The Singing Contractors Build A Christmas To Remember

INSTANT FAME

When Aaron and Josh decided to post a video of themselves singing “How Great Thou Art” on Youtube in 2015, the furthest thing from their minds was a singing career.  “There was no thought of turning it into something,” Josh says.  The video went “viral,” however, eliciting sixty thousand views by the next day, and eventually, sixty million.   Calls began to come in from media outlets, the governor’s mansion, conventions, lumber yards, and golf clubs, etc., all wanting to hear more of the builders who sing.  Someone on social media called them “The Singing Contractors,” and the name stuck.  Since that first video, the duo has received wide acclaim,  winning people over with their “everyday Joe” humor and hitting number 1 on Billboard’s music video charts across all genres.  The duo also took the number one spots on Nielsen SoundScan Southern Gospel Album and Christian Music Video charts, and wond Favorite New Artist at the 2019 Singing News Fan Awards.  

THE GOAL 

Though both Aaron and Josh love to sing, there’s much more to their music career than personal enjoyment.  Their desire to share their faith in Jesus Christ and point people to Him is what makes the time and effort worthwhile. Aaron explains his reason for taking on this second career: “To see someone saved, reach people who are lost, encourage them, and share the good news.” He adds that people often tell them not to stop doing what they’re doing, and realizes that they’re reaching people with more than beautiful music, but a message of hope and truth.  Josh says that his motivation is to give hope in this world.  “We always want to lift up Jesus.”  He recounts the time that a woman wrote  on their Facebook page that she was ready to commit suicide and listened to their songs.  “She said God spoke to her.”  They kept in contact with her for months and rejoiced as the Lord restored her.   

NEW CHRISTMAS CD 

Building a Christmas to Remember includes Christmas classics such as “Winter Wonderland,” “Here Comes Santa Claus,” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”  The guys also have some fun on the album with their rendition of “The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late), and actually work some construcio tools into the musical arrangement.  Most importantly, the pair use their God-given talents to remind us why we celebrate Christmas in the first place with the beloved hymns “Silent Night,” “Joy to the World,” and the modern, hugely popular song “Mary, Did You Know?”
