After years of struggle for success in the music industry, Lisa Kimmey, Andrea Kimmey-Baca and Danielle Kimmey of the group Out Of Eden finally reached the peak of their career in 2003 when their fourth album, entitled “This Is Your Life”, received the Dove Award for Urban Album of the Year. Out Of Eden shared the honor that year with the group Souljahz and its album “The Fault Is History”, but it didn’t make the victory less sweet.
The Kimmey sisters had been pushing for mainstream success since their first album, entitled “Lovin’ The Day”, released in 1994. That album was an instant hit on the contemporary Christian charts, but pop success eluded the group. The release of their acclaimed third album “No Turning Back” in 1999 set the stage for their award-winning fourth album. “This Is Your Life” finally gave the sisters a hint of pop stardom, as it peaked on the U.S. Top 200 Albums chart at 178 in 2002. The next year, Out Of Eden was honored at the Dove Awards for their success.
The group recorded two more albums and released an greatest hits compilation before disbanding in 2006, leaving behind a legacy of soulful music that reached a broad audience.
