Arden, North Carolina (August 2, 2019) â€”Â The Kingdom HeirsÂ are illustrating why theyâ€™ve been noted as one of the top quartets in Southern Gospel music with their latest album,Â Everything In Between, featuring full quartet tunes, a cappella hymns and lively instrumentals.Â Everything In BetweenÂ is now available forÂ pre-order.
Due out fromÂ Sonlite RecordsÂ on September 27, Everything In Between allows The Kingdom Heirsâ€™ broad talents to shine. Each style lifts up praise to the Lord for all Heâ€™s done for us on Earth.
The album begins withÂ â€œJust Drink The Water,â€Â a new song from the pens ofÂ Lee Black, Gina BoeÂ andÂ Jerry SalleyÂ about wanting to be a witness of Christâ€™s love and spreading His message to as many people as possible. Then,Â The Kingdom HeirsÂ invite all toÂ â€œCome To The Wellâ€Â 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 vocalistÂ Jeff ChapmanÂ on the verses with the group joining on the chorus, and embodies the heart of Southern Gospel traditions.
â€œThat 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.â€
The soulfulÂ â€œI Have Overcomeâ€Â features the full group and band, ending with power and convictionÂ as it tells of rejoicing how God has already faced any battles we will on earth.
The Kingdom Heirsâ€™Â instrumental work shines on their rendition ofÂ â€œSweet By And By,â€Â a classic hymn immediately recognizable with the joyful piano ofÂ Andy Stringfield. The album features two other instrumentals.Â â€œCrying In The Chapelâ€Â has a swing feel of theÂ Elvis PresleyÂ classic andÂ â€œHe Set Me Freeâ€Â is a true old fashioned country church hymn put to a Southern Gospel feel.
â€œHoly, Holy Is What The Angels Sing,â€Â 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.Â The Kingdom Heirsâ€™Â voices and harmonies shine as they share the emotion that will come upon reaching heaven.
Other songs include the a cappellaÂ â€œNothinâ€™s Gonna Keep Me Downâ€Â andÂ â€œReady For Gloryâ€Â andÂ â€œIâ€™ll Never Get Over The Blood That Iâ€™m Under,â€Â featuring the full group.
Everything In BetweenÂ closes withÂ â€œHigh On Zionâ€™s Mountainâ€Â a powerful song penned by one of the group’s favorite writers,Â 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,Â The Kingdom HeirsÂ praise and worship the Lord with each song onÂ Everything In Between. Whether itâ€™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.
