It’s “The Most Wonderful Time of The Year!” No, it’s not just a (debatably) true statement, but also the name of the Christmas program presented by one of the most renowned vocal groups in history. Take 6 is an a cappella sextet composed of Claude McKnight, Mark Kibble, Joel Kibble, Dave Thomas, Alvin Chea and Khristian Dentley. Since 1980, the group has received 10 Grammy Awards, 10 Dove Awards, two NAACP Image Awards, a Soul Train Award and many more accolades for its vocal renditions of gospel, soul, jazz and R&B. The group has received praise from many prominent musicians throughout its career and played shows around the world, including a performance for then-president George W. Bush at the White House. Take 6’s music often involves a spiritual bent, and this performance’s Christmas repertoire is sure to cover the classics as well as contemporary hits.
