HUNTSVILLE, Ala (WAAY)-Singing group and Huntsvilles own Committed was in town spreading some Christmas cheer. Committed performed two Christmas concerts at the Rock Family worship center in Huntsville.

The a capella group met at Oakwood University and in 2010 won a television singing contest. After that they signed a record deal and recorded two albums.

Group member Robbie Pressley says its been a fun ride getting to sing professionally around the world. "Its been a great experience, so far. We met in college and we never thought we would be doing this full time and we had a platform to push us above and beyond. And we've been able to go across the nation and the world" Pressley said.

Member Tommy Gervais says as Seventh Day Adventist christian, the group always put God first in their music. "I feel like this is a great way to spread His love and the word through us. We can sing and tour and make CD'S but getting to see the people, they don't see God until they meet us" Gervais said.

Robbie Pressley agrees. "Its very important, that's our ultimate goal because we are committed to our music and committed to each other and committed to God. And its most important for us to minister to the masses".

Committed's musical influences include: Boys to Men and a capella group Take 6 to name a few. The day after Christmas Committed goes on tour in London, England.
