For over a decade, THE LEVITES have been making waves in the music industry both nationally and internationally! They've pushed the boundaries of contemporary gospel music to the max by collaborating and sharing stages with many of today's mainstream artists. Their musical influences are many, but perhaps their style can best be described as a fusion of Jazz, Soul, Gospel, Contemporary, Hip Hop, R&B, and even Zydeco. Sounds far fetched but experiencing them live will make you a believer.
They are fresh air into today's homoplastic overproduced industry. As such, they've appeared multiple times at The House of Blues, SXSW music festival, Austin City Limits, Trinity Broadcasting Network, The Word Network, T.D. Jakes' MegaFest Conference, and more introducing people to the love of a relevant Jesus.
THE LEVITES have also collaborated with, provided background vocals, and opened concerts for award winning artists like: Ledisi, Kirk Franklin, Mercy Me, Snarky Puppy, David Crowder, Kim Burrell, Jeremy Camp, Marvin Sapp, Jonathan Nelson, and so many others.
Collectively they have earned: B.A. in Biblical Studies and Christian Ministry, B.A. in Education with a certification in Special Ed (K-12), Bachelor of Business Administration in Management, B.A. in Multidisciplinary Studies with Biology and Psychology concentrations, B.A. in African American Studies, B.A. in Music Performance, B.S. in Sound Recording Technology with a minor in Jazz Studies, and decades more of experience.
THE LEVITES are proud sponsors and representatives of: Compassion International, World Vision, St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, InterVarsity, and Urbana Missions.
