Taking a cue from legendary family groups, both the faith-based (Clark Sisters) and the pop-centric (Jackson 5), Houston, Texas-based gospel quartet the Walls Group specialize in life affirming contemporary gospel. Raised in a musical family, Darrel, Rhea, Paco, and Ahjah Walls (four of eight siblings) formed the group in 2009. The quartet debuted in 2012 with an independently released self-titled album that registered on the Billboard gospel chart. Grammy Award-winning vocalist/producer Kirk Franklin signed the group to his own Fo Yo Soul Entertainment company in 2012. The RCA-affiliated label is where there the singers went on to release Fast Forward in 2014 and The Other Side in 2017. The former topped the gospel chart.
