Some of the original lead vocalists and musicians that made up the “Choir’s Choir” affectionately known to most as just “The Tommies,” originally under the direction of the late trailblazer, Rev. Milton Brunson, can still be seen and heard through the vision of Darius Brooks who reassembled former members of the famed *"Thompson Community Singers" from around the country and put them together again to form THE TOMMIES REUNION.
The Tommies Reunion is comprised of former members of the Thompson Community Singers as well as some new young talent that treasures the experience of working with the faces and voices that sent the group to the top of the charts during the late 80’s and 90’s and ushered in the contemporary gospel sound which led to them being called the #1 choir in the country and placed them permanently in gospel music history.
This collaboration resulted in The Tommies Reunion receiving 2008 Stellar Award Nominations for “Traditional Choir of the Year” and “Choir of the Year” for their first CD, Side A. “Side B” their second release garnered two 2009 Stellar Award Nominations for “Traditional Choir of the Year,” and “Music Video of the Year.”
these accomplishments, The Tommies Reunion has just gotten started! On Monday,
August 29, 2016, The Tommies Reunion along with the Dream Team, consisting of Darius Brooks, Percy Bady, Steve Stone Huff, Richard Gibbs, Kevin
Brunson, Al Willis, Kevin Brunson
and newcomer Donyea Goodman, held a live DVD and CD recording with over 2,000
fans, supporters, pastors, artists, musicians, vocalists and industry
professionals from all over this country. That night was historic! They
recorded 14 ALL NEW ORIGINAL SONGS that provided a catalog of music that promises to permeate the hearts and souls
of people from every walk of life.

That night, August 29th, the consensus is, they did just that! The experience was spirit filled, uplifting and inspiring to all who were there.
