Showcase: Brothers in Christ Biography – AKA BNC

After singing with various gospel artists, we decided in 2014 to start Brothers In Christ. The group members at that time were Rod Emery, Timmy Ward, Emmanuel Shuttes, Danny Harris, Joshua Jarrett, and Billy White Jr. During our first year of singing we did our first EP with the help of Julius Cowans of the world-renown Salem Harmonizers of Olive Branch, MS. From there the platform was set for us to begin traveling throughout the states singing the gospel. Unfortunately, there were members who decided to leave the group, but God blessed us to gain new members that shared our vision. Their names are Cameron Pankey, Mike Jones, Sr., Demond Nesbit, and Maurice Emery. In 2016 we embarked on a new adventure and recorded another single entitled “Thank You” with En-Tune Entertainment owned and operated by our brother, Rev. Andrew Collins. With his help, Collins took our vision far beyond what we expected.
