Louisiana is known for its southern hospitality, historical charm, and mystic energy, but also harbors yet another natural phenomenon; THE SHOWERS. When they use the word “family” in their moniker, they are using it in its most, literal sense. THE SHOWERS comprised of a group of 10 siblings (six sisters Regina, Angela, Tiffany, Ciara, Tabitha, and Melody and the four brothers- Bobby, Timothy, Titus, and Thaddeus, who are determined to share their ministry with the rest of the world. Growing up with a wise pastor for a father and a missionary for a mother,“our lives were Christ-centered, so spreading the word of God through song is not only what we want to do, it’s what we were born to do,” says member Titus.
After thirteen years of singing everywhere from concert stages, porches, in backyards and at every church function imaginable, THE SHOWERS were led to take a leap of faith and embark upon a professional music ministry that would allow them to minister to audiences worldwide with the release of their first music CD, HEAR MY PRAYER on Aquila and Priscilla Records.
According to elder sibling Bobby who penned or arranged most of the songs on the project, the core of their message was inspired by Psalms: 39. “The bible tells us that David couldn’t refrain from speaking, and he asked the lord to make him to know his end and measure of his days. We- who are like David understand that we can’t refrain from singing His praises and realize that the gifts embedded in us will not allow us to hold our peace. Each song on our new CD ministers a unique message and each message becomes a catalyst for someone wanting to know more about Christ, and then our efforts are not in vain.”
“This project and our purpose for doing this project has been a lofty yet worthwhile experience. We couldn’t do this alone. We needed each other and moreover God’s love and mercy to guide us. This isn’t work, it’s a message and we won’t stop until the world has heard”says Regina.
