The group of brothers was known as the “A” Boys when they were very young. As they grew older, they called themselves, A-Boyz. Recently, in lieu of their maturity of age, the group has changed the name to A-7. The “A” is acknowledgement of their unique names, which all begin with the letter “A.” The “7” represents maturity. In addition, there are six members in the group. The “7” acknowledges the presence of the Lord in all that they do.
The group is currently working on their latest CD due to be released at the beginning of the summer of 2004. The prerelease is currently available.
