Life for the Willis family has never been what one might call normal. They have chosen to walk the path less traveled in all areas of life and their newest studio album release, "Heaven," is the musical culmination of their journey thus far.
Written, performed, engineered and produced by various members
of the 14 person family, listeners will hear a top level record full of meaningful songs, striking harmonies, driving rhythms and soaring anthems.
They proudly show their deep, colorful roots with the integration of ethnic instrumentation, creating a unique, exciting sound in contemporary circles. "We've been waiting a long time to release this music," Jessica, the eldest at 23, explains, "but we always knew we were headed for this sound that would combine all of our musical loves into a new sort of genre in popular music."
Their latest CD is not the only exciting thing on the horizon for The Willis Clan. They broke out in a big way at the end of 2013 when they were named the TODAY show's Sound of Music Family. This appearance led to an initial audition on the 9th season of America's Got Talent with their cover of "A Few Of My Favorite Things" that has now garnered over 6 million views on YouTube. The video got the attention of TLC executives and a reality show centered on the family was fast-tracked and went into production the end of 2014. The first season of the show premiered on May 5, 2015.
