Since his arrival, he has steadily bridged the gap between generations of Gospel fans. His follow-up in 1999, Live And Alive, further catapulted him front and center as his composition “I Just Want To Be Right” became a Gospel anthem. The same year, Keith released his first Christmas project, Our Gift To You, which showcased a memorable version of the timeless favorite “12 Days Of Christmas.” He then went on to release five additional projects with World-Wide/Black Smoke Records, all of which charted on Billboard’s Gospel charts, and produced chart-topping singles. In 2005, he signed with Verity Records, releasing New Season, which reached #4 on the Billboard charts. The album’s beautiful single, “Let Go, Let God,” won BMI’s Most Played Song Of The Year Award in 2005.
