The Showers have been garnering national attention since the release of their 1st single "Praise Your Way Through" which peaked in the Top 30 on the Mediabase Gospel Songs Chart. The group debuted the single in November 2013 on highly rated Bobby Jones Gospel Show on BET. The group released their follow-up single "Better" written and produced by budding gospel artist Deon Kipping. Gospel greats Donnie McClurkin, Tamela Mann and R&B songstress Kelly Price performed the song at a pre-oscar event in Hollywood earlier this year after hearing The Showers deliver a powerful performance of the song.

About The Showers:
Comprised of ten real life siblings, The Showers are the latest family collective to take the gospel music scene by storm. Quickly likened to the genre’s prized family acts The Winans, The Hawkins, and more, the Louisiana natives first gained notoriety aboard the success of their top-selling 2009 independent debut album “Hear My Prayer”. Going on to land the group top industry honors from Rhythm of Gospel to En-Sound Awards, the album also courted acclaim from some of entertainment’s most endeared critics.
Their highly anticipated, self-titled follow-up album, due soon, will act as the group’s national debut. Led by the empowerment anthem “Praise Your Way Through”, featuring production from Bruce Robinson, Jr. (Justin Bieber, Fantasia, Joshua Rogers) and vocal production from Grammy® award winner Myron Butler (Tamela Mann, Marvin Sapp) and Shawn Willis, the song made its way through to the Top 30 on the Mediabase Gospel Songs Chart with an accumulative listening audience of over 1 million ears.
