Vocal Union is an all-vocal, contemporary Gospel group from Nashville, Tennessee. They began as a group of studio interns in 1995 experimenting with recording vocal arrangements of traditional gospel music. The sound they produced found a niche in many churches around the country, and the decision was made in 1998 to make Vocal Union a touring group. Since that time, Vocal Union has traveled extensively, performing for special church events, community concerts, and fundraisers. The group primarily travels throughout the United States, but has also ventured to select venues in Canada and Jamaica. Vocal Union has performed at a wide variety of venues including a performance of sacred Christmas music at Carnegie Hall in December of 2005 in Manhattan, New York, and two performances at the White House Christmas celebration in Washington, D.C. in December of 2006. The groups fan base has spread worldwide through distribution by Word Records. Fans from Iceland, Nigeria, Brazil, and many other countries all over the world have signed the groups online guest book and illustrate Vocal Unions strong international appeal.
Two Vocal Union recording projects: Once Upon A Tree and All Around Me have earned awards from the Contemporary Acappella Society of America. Once Upon A Tree was awarded the Best Religious Album of the Year in 2001 against stiff competition from the very highly acclaimed groups Take 6 and Acappella.
Vocal Unions style ranges from high-energy traditional, to tight-harmony jazz and soulful spirituals, to contemporary street corner acappella. The group tailors the set list to match the demographics of the audience so everyone from the very young to the very old will find something to enjoy during their concerts. Many of their songs feature vocal percussion and vocal bass guitar to firmly establish the rhythmic element, and the inner voicings are meticulously arranged and seriously performed to perfection. The group is blessed with some of the finest soloists in Christian music and all of them love to sing with their hearts!
