The Acappella Company’s roots in Southern Gospel are deep. Such songs as “When I Wake Up To Sleep No More” and “I’ll Have A New Life” provided a traditional foundation for Acappella. But as Acappella explored musical styles and expanded its repertoire to include more contemporary sounds, the group moved away from a Southern Gospel focus. Thus, The Vocal Union was formed.
The Vocal Union was originally comprised of members of the studio at The Acappella Company, including producers, engineers, and interns. The group’s success has witnessed a host of talent joining this ministry to continue the legacy of The Vocal Union sound.
The driving force behind the group has been Gary Miller – song writer, recording engineer, producer, and an amazing bass singer. During his tenure, Miller had led The Vocal Union to new heights including international appearances, top honors in the Contemporary a cappella Recording Awards, and a concert at Carnegie Hall. Miller had also contributed songs to other groups in his ministry, including Acappella, AVB, Series Albums, and the Praise & Harmony projects. On March 12, 2011 Gary Miller went to sing with the angels above.
