Take 6 has forged a reputation as one of the most innovative and successful vocal groups performing today, earning them wide admiration in the music industry. The group has collaborated with an impressive list of artists including Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Don Henley, Queen Latifah, and James Taylor, and has added tracks to numerous film soundtracks, including Spike Lee’s “Do the Right Thing” and David Mamet’s “Glengarry Glen Ross.” The group has consistently found ways to blend new influences and techniques with their own music, resulting in a musical experience that defies categorization. Since its formation in 1980, this innovative a cappella sextet has racked up millions in album sales, received seven Grammys and scores of other awards for their albums, which bass singer Alvin Chea describes as “uplifting…a positive in a world of negativity.”

But while Take 6, comprised of Chea, Claude McKnight, Mark Kibble, Joey Kibble, Mervyn Warren, Cedric Dent, and David Thomas, has evolved and grown throughout the years, their message remains the same. “We don’t want people to forget the roots of where the best ideas come from, where kindness comes from,” says Mark Kibble. “It’s all about expression and reaching people where they are,” says McKnight. “We present the message in an attractive package, and hopefully the folks will leave the show humming a tune.”
