GOODMAN REVIVAL - Songs In The Key Of Happy
Tanya Goodman Sykes, Michael Sykes and Johnny Minick, each of whom are seasoned Christian music veterans, have joined together to perform and record as the newly formed trio Goodman Revival. This group has captured the musical styles and heritage that have endeared them to countless people around the world. Their first recordings are a CD and a DVD, each entitled "Songs In The Key Of Happy."
"This music has become the fabric of our lives," describes Goodman Sykes. "The legacy of my family has contributed to each of us. They were our mentors. They taught us to not do what everyone else does ... but to be true to what you are. So we chose the songs we loved and put our fingerprints on them. If we can honor our roots and sing with the same spirit that inspired us, we will feel accomplished."
After singing with her family, including her father, Rusty Goodman, as a teenager, Tanya performed solo concerts and toured with Michael whom she had met and married while traveling. Amidst becoming a mother to two daughters, she found time to be a member of the trio Heirloom, record a Grammy Award-winning album of lullabies for children and become a featured soloist in Nashville's Christ Church Choir.
Before playing piano on the road with The Goodmans, Michael toured with many artists including the Hemphills and Ponder, Sykes & Wright. He then began working as a producer where he blossomed, shaping the recordings and careers of artists including the Gaither Vocal Band, The Martins and The Oak Ridge Boys, among others.
On the road since the age of 17, Minick performed with The Happy Goodman Family in the mid-‘70s as a piano player before starting his own family group. In 1996, he rejoined The Goodmans, forming a trio with Howard and Vestal Goodman. The three of them toured together for five years, recorded several projects and appeared regularly on the Gaither Homecoming events.
The connection of these three artists resulted in their debut recording, "Songs In The Key Of Happy," along with the debut of a companion live performance video of the same name, hosted by Bill Gaither. Join Goodman Revival as they sing "Songs In The Key Of Happy."
