The Walls Group is made up of four of eight children, born to Roger and Alicia Walls. Being the children of two musicians, these kids could not escape the inevitable. Music has resounded within the walls of the Walls household for years.
Darrel McGlothen Walls is 19 years old and is the eldest member of the Walls Family Singers, formerly the Walls Kidz. At a very early age Darrel demonstrated very unique musical abilities. While at Grace Memorial C.O.G.I.C., a young girl taught him to play the tambourine at the age of 1 ½ years old. Everywhere he went he had to have a tambourine and everyone knew it. At the age of 3, a pastor friend stood him on the Remembrance table and he sang his very first solo, Somebody’s Knocking At Your Door. That was the start of something big. Darrel was a soprano until the age of 13. He started playing drums at the age of 4 and did so until he replaced them with the organ/keyboard. He is an exceptional young man and has blessed many people with his gifts all across the United States. Darrel spends most of his time writing, recording, and singing music. It is his passion for God that causes him to be an exceptional individual. He aspires to someday be a great producer.
Rhea Walls is 15 years old and is the second oldest of the group. Rhea is very shy, but an awesome soprano. Darrel started out alone, but was soon joined by his younger sibling. Rhea could match pitch before she could talk. She loves music and sings all the time. She is inspired by her older brother and often times gives 200% when prompted by him. She has an exceptional ear for music and plays piano and clarinet. Rhea is an outstanding athlete. She runs track and was one place away from going to the Junior Olympics this past Summer for the Carl Lewis Track Club – CL Stars. Her goal is to take home the gold this year and she has started off #1 all the way since the school season began. At the end of the school track year, with 25 schools in Fort Bend County School District, she won the district championship title in the 100 meter hurdles and the 300 hundred meter hurdles for 2009-2010. Rhea aspires to be a dentist when she grows up.
Alic (Paco) Walls, 14 years old, is next in the line. Alic is known for his raspy, soulful sound. He is compared to his mother with the raspy, hoarse tone. Paco is very laid back and doesn’t show a lot of excitement. At about the age of 7 months, his parents noticed him riding in his car seat, tapping his foot to a song playing over the car radio. It was then that they knew that this fever was catching in the Walls family. Paco soon joined his brother and sister as the alto of the group. Paco could win the attention of any crowd with his charm and his peculiar voice. At the age of 13, Paco struggled with the affects of puberty and tries to adjust to his voice changing. He manages to do a little tenor, because alto is not an option anymore. Paco declares that God spoke to him in a dream and called him by his name and told him that he would pastor a mega-church one day. To God be the Glory.
Ahjah Walls is the baby of the group, but not the baby of the family. She is 12 years old, but says she feels so much older. Ahjah started off a little differently than the others. Ahjah loved songs and singing. The difference was her vibrato was a little faster than everyone else’s and she couldn’t quite get her part and hold it. This did not seem to bother Ahjah, though, as she had so many other things she liked to do. Once, while at a program in the country, instead of singing, Ahjah asked if she could do gymnastics instead. She has since then developed into an awesome alto and loves to sing more than doing gymnastics. Ahjah has the riffs and the runs like her older brother and can emulate just about any artist. Ahjah has so many gifts. She spends her time listening to music, singing, and drawing. She will one day be a famous cartoonist.
The Walls’ love spending time with their granny, Bayonne Moody. They love listening to Kim Burrell, Kiki Sheard, The Soul Seekers, Mary Mary, and they love Dorinda Clark- Cole. They are just an ordinary bunch of kids, living a pretty ordinary life, aspiring to do extra-ordinary things in the future.
