Just Having Church
The Highway Travelers Began more than 40 years ago with a vision of Deacon James & Pastor Hattie Mickens. Singing was something Deacon Mickens loved to do, so he and Pastor Mickens formed a group. The group consisted of their thirteen children, "The Mickens Children" and they named themselves The Highway Travelers. Over the years as the children grew older there were some changes. Eventually, The Highway Travelers just grew apart. Rev. Matthew Mickens, the fourth of "The Mickens Children" always desired to sing quartet. In 1997 the vision of Deacon James & Pastor Hattie Mickens was brought back to existence by Rev. Matthew Mickens. He formed a group just as his parents did. This time he named the group Rev. Matthew Mickens & The New Highway Travelers. The group now consist of Rev. Matthew Mickens, lead vocalist; Justin Mickens, lead vocalist, lead guitarist and son of Rev. Mickens; Colton Mickens, vocalist, bass guitarist and son of Rev Mickens; Brandon Brown, drummer. Rev. Matthew Mickens & The New Highway Travelers have released five albums entitled; "It's Time to be Real!", "What Kind of Power Do You Have?", "Time Is Short", "Free At Last" and "Just Having Church". The New Highway Travelers are on their way to releasing many more albums glorifying God.
