About The Showers:
For contemporary gospel group the Showers, both music and faith are a family affair. A vocal group comprised of seven of ten siblings, the Showers grew up in a Christian household, and use their music to express their faith and spread the Lord’s message to others. The Showers consist of six women (Angela, Ciara, Melody, Regina, Tabitha, and Tiffany) and 1 brother lead singer (Titus), all born and raised in Hammond, Louisiana, where their father is a pastor and mother serves as a missionary. Both parents came from musical families, and music filled the house while the children were growing up, as they sang at home and during services.In 2014, the group self-released their national debut album, The Showers Family Group, which spawned two Billboard Top 25 radio single , “Better” (No. .13) and “Immediately” (No. 24) – both written and produced by acclaimed singer/songwriter Deon Kipping. In 2015, The Showers earned a Stellar Award nomination for Traditional Group/Duo of the Year.
