Gospel artists The Wardlaw Brothers now have more reasons to celebrate the release of their latest album, Stand There, after it snags the No. 1 spot on Billboard's Top Gospel Albums chart. The five harmonizing Wardlaw siblings from Lyons, Ga., have over the past few years worked to give the Gospel Quartet genre a contemporary sound, along with what they call, "a fashionable swag."

Following up the huge success of their 2013 album release, God's Been There, The Wardlaw Brothers recently released their highly anticipated album, Stand There, during some of their most challenging times. However, in the midst of it all, the group says faith and perseverance have manifested through family restoration, their first Billboard No. 1 album, and songs like "God Has Kept Me."

The music video for the group's current Top 30 Gospel Radio single, "God Has Kept Me," is directed by film-maker Aaron Williams and this month premiered and was added to rotation on BET HER and Aspire TV. The emotionally gripping video chronicles the real-life fight for freedom, trial and court case of their brother Tony, and the challenges endured by the entire Wardlaw family throughout the 2-year ordeal.

"'God Has Kept Me' is my personal testimony that I hope will inspire and encourage anyone going through a crisis," Tony explains. "I've been through an overwhelming storm that took me away from my family and I know that only God was the one who removed the shackles, opened the cell door and healed when all hope seemed to be gone," he continues. "My brothers and I have chosen to tell our story in this video and through it send a message of reassurance that God will keep his promises and will keep you!"
