For the month of April, we take a
look at a group that first came to our attention in 2005. At that time,
we introduced you to their new CD and Video. The group is none other than
The Mighty Aires
of Wilmington, Delaware.
The 2005 CD and Video were titled
Breakthrough. Since that time we have followed this groups
elevation in the gospel music industry. So, it certainly was exciting to
learn that they were recording a LIVE video containing many new songs.
Now the group has released their
new CD and DVD titled Heaven. It is an outstanding project.
There is so much music on the new project that it had to be divided into two
DVD. The entire concert was about two (2) hours in length.
The actual recording of the project took place on July 27, 2007, at The
Cathedral of Fresh Fire, 2300 Northeast Boulevard, Wilmington, Delaware. As is
of the case with many independent projects, it was a year or more before it
actually was release.
The primary concert provided twelve (12) songs for the DVD.
In addition, there are two bonus
tracks, "Breakthrough" and "Turn It Over."
Four members of the group are given the opportunity to sing lead. Bonita
"Neet" Finney sings lead on Good To Me. She shares lead duties with
Chuck Finney on Free. And Mrs. Rosetta "Mom" Finney sings lead on Supreme
Sacrifice and Blessings Keep Coming.
"Pop" Finney sings lead on Give Me A Heart, "Grateful, and Testimony. While Chuck Finney sings lead on He
Kept Me, Heaven,
Thank You Lord and Still Here. Curtis
Clack, one of the guitar player, steps up and shares lead duties with other
members of the group during "The Cross Medley."
Once again, The Mighty Aires
put a lot of energy into every song. As you view this video, It is easy to feel that you are a part of the audience.
The location for the recording was a good choice. The stage was large and
the group used every portion of the stage. And, the backdrop to the stage
does not interfere with the viewer focusing on the group.
The quality of the sound is good. The camera shots
of the stage are great. There are great
close-ups of the members of the group. There are only shadow shots of the
audience. Overall, however, the lighting is good throughout the video.
appears that the group was really enjoying ministering in song. Therefore, the
energy they bring to the stage will have you focusing on the group and not the
no interviews on this video.
You get almost 120
minutes of nothing but pure, refreshing, traditional quartet gospel singing.
With the new DVD,
confirm our belief that the group is ready for primetime. You will
certainly want to have this video in your collection. We give
"Heaven" by The Mighty Aires a solid 9 out of 10. To
