C&C Music Group Signs Heritage Crossing
Wade and Lisa's families sang regionally throughout Southeast and Northeast Texas for years. Wade's grandfather, Mordie Marcontell was a bass singer with family quartets that sang to open for the greats such as THE STATESMEN, BLACKWOOD BROTHERS, and were regulars at Stamps Baxter singing schools in Lisa's family THE BAKERS sang in revivals and concerts. When they married 20 years ago, they sang with Wade's sister as HERITAGE. As Marissa came of age and began to sing that third part of harmony - the group evolved into HERITAGE CROSSING. They sing "Family Style Gospel... With The Father's Touch".
Among the family there are 3 keyboard players, 4 guitarist, 4 bassist, mandolin players, dobro players, organists, drummers, and Zackery is a powerful harmonica player as well.
They have been described as sounding like the Hinsons with harmony, The McGruders' with their energy, and the Crabb family with their versatility. They are truly one of a kind!
Their heart is to minister to people in multiple venues through word and song. Whether a revival or a concert, they stick to strong lyrical styling with tight harmony that only comes from a family
