Multi-Generational Appeal | Posted September 15, 2014
The Walls Family from Houston, Texas is making quite the buzz with their mostly acapella renditions of worship and gospel songs. Darrell (23), Rhea (18), Paco (18) and Ahjah (17) released a self-titled debut, a project which garnered critical acclaim and more opportunities to minister around the country.

Their career really took off when Kirk Franklin stepped into the picture, blown away by the group's YouTube cover of his song "The Appeal." Kirk signed them to his Fo Yo Soul Entertainment label, and with his support behind them, this year they released Fast Forward.

The radio friendly and catchy lead single "Perfect People" was accompanied by an impressive music video. Though they are youthful in style, their songs will still appeal to a wide age range.

With the ongoing (and sometimes tiresome) debate about how much or how little Christian artists should mention the name of Jesus, The Walls Group asks the question of whether they can get some "Love On the Radio" if they talk about Him. This song challenges radio to play songs that proclaim His name. The song's pace is midtempo, but contains some interpolations of Kirk Franklin and the Family's previous  "He's Able."

"Big Brother" puts the greatness of our Lord into perspective. They reference His royalty, but relish the idea that he still knows our names and will step in like a heroic big brother. Things smooth out on "High" with a pulsating beat and borrowed ode to the Art of Noise's "Moments in Love". When you are cooking and you find that last ingredient to make your meal perfect, it's a great feeling. Lecrae's rap does just that for this already strong song. Brandy Norwood's vocals do the same thing on the urban ballad "God On My Mind." The singing that Brandy and The Walls Group display is smooth and so flawless.

"Beautiful" (featuring Kirk Franklin) showcases the nice harmonies of the group as they draw inspiration from Ecclesiastes 3:11: "He has made everything beautiful in its time." This is definitely a standout song.

Closing Thoughts:
The Walls Group has just gotten started, and things will only continue to look up for them. Fast Forward fits their style, and it will be both loved by their young peers and appreciated and enjoyed by those who are older. Kudos to Kirk Franklin for seeing the great talent and providing a bigger platform for them to be a godly example to today's youth.
