Acappella has been spreading its message of musical praise since the mid '80s, long before Take 6 and other vocal groups developed a large following. Their 1991 album, We Have Seen His Glory, amply displays Acappella's diverse influences, from doo-wop ("Glory in His Name") to gospel ("Angels Long to Look Into These Things") to Caribbean ("Talk to Jah"). The roster for this album consisted of singers Duane Adams, Wayburn Dean, Gary Moyers, and George Pendergrass. Group brainchild Keith Lancaster provides most of the words and music, much of it adapted from scripture, while Adams and Pendergrass also contribute. The songs are always celebratory but never preachy. --David Horiuchi

"I have six of Acappella's albums, and this one is definately their best. Acappella's style is very positive and uplifting, and their concerts are fun to go to as well. I have never heard anything quite like them. If your're going to buy something Acappella, buy this Album!You can find Acappella on the web."
Fan of vocals or of gospel, either way this is incredible!

"This CD is the very best street-style acappella gospel album I have come across. In the same vein as Take 6, this group stretches the definition of vocal harmony to reflect the true use of the voice as an instrument. From a formal perspective, the song selections reflect numerous vocal patterns and styles of harmony; this prevents monotony and truly showcases the talents of these singers. From true gospel to Reggae, from suspended 9ths to multiple modulations, this album mixes it up and has you wondering how they managed to follow their own charts.While the group itself has gone through numerous iterations and thus each album reflects a change in personnel, this album truly reflects the best of the concept and contained the most talented group.This CD is recommended for fans of vocals or fans of gospel. You'll find yourself trying to sing along, trying to grab a harmony and following along. And so what if you're off a note or two? This is good time music. enjoy it."
Awesome, amazing things done with the human voice!

"Acapella is a new phenomenon for me. I had not known it existed, but I borrowed this CD from the library and had it memorized before I returned it. I have a low alto voice, but still enjoyed learning the different parts. The CD is nicely done, with the different parts on different tracks. My son (16, in High School Choir) and I enjoyed turning up the various tracks to isolate single voices to learn the different parts. "How'd they do that?", we kept wondering. "Did they really make all those noises with their mouths and body parts?" I think they did. I was especially pleased to learn that the music appealed to him, too. It was one of the few I have that he doesn't ask to turn off when he gets in the car.I don't have all of the Acappella CDs but I highly recommend this one for beginners. I also have the "greatest hits" which I also enjoy very much.I think this music would be a hit to try to re-do at church - something that would appeal to the young folks without driving the elder ones mad - and something all may enjoy! I would love to have Acappella come visit our church - or help us with a Habitat for Humanity benefit some day.Awesome, I say!"
