In My Father's House Live
Vincent Tillman & God's Family In the year 2000, Minister Vincent Tillman was commanded by God to share the music, in which He had given him, with the world. Upon accepting the command, Tillman began revealing the call to and collaborating with his life-long musician friends, who are now known as DA BAND. At this particular time, Tillman had songs, musicians, financial support, and a name for the background vocals. The only thing that was missing was the personnel for the background, which would be known as GOD'S FAMILY. Understanding the importance of ministry, Tillman began seeking the Lord to whom should make up this specific group of individuals. After several weeks of fasting & praying, God directed Tillman to the seven individuals who would initially make up God's Family. The group's first rehearsal was held at the Harding Street Church of God, Kannapolis, NC were they still rehearse to date. Their rehearsals were and are still electrifying as they give God the praise with everything they have. It is Tillman's motto to: "..Bless the Lord at all times and His praise shall continually be in my mouth". (Psalm 34:1) As God's Family prepared to full-fill the command of God, performance opportunities started coming in. The group first live performance took place, in front of almost 5,000 people, at the 2000 Rhythm & Blues Festival in Charlotte, NC. In no way did the majority R&B crowd, in attendance, intimidate the group. Instead, God's Family received rave reviews from those in attendance and other performing artist on the ticket such as The Temptation Review, Freddy Jackson, and Vesta. The group later took stage with gospel great Hezekiah Walker and Kurt Carr. Again, God's Family received much praise from the 2,500+ individuals in attendance. While working to full-fill God's command, the group wasn't excluded from the trials & tribulations that we all face from day to day. Management issues, personnel changes, sickness, and tricks from the enemy slowed the process. However, God's Family stayed the course and was able to release their first project, "Walking in the Light", in November of 2002. The project experienced great success and the anticipation for their next CD began to grow. The next few years would take God's Family through more trying times. God called one of their most faithful members home, while at the same time personnel continued to change. Even though the lost was a very sad moment for the group, the personnel changes worked in their behalf. The change brought new faces, extremely talented musicians, and creative writers to the group. Tillman and God's Family quickly realized that God was working things out for their good and the stage for their new project was set. On August 13, 2005, Tillman, along with God's Family, walked out on faith and recorded their sophomore project "In My Father's House - Live". Almost 1 year later, after months of overdubs, re-recording, fixes, and accumulating funds, "In My Father's House - Live" is set to release on Tuesday, August 8, 2006. God's Family delivers a wide variety of styles (from Praise & Worship to Hip-hop) on this project. The 13 track CD is expected to do very well in the Gospel Music Industry. Music lovers everywhere should add this awesome project to their collection.
