A New Album, Along With a New Radio Single from The Harris Family

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on March 11, 2012 – 6:12 pm -

(PASADENA, TX)The Harris Family is celebrating the release of a brand new album. Created to Worship is the 5thstudio recording from this Texas based family group, who traveled to South Carolina to work with their trusted friend and long-time music producer, Art Bain, who says, “As a producer, working with the Harris Family is PURE JOY! These folks truly have an understanding of what music is supposed to sound like . . . they are expert at harmony and great arrangements.”

Group members Sue Harris and Kristen Harris Johnson penned six of the twelve songs on this recording. Other songs include one cover song, originally recorded in 2001 by the then popular Contemporary Christian group FFH, as well as five songs written by some of the most respected writers in Christian music today. The title for the project was taken from a song written by Chris Allman, I Was Created to Worship the Lord, which happens to be the group’s first radio single from the project. That song, being distributed through Radioactive Airplay, scored the number 1 spot on the Radio Music Week Top 100 Southern Gospel Music Chart in it’s first week. Charles Brady, President and Founder of Caraway Media Group, the parent company of Radioactive Airplay says, “Radio loves the Harris Family and this newest Harris Family project is already encouraging radio listeners around the world. Incredible songwriting, wonderful musical arrangements and beautiful family harmony all come together with a passion for worship that really sets this project apart!”

In addition to writing and selecting songs with a solid lyrical content, this group is careful to make sure the style and arrangements of their songs are fresh and modern. “We have learned the importance of connecting with our audience when we are in a church service or concert event,” states Sue Harris of the group. “We do not want to simply perform. We want to engage our audience to worship with us. We want to sing songs that relate to them and reach them right where they are in life. God has placed us in the middle of a very diverse group of people. Not only do we sing in small churches where most everyone is already a Christian, but we also do concerts and lead worship in large churches and prisons.” Roger Harris adds, “I believe this project is our best mix of songs to date. These songs have ministered to me personally, and I hope they will minister to all ages young, old and in between.” Kristen Harris Johnson concludes, “The diversity of the songs on this project definitely match the diversity of our audience, yet they all share the same theme: Worship! Jesus Christ is truly the name above every name, and we hope these songs reflect that truth and bring glory to Him alone.”

The Harris Family consists of Roger and Sue Harris, and their daughter, Kristen. They make their home in Pasadena, Texas and have been singing Southern Gospel music since 2003.
