Early Days of We The Kingdom

We the Kingdom is an American contemporary Christian music group that was started in Georgia and is based in Nashville. The group that makes modern Christian music.

The family band, which includes brothers Scott Cash and ED Cash, daughter of Ed, Franni, his son Martin, and a close friend named Andrew Bergthold, has been around since all the Cash brothers were young.

Their father played the guitar and their mother played the piano, so there was always music in their house. Even though Ed and Scott were 11 years apart in age, when they were in their teens and early 20s, they both went on similar paths as traveling artists and were given the chance to be deeply invested in the Young Life ministry. But when they each had children, they had to put their dreams of becoming artists on hold.

Musical Career

After getting off the road to spend more quality time with his growing family, Scott started writing and producing with his brother Ed. The brothers also wrote many songs together, including “Whom Shall I Fear (God of Angel Armies).” Even though they didn’t want to be artists anymore, both brothers kept on leading worship and playing music at Young Life camps.

On August 16, 2019, they created the song “Dancing on the Waves” to play the song at a Young Life camp occasion. This was the first time they all performed together, and the song was about a hard time they had all just been through dealing with church abuse.

Controversies and allegations: We The Kingdom

Just like other successful and famous music bands, We The Kingdom also faced difficult times in their career. The most important and brilliant member of the band, Franni Rae Cash, who is the songwriter and singer, faced a dark time that was a threat to the band.

She talked about a hard moment in life when she was spiritually abused and hurt herself to deal with it. Then came sadness and worry. But Franni told the Trevor Talks podcast in an honest conversation, “Wherever the enemy attacks us the most is just where God commands to use us the most.”

She was able to heal in the end because she spent time in God’s presence and had the guidance of her band members, who are also her family. Because of this, We The Kingdom has kept focusing on making sure everyone is healthy and happy. Even counseling is something the band does together. Franni keeps this in mind even when she’s on tour, which she says is often much harder than people think. Franni has learned that her anxious thoughts are signs that she needs to pay attention to them before they take over.

Franni says, “I’m starting to learn about healthy rhythms so I don’t feel like this crazy thing is taking over my life, but so I can keep an eye on it.” “I am kind to myself and learn these patterns to stay healthy.”
