The unique Men of Grace group performs everything from blues to jazz to gospel with emphasis on vocal harmony. Its repertoire includes standards and original music with arrangements influenced by many musical genres. The award winning eight member group consists of men who are currently in or have completed the one year rehabilitation program of Grace Centers of Hope. It was formed in 1999 as a musical ministry of Grace Gospel Fellowship in Pontiac, Michigan. Since then, The Men of Grace has recorded seven CDs and has toured the country performing for U.S. Presidents, Fortune 500 companies, professional sports teams, churches and synagogues of every size and denomination and nearly every Cracker Barrel east of the Mississippi.
