We the Kingdom
Contemporary Christian music collective We the Kingdom brings together multiple generations of a family that includes producers, songwriters, and backing performers. Members had already recorded with the likes of Chris Tomlin, Needtobreathe, and Rend Collective before releasing their debut EP, Live at the Wheelhouse, in 2019. It showcased the project's blend of worship, country, pop, and rock music.
Formed in Georgia and based out of Nashville, We the Kingdom's founding members included Ed Cash (Chris Tomlin, Needtobreathe), Martin Cash (Bethel Music, Passion), Scott Cash (Chris Tomlin, We Are Messengers), Franni Rae Cash (Amy Grant, Rend Collective), and Andrew Bergthold (Chris Tomlin, for KING & COUNTRY). After signing with Sparrow Records, they issued the single "Holy Water" in mid-2019. It eventually hit number two on the Billboard Hot Christian Songs chart. In the meantime, We the Kingdom embarked on a tour in support of We Are Messengers.
The group's first EP, Live at the Wheelhouse, followed in October 2019 and reached the Top Three of Billboard's Top Christian Albums chart. A collaboration with Chris Tomlin, "Christmas Day," reached the Christian Top 20 that December. Their second EP, Live Acoustic Sessions, appeared in March 2020, and We the Kingdom had another Christian Top 20 hit with "God So Loved" later in the year.(Marcy Donelson, AMG)
