The Wades have been hailed as the UK s premier R&B gospel group by terrestrial TV and a number of mainstream magazines. This veteran family of gospel singers have, of course, been compared with their US counterparts the Winans. After 15 years in the business they have just launched their own record label, and after seeing the Family Thing album successfully launched now weigh in with a shot at the mainstream R&B market. This single is a really good remix with a fluid garage groove and a lyric that celebrates the Wades family togetherness, both spiritual and natural, and gets better with each listen.

I am terribly sad to learn of Derek Wade's death at such a young age and in the midst of what was a successful musical career. I was Derek's teacher when he was a pupil at Thomas Carlton School in Peckham and remember him as a very like able and bright young man. Please convey my condolences to his family since I have no way of contacting them directly.
