with Andy Stringfield at baritone

By Robert York

Back in September 2014,  the Kingdom Heirs’ baritone singer resigned from the group. Andy Stringfield, pianist for the group, started filling both positions –

singing and playing – during the remainder of the season at Dollywood. Traveling during their off season, the group began the search for a new baritone. The double duty for Andy was a great load for one person to do.

The Kingdom Heirs auditioned around 60 men who had applied for the position.  With their touring season ending, they narrowed the search down to three men.
With the opening of Dollywood’s 30th year and Kingdom Heirs’ 30th year singing at the park, they were scheduled for weekend shows

during the month of April, which was Dollywood’s International Festival. To make the final decision for the baritone position they brought each of the selected men to sing on four shows per weekend.

Bryan Walker, known for being a contestant on the TV series American Idol and as a member of The Perrys, was the first one to appear on stage with The Kingdom Heirs. Following Bryan came Loren Harris, another of the Perrys’ former members.  The third and final singer to audition, was Brian Alvey, who is known through the music industry.  He sang with Tribute Quartet and is married to

Lauren Talley.

You can visit the Kingdom Heirs’ website and find photos and video clips of these three on stage with The Kingdom Heirs.
Who will be the new baritone for the Kingdom Heirs? Whomever it is will be the singer that God lays on the heart of the men to select.  Everyone has a voice in the selection, and any one of these three vocalists will be a great choice for the position.
