The Greenes started their singing career in 1979. Siblings Tim, Kim, Tony and father Everette Greene wowed crowds from the beginning. Early chart hits included “Gloryland”, “It Sure Sounds Like Angels To Me”, “Miracle In Me”, “Restless Hearts”, “Ride On The Clouds” and “When He Sees Me”.
But it was 1989, at the close of the decade, when the Greenes would garner their first #1 song and create a signature song for the group; “When I Knelt, The Blood Fell”. Penned by Tim Greene, the song would ultimately spend three months at #1 between November 1989 and January 1990.
Everett Greene and his three youngest children (Tim, Kim and Tony) started singing in 1979, as the Greenes. The young siblings would score their first top ten song by 1982 and then their first top five hit in 1985.
It was the release of the 1987 album, Family Praise and the song, “Miracle In Me” that allowed the Greenes to become household names among the larger Southern Gospel music audience.
Penned by Phil Cross and Carolyn Cross, “Miracle In Me” remains one of the Greenes most popular songs.
