GRAMMY-nominated acapella group Kings Return has unveiled their first full-length holiday album entitled ‘We Four Kings’. The Dallas-based quartet effortlessly blurs genre lines with their unique fusion of gospel, jazz, R&B and classical music and one-of-a-kind arrangements of holiday favorites including “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” “Mary, Did You Know” and more. Each self-produced tune is laced with expansive harmonies that flex their mesmerizing vocal chemistry and range.

“We don’t use any instruments, and it can feel very vulnerable to perform on stage alone, especially as Black men — with all the stigma that entails,” says Gabe Kunda. “When we come together to do this vulnerable thing called a cappella, it strengthens our bonds. It makes us tighter as a unit and as human beings. We want to be examples for other men like us.”
