TBT: Take 6

Thursday, February 15, 2018

Join The Band LP coverTake 6 was formed in 1980 at Oakwood College in Huntsville, AL. Their tight, six-part harmonies created such a lush, rich sound that the group needed no instrumentation and they performed and recorded as a strictly a cappella group until their third album, the 1991 “He Is Christmas.” Their next two studio releases, “Join The Band” in 1994 and “Brothers” in 1996 also featured instruments. The group returned to a cappella arrangements with the 1998 release “So Cool.”

The group has won 10 Grammy Awards and 10 Dove Awards. They’ve recorded and performed with a diverse group of artists, including Ray Charles, Don Henley, Whitney Houston, Quincy Jones, k.d. lang, Brian McKnight, CeCe Winans, the Manhattan Transfer, Ella Fitzgerald and Stevie Wonder.

Their cover of the 1 Ambrosia song “Biggest Part Of Me,” reworked for more of a Christian message, was included on their 1994 album, “Join The Band,” and received significant airplay on Contemporary Christian radio.

Here’s the video version of the Take 6 cover of “Biggest Part Of Me,” released in 1994 on the album “Join The Band.”

From the 1996 album “Brothers,” here’s the video of “Sing A Song.”
