New Breed is a multiple Grammy Award-winning Christian music group, headed by an artist named Israel Houghton. They are responsible for literally dozens of chart-topping singles over the last 15 years.
The concept of a "new breed" refers to a multicultural, non-stereotypical Christian mentality. There is nothing traditional about this group. Israel and New Breed have literally changed the landscape of Christian music, bridging the gap between contemporary Christian music (CCM) and Black Gospel music. Israel and New Breed are one of the world's most recognized Christian groups.
They consist of a very multicultural group of people that are in their 20's-40's that travel around the world. They have a heart for serving others and are often helping to promote non-profit organizations such as Charity Water, World Vision, etc.
Their music is very, very lively, cutting edge, pop/rock style with a Gospel twist.
Here are a few examples of them live:
