McCants (formerly MYM) consist of five dedicated men of God who have been singing in the tri-state area of Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey since 1991. The group was formed from a 75 voice family choir ( McCants Relation Singers of Wilmington, DE. ) that has been ministering since 1963. The Lord called them out to sing their own expression of gospel music, which has a strong contemporary edge, but yet remains true to traditional roots.
In the beginning, the members of the group were involved in various areas and genres that allowed them to create and develop in broad aspects of music. One of those groups in the early 80's was Profexion. Many of the members of profexion evolved into the the phenomenon known as the "House of Wizdom"-- A family of about 8 members in the purest forms of Hip Hop, R & B, Rap and Gouse (Gospel House.) The group was ready to release their first album under the House of Wizdom, until the only true and wise God touched them in a personal way and led them in a different direction. Ever since that time, they have used their individual talents and gifts to spread the good news of Jesus Christ to all.
Over the years, MYM has stood for many things. It first stood for the McCants Young Men because of the relationship that exists through the McCants Family in a whole; however, now that they have been born again through Christ, they can be called the Messsiah's Young Men or MYM. God has annointed the name to represent everything in the past, present and future. The Lord predestined MYM to have many examples in front of them to help them along the way. In 1997, MYM released their first album, "Fearfully and Wonderfully Made." The Album acheived very good success as a self produced project. Currently they are working on a second project. This project will unviel a tranformation that the entire group has endured over the years. With this change MYM will simply be called McCants.
McCants Live in the news.
Video here is a TV news clip of McCants while doing a live concert in Rodney Square in Wilmington, DE in 1997. Gotta love the anchor's statement "It's a little bit rapper style." Oh well, enjoy.
