Grammy-nominated vocal group Avalon on Wednesday published a surprise new video to their official website and social media platforms, hinting the beginning of "the next chapter" in the group's acclaimed career.
In the short video, the group simply announces, "Hi! We're Avalon," revealing the addition of two new members Dani Rocca, and the return of Jody McBrayer, absent from the group for twelve years.
"Greg and I are thrilled to welcome back our friend and brother, Jody McBrayer," shares Janna Long. "I know our friends will be thrilled to see Jody with Avalon again just as much as we're ecstatic to share the platform with him."
McBrayer shares in a comment, that, "Who would have ever imagined that, after nearly twelve years, I would be part of Avalon again? I'm always surprised at how God works and so extremely happy and grateful for this new season with them."
Speaking about the addition of Rocca, Greg Long says that after the group heard her sing for the first time, his wife and fellow band member Janna Long looked at him and said, "I love this girl's voice." Very soon after, he says, they fell in love with the person who is Rocca, "I know our friends will love her, too."
Following the announcement of the next chapter in the group's career, Avalon says they are ready to record new music together, with more details about the upcoming project set to be released at a later date.
Currently, the foursome is set to appear on "The Greatest Hits Live Tour" this winter, alongside such storied artists as Newsong, Point of Grace, Nicole C. Mullen, Bob Carlisle, and Rebecca St. James.
