Album Notes
1aChord. There's only 1 way to describe these young ladies form the heart of the Motor City, and that is soulful.The day these ladies meet they knew that they would embark on an everlasting relationship.
1aChord is a Gospel singing Duo which consists of Nichelle"Nikki" Tillman and Teyonee Bell.These young ladies had their start singing in the Gospel choir of the True Faith Baptist Church at the early age of 5, under the direct leadership of some of the greatest musicians the city had to offer.Both ladies ventured into Gospel plays.
Teyonee gets her start with the play "What's Going on", and has performed on such albulms as God's Little Soldier.Teyonee also attended Mattie Moss Clark Conservatory under the teachings of Dorinda Clark and Karen Clark Sheard. She just recently had the privilege of becoming1 of the top finalists for the Channel 4" Give Me The Mike" contest.
Both ladies sang with the Oscar Hayes/Abundant Life Fellowship Chorale,Nikki was featured on all albulms as 1 of the soloist.After feeling the need to move on, the Gospel duo decided to join Michael Mindingall and the Communion Chorale. That encounter would short be lived as well, for God defintely had more in store!!!
Nikki Tillman gets her start professionly in the theater as well. She has toured with such plays as God's Trombone at the age of 15. She continued in theater touring with "God Dont Like Ugly",Mamma I Wanna Sing", and "The DEvil Made Me Do It". She has worked with such Gospel srtists as Vanessa Bell Armstrong,Dottie Peoples, and Daniel Winans. Nikki rounded out her training in other areas, but always keeping God 1st. She was accepted into the Interlochen Performing Arts Schools at the age of 15 on a scholarship, where she majored in performing arts, dance, voice, and drama.
1aChord brings you their #1 debut single"What a Friend". This song is meant to uplift you,bless you, and to reach the hearts of a new generation with an old Hymn of the Church. This song was written by the conquring duo themselves.

We leave you with this verse, which is our personal testimony-Psalms 108:1-4, Our hearts are steadfast, oh God;We will sing and make music with all our souls.Awake, harp, and lyre!! We will awaken the dawn. We will Praise you, o Lord, amoung the nations;We will sing of you amoung the peoples. For great is your Love, Higher than the heavens; your Faith reaches to the Skies. 1aChord.

I have been hearing the song on the radio. I sure hope this message gets out.
The song does my heart good each time I play the CD. I wish those girls would make another song. I love "What a Friend" and I know I would love the next CD too. Those girls are awsome.


I gave the CD 5stars because I really loved the music as well as the lyrics - th
I enjoyed the song to the utmost. I think these girls are going some place. I look to hear from them on the big time charts real soon. I pray that they do not give up and that they will work really hard to continue their good work for The Lord. Keep up the good work girls. Don't get discouraged. There are some great blessings in store for you. Just around the river bend. Hang on in there.

I would encourage everyone to listen & buy this CD, excellent sound!!!
This cd has a nice hip hop, smooth sound with inspiring lyrics. It contains a fresh sound with an urban contemporary beat. If you love Mary, Mary, you'll love 1achord. This artist will definitely go places. Try it for yourself.

Catchy sound, good singing, what teens my age like to hear.
I liked the sound of this song. It had a hip beat, good singing and would help me to refocus in bad situations to know that as young man, I have a friend in Jesus when the peer pressure of life becomes too much to handle.


I just listened to the What A Friend - It was most inspiring to me. I am so pleased with the music.

These ladies are blessed and I'm looking forward to hearing more singing from these ladies.
