Haase, Gaither and Wayne Haun poured through Bill and Gloria Gaither’s catalog of over 700 popular songs and decided to reimagine several standards. Ernie Haase + Signature Sound’s rendition of “Because He Lives” recently landed on Spotify’s New Music Friday Christian playlist while The Christian Post exclusively premiered the group’s “Then Came the Morning” video leading up to Easter.
Something Beautiful also includes collaborations with both Gospel Music Hall of Fame members, who have collectively garnered eight GRAMMY® Awards and 40 Gospel Music Association (GMA) DOVE Awards, including the title “Songwriter of the Year” eight times. Bill Gaither joins Ernie Haase + Signature Sound on “It’s Beginning to Rain” while Gloria Gaither lends her voice to the quartet’s medley of Gaither classics.
April 2020 marks 30 years since Haase first met Bill and Gloria Gaither during his debut performance with the legendary quartet The Cathedrals at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center in Nashville. Haase remembers, “Gloria took my hand before I went on stage and prayed for me asking God to give me His peace. I was a nervous 25-year-old kid, and that one act stabilized me that night and has stayed with me all these years later. They have always been there for me and have proven time and time again that they are more about the relationship than making careers.”
Ernie Haase + Signature Sound has long been a part of the Gaither HOMECOMING family of artists appearing on the brand’s worldwide tours to such venues as Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, The Sydney Opera House and the Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The group has appeared with Bill and Gloria on their award-winning and top-selling recordings, including the Gaither Gospel Series, of which 133 products have been certified gold, platinum or multi-platinum. Something Beautiful follows Ernie Haase + Signature Sound’s latest Gaither Music Group project, A Jazzy Little Christmas, ranked by the Los Angeles Times as one of the “Best Christmas Albums of 2019” and featured on Fox & Friends and Huckabee.TV.
