Kellie and Kristen Fuselier are twin sisters with a singular purpose – to see the glory of God both exalted and delighted in by people from every nation. “Our chief aim is to equip the church with songs dripping with scripture that not only inform our theology, but cause our hearts and voices to soar,” says Kellie, the vocal lead of the duo. Nashville, Tennessee, is where both live, work, and serve the local church body. “We are blessed to be surrounded by a church that loves to sing. And we have found that what best unites every generation, both men and women, the expressive and reserved alike, is when we sing songs that rehearse and celebrate the gospel of Jesus Christ,” adds Kristen, who leads from piano or guitar.
Music has been a constant for the girls throughout their lives, Kellie singing from the time she was just three years old and Kristen picking up her first instrument at age eight. The pair have ministered through music in some capacity for more than ten years. They each felt God whisper the call as teenagers. “Our task has been to serve here, locally, in our church and our community,” explains Kellie. “But this is a new season, one we feel the Lord has been preparing us for over the last decade.”
While being rooted and grounded in the local church is of utmost importance to the sisters, the time to reach out to the universal church has come. “We have a message worth proclaiming about a Savior who loves the world. We long to see the whole church united in song and are heeding the call to go and tell,” explains Kristen. “Jesus tells us through the gospel of John that the Father is seeking those who worship him in spirit and in truth and that we are to love him with everything we are, with passion!” adds Kellie. “There are so many churches filled with people who have lost the passion of their first love, and so by the grace of God and the power of his spirit, we long to be part of a great awakening where hearts are rekindled because the real Jesus is made much of.”
“Jesus came so that we could have life and have it to the fullest. That doesn’t mean we are without struggle or heartache,” explains Kristen, “But it does mean that as long as we prize him and trust him above all else, our joy – our freedom—his love—his goodness, can never be taken away because he gives without measure. We simply receive.” In January 2016, the team released their first EP entitled We Receive which hit #43 on the Christian & Gospel iTunes chart during its debut weekend. We Receive was recorded by up and coming producer Sean Hill (Uphill Studios, Dacula, GA). It is a compilation that speaks of the glories of Jesus and the joy found in drawing near to him.
“The Bible says two things will last. The blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony. Because of His blood, we have a testimony. And so we sing and we write today about that which will last for eternity. Our hope in worship is that it is always less of us and more of Him,” adds Kellie. “And we will proclaim this until the whole world knows that he is the greater Adam, the perfect priest, the spotless lamb, the pursuing shepherd, the loving father, the mighty King.”
