The Walls Group
The history of American Urban music is sprinkled with notable young talented singing groups and bands. From the The Clark Sisters to the Williams Brothers, brothers and sisters banning their musical talents together have kept generations of music lovers entertained and captivated. There is a new generation of gifted kinfolk and the word on The Walls Group is spreading quickly throughout Gospel and Christian music. From deep in the heart of Texas comes The Walls Group. Darrel 22, Rhea 17, Paco 16, and Ahjah 15, are the singing four of eight children born to Roger and Alicia Walls. With musically inclined parents, these kids could not escape the melodies and harmonies that coursed throughout the household and seeped into their souls.
The Walls are on a fast track to music notoriety, but under the watchful eye and firm hands of parents who have instilled the Word of God into them. Ministry is the heart of The Walls Group and singing is the vessel in which to tell of the good news. Their youthful voices stand toe to toe with some of the leading gospel artist today. Worship, contemporary gospel and a blend of urban pop comes alive with their charming charisma and stage presence.
The Walls Group is incredibly talented but remain grounded in family values and dedicated to ministry. They love spending time with their granny, Bayonne Moody and are always listening to music by their favorites Kim Burrell, Kiki Sheard, The Soul Seekers, Mary Mary, and Dorinda Clark- Cole. They are just an ordinary bunch of kids, living a pretty ordinary life, but are aspiring to do extraordinary things.
“The Walls have an undeniable family bond and sound. It’s so refreshing to see this group of brothers and sisters united in harmony and in spirit. After experiencing The Walls, you won’t be the same. I love seeing family and ministry merge into something powerful. Yes, that’s The Walls”
