The Singing Contractors became a viral sensation after a video of them singing "How Great Thou Art" while on the job reached millions online and now they have released their first gospel album, Working on a Building, Hymns & Gospel Classics.
The unlikely pair of contractors, Aaron Gray and Josh Arnett, released their new album with Gaither Music Group on Feb 1. They caught legendary gospel singer Bill Gaither's attention when one of their social media videos performing during a home remodel garnered 1 million views in less than 24 hours.
"We literally work and if we're not on the same job, we'll meet at a house after work, drop our tools and sing a song," Arnett told The Christian Post of how they coordinate their online videos. "We really are singing contractors, and that's what we do by the day, we stop in the middle of the day or the end of the day [and sing].
With over 100 million views on YouTube alone, The Singing Contractors introduce their collections of beloved hymns and gospel classics on Working on A Building.
