Out of Eden was an American Gospel music group that enjoyed over ten years of success until they finally called it quits in 2006. In that time, they produced a number of albums and were awarded “Urban Album of the Year” and “Urban Song of the Year” at the Dove Awards of 2003.
Started by three sisters (Danielle Kimmey, Lisa Kimmey and Andrea Kimmey-Baca) all born in Richmond, Virginia, they were heavily influenced by their mother who played classical music and would often let them sing back-up at their performances. From there it wasn’t long before they were discovered by Toby McKeehan and their careers really took off.
Reaching mainstream status, it was clear sailing from there with a steady flow of albums including their most famous one “This Is Your Life.” However, on June 2006, the group finally announced their intentions to disband after the release of their greatest hits album and that was the end of Out of Eden.
Even six years later, the albums continue to sell and it seems like their popularity has only gotten richer with age. Television services like www.CableTelevision.net, have hundreds of music channels and Out of Eden has been known to make the rounds from time to time proving that while they might be gone, they are far from forgotten.
