We The Kingdom -–– comprising Brothers Ed and Scott Cash, Ed's daughter Franni, his son Martin, and lifelong friend Andrew Bergthold –– will be performing on Fox and Friends on Christmas Eve (Dec. 24). They will be singing their brand new Christmas song "Silent Night (Heavenly Peace)."
The song is featured on the band's 'A Family Christmas' EP (10.22 via Capitol Christian Music Group), which includes six festive tracks produced entirely by the group. Throughout the project, they are joined by Maverick City Music, Chris Tomlin, and Dante Bowe. Additionally, the "Silent Night" track is featured as part of the record-breaking film 'Christmas with The Chosen: The Messengers.'
The band writes, "Grab a coffee and tune in on Christmas Eve to catch us LIVE on Fox And Friends! Check your local listings."
"Silent Night (Heavenly Peace)," while it is an the age-old holiday favorite, has a newly written ruminative chorus that adds a depth of worship. The band talks about the significance of the song "I think for that song specifically, what that song does is it tells a really beautiful story. It's a narrative. It's one of the most beloved Christmas songs in history, I think. It's stunning.
We also thought, "If you are someone who believes in that narrative, what would be the natural response to that?" And to believe the narrative that the Almighty Creator would make Himself a child and come to the earth to save the earth, if you believe that, it warrants a response of adoration and worship. For us, we do believe that. So, we said, `What would it sound like to sing a response to that?' That's where the chorus of `Heavenly Peace' came from."
