NI gospel group to record for US label

The Crossroads Entertainment & Marketing agency of Arden, North Carolina, has just signed the Northern Ireland gospel trio Revelation (left) to its record label, Pinnacle Records. This is the first time in decades that any major Southern Gospel record company has signed a group from outside North America.

The group was founded in the last five years, after David Strange and Thomas McCalmont met Andrew Calderwood. Jeff Collins of the agency says: 'It is with much excitement that Crossroads has the opportunity to present Revelation to the US market.' Revelation begin work on their first Crossroads project on 2 August 2010 at the Crossroads Studios in Arden, NC.
