Take 6 are the most awarded vocal group in history with 10 GRAMMY Awards, 10 Dove Awards, a Soul Train Award, and more. The group, Claude McKnight, Mark Kibble, Joel Kibble, Dave Thomas, Alvin Chea and Khristian Dentley, heralded by Quincy Jones as the ‘baddest vocal cats on the planet,” is the quintessential a capella group and model for vocal genius. Six virtuosic voices united in crystal clear harmony, against a backdrop of syncopated rhythms, innovative arrangements, and funky grooves that bubble into an intoxicating brew of gospel, jazz, R&B, and pop. With praise from such luminaries as Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Brian Wilson, Ella Fitzgerald and Whitney Houston, the multi-platinum selling sextet has toured across the globe, collaborated across genres, and is recognized as the pre-eminent a capella group in the world. They have shared the stage with Celine Dion, Lionel Richie, Justin Timberlake, Stevie Nicks, Ne-Yo, and more; they have captivated the audiences with their rendition of the Louis Armstrong hit, “What A Wonderful World”; and they thrilled a sold-out audience at the Songwriters Hall of Fame Awards performing with and honoring legendary singer-songwriter Ben E. King on his classic ‘Stand By Me.’ This same group can also bring the house down with their tribute to folk icon Woody Guthrie with “This Land Is Your Land.” What makes the music and the group last this long? The answers are direct and simple: faith, friendship, respect, and love of music. From their exceptional live performances to their recordings, these qualities remain at the heart of the Take 6 phenomenon.
