Francis James Ralls Features Members of Grammy Group Take 6 on New Christmas A Cappella Single

Audrey Logan

Ponder Dust Records recently released a new single, "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," which is currently being played on Christian radio across the country, with radio promotion by Chris Hauser of Hauser Promotions. The holiday single is a collaboration initiated by producer/artist Francis James Ralls, featuring Aubrey Logan with Khristian Dentley and Alvin Chea of the multi-Grammy winning Gospel Hall of Fame group Take 6.

The music video was produced by FifGen Films, who's credits range from Pentatonix to John Legend.

"I enjoy collaboration, especially when the collaboration involves unusual pairings," said Ralls. "With this project I reached out to multiple artists, each with a different sound, story, and audience, bringing them together to create something unexpected and entirely new. I'm very grateful to have had this amazing opportunity to work with Aubrey Logan, and Take 6's Khristian Dentley and Alvin Chea, three people for whom I have great admiration and respect."

"Francis is the person seeing the new horizon, the new frontier, and he's going after it," said Chea. "I believe he's truly a gifted producer. I've seen him in many different genres, working with strings,  contemporary Christian music, or the a cappella Ben Bram kind of thing. Anything he puts his hands to, he's knocking it out of the park. He's a producer with a bullet behind his name, he's heading up."

"Francis is a genius to work with. He's inspiring," adds Aubrey Logan. "He's a killer composer. What I like about working with Francis is what he puts on paper really comes to light in your mind. It's very tough stuff, but when you read it you can see exactly where he's going and it feels like you are following a thought. It's really meaningful."
