Paid In Full began their professional ministry while still in high school, singing in area revivals and camp meetings. Soon they were singing three nights a week all over the South, and were appearing in concert with some of Gospel music’s finest artists, including The Gaither Vocal Band, The Happy Goodmans, The Martins, The Cathedrals, and the legendary Jake Hess. Jake first heard them in 1996, and immediately took Paid In Full under his musical wing, bringing them to his home church in Georgia for a concert, and introducing them to industry leaders and many of today’s top Gospel musicians. Soon they were appearing in Gaither Homecoming Concerts all over the country as well as in such prestigious showcases as “Howard and Vestal Goodman and Friends” and “The Grand Ole Gospel Reunion.” They were performing in venues which are usually reserved for Gospel artists with much more experience and a longer list of credentials than such a young group can claim.

As musical ambassadors since 1991, Paid In Full has been privileged to sing in churches with diverse denominational identities and has been widely accepted by each congregation. Celebrating what all Christians have in common, Paid In Full has worked to unify the body of Christ. As Southern Baptists, Paid In Full has been equally accepted by their own denomination. They have appeared at numerous LifeWay events and conventions as well as evangelism and pastors’ conferences across the country. They have also sung in some of the nation’s largest Baptist churches, including Bellevue Baptist Church in Cordova, Tennessee, and First Baptist Church in Jackson, Mississippi.

Utilizing the talents of renowned Nashville producers Woody Wright and Michael Sykes, Paid In Full has released six major recordings, including four original Gospel projects, a Christmas collection, and an acoustic recording of hymns and favorites. Some of the industry’s finest song writers have contributed their best original tunes to the group, helping Paid In Full produce over 10 Top 80 hit songs, as well as rave reviews from Gospel Music peers, press, and fans from all over the United States.

Now, more than ever, Paid In Full is focused on presenting the Gospel of Christ through music. On television, in large metropolitan churches, or in small country churches, the mission is the same: share what Jesus Christ has done in their lives, and what he can do in the lives of every human being who will allow it. This is the message Paid In Full wants to deliver in their concerts and recorded music.
