What parents need to know

Positive messages

Talks about being who you are and not worrying about others, trying to make a difference in the world for the better. There's obvious, but not "in-your-face" devotion to God ("We write our future…/we don't want to regret the choices we make," "Today I could share your grace," and "On a mission to be as good as I can").

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Mission Six is made up of five young guys who are open about their devotion to God and sing about it in their music. They all "put God first" in their lives and count God as the sixth member of their group. The music is Jonas Brothers-esque pop rock with younger voices and devotional lyrics, but there's nothing "in-your-face" or offensive in their approach.

What's the story?

Popping onto the tween music scene with very youthful energy -- the band ranges in age from 12-14 -- and open devotion, are Noah (lead vocals, guitar), Issac (vocals, keys), Michael (vocals, bass), David (drums), and Anthony (lead guitar), the five members of the Christian pop rock band, Mission Six. Debuting their first album, SUPERHERO, the band's style emulates the popular Jonas Brothers, but with inspirational lyrics to encourage a life lived for God.

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

Christian music has come a long way, and with Mission Six's Superhero, it has come even further. They sing about God, living your path, and trying to make a difference, but with captivating rhythms and simple, non-obtrusive lyrics. The vocals, at times, are a little squeaky, but, then again they're barely teens. Superhero is full of music to inspire and encourage; in the first track, the floppy-haired do-gooders profess, "We write our future today/with every choice we make/every word we say." Isn't this what we want our kids to realize? In the versatile "Star Warz," bass thumps anchor the declaration, "Wish that I could make a difference/save the planet everyday../created for a special purpose/gonna live like that today." Mission Six gives their bubble-gum rock a positive purpose and that alone is worth a listen for impressionable ears. Don't worry -- they're far from bible beaters -- but their steadfast faith, especially today, is refreshing.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about what they think about bands who openly sing about their faith. Do you think it's admirable? Should there be more Christian rock groups in the mainstream? Why do you think there aren't more? Families can open up about their own thoughts on faith.
