“Gospel music is something we enjoy, with me being a music major in college and both of us participating in the national GMWA [Gospel Music Workshop of America] workshops in the past. We are members of the local Houston and Texas chapter of the GMWA. Although we aren’t active anymore, we still keep up with the national GMWA conference every year and support the activities of the Houston and Texas chapter. We support the musicians, songwriters and singers as they release new music.”
