Brother - Seth and Nirva (Special WGTS Video)

Artists Seth and Nirva are a married couple that has collaborated to form their own unique musical group. Each extraordinary artists in their own right, Nirva Ready—a Chicago native and daughter of Haitian immigrants—is familiar to fans around the world as a singer and dancer in TobyMac’s Diverse City Band. Seth Ready’s resume also boasts a who’s who of top Christian and gospel artists. Growing up in central Florida, the self-described “gospel music fanatic” spent hours alone in his room singing, emulating influences like Andrae Crouch, The Winans, and Fred Hammond. Such dedication to his passion afforded Seth a series of opportunities in college that ultimately landed him at the doorstep of one of urban gospel’s most groundbreaking talents, Kirk Franklin. 

They both wrote this song back in 2016 following the events that transpired in Ferguson, Missouri. This powerful song has found itself very relevant in recent weeks following the death of George Floyd and others. The song is a powerful reminder of how we are one family and body in Christ, even those we may find ourselves at odds with--that we are truly each other's brothers and sisters. And we are to live this out in every aspect of our lives.

We've received a number of requests for this special mix that we have been airing, and have decided to release it as this special video that captures the events of the past few weeks as we seek answers for reconciliation and justice.
