The New Christianaires gospel group stems from the original Christianaires, an award-winning quartet that enjoyed over two decades of success. The Christianaires quartet was originally formed in the 1970s by two sets of talented singing brothers, Paul and Tyrone Porter, and their cousins, Arnold and Ronald Brown.
Before the Christianaires began their award-winning recording history, the quartet performed at churches and conventions in the south and expanded nationally. Through the 1990s and into the new millennium, the Christianaires recorded albums with Atlanta, A&M, and Marxan Records and enjoyed mass appeal.
The Christianaires' first album, Ain't No Way I Could, was released in 1990. It was only a year after their debut that the group won an Excellence Award for Contemporary Quartet of the Year. Their next album, Vision Becomes Clearer, was released in 1993 and they were nominated for a Stellar Award for Best Performance. The Christianaires recorded two albums in 1995, Thru the Storm and Reaching Out, resulting in a Vision Award and the opportunity to perform at the Vision Awards program.
During the years of their popularity, the members of the Christianaires quartet frequenlty changed but, they continued to meet the expectations of their fans. However, the changes strained the quartet and it was dismantled.
In 2010, the New Christianaires were formed under George Carter, an original member of the Christianaires. In 2011, the group signed with Full Circle Records and began recording. The New Christianaires remain true to their early roots, mixing the best of traditional gospel with a contemporary edge. Although the group's composition has changed, its soul-stirring gospel music is a mainstay that still captivates audiences and brings them joy. For Bookings 407-692-7006.
