Take 6

Take 6

Male Gospel Sextet from Nashville, TN.

Members: Joey Kibble, Alvin Chea, Claude McKnight, Mark Kibble, David Thomas, Khristian Dentley
Former Members: Cedric Dent, Mervyn Warren

Back in 1980, Claude McKnight formed an a cappella quartet, The Gentlemen's Estate Quartet, at Oakwood College in Huntsville, Alabama, where he was a freshman. He auditioned fellow students for the hobby group. The Gentlemen were rehearsing in a campus bathroom, getting ready for a performance, when Mark Kibble walked by and heard them singing. He joined the harmonizing, adding a fifth part, and ended up singing with them onstage that very night. Mark later invited Mervyn Warren to join the group, and the sound of Take 6 was born. Although the sonic structure was now firmly in place, the name was not; the group performed under the moniker "Alliance."

The group performed in local churches and on campus over the next years, with members changing due to college's inevitable comings and goings. In 1985, the lower half of the group (bass, baritone, and second tenor) left upon graduating. At that time, Alvin Chea, Cedric Dent, and David Thomas joined.

Take 6 : A Take 6 Christmas : Mixed 5-8 Parts : Sheet Music Collection

Take 6 : A Take 6 Christmas

One of the most well known A Cappella groups of today, Take 6 continues to amaze us with their beautiful and unique arrangements. 'A Take 6 Christmas' is an exciting medley of classic Christmas carols, including "Silent Night," "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," "Sweet Little Jesus Boy," and "O Come, All Ye Faithful," as recorded on the He Is Christmas album. In 'A Quiet Place,' the guys take this subtle hymn and turn into a triumphant, yet soothing, gem with lush harmonies and lots of heart.

Songlist: A Take 6 Christmas (A Medley), Hark! The Herald Angels Sing (medley), Sweet Little Jesus Boy (medley), O Come, All Ye Faithful (medley)
