Commissioned is a popular Gospel music group. The group recorded twelve albums over a period of seventeen years.
Originally from Detroit, Michigan, the six original members were Keith Staten, Fred Hammond, Mitchell Jones, Karl Reid, Michael Brooks, and Michael Williams. In 1991 Staten and Brooks left the group and were replaced by Marvin Sapp, Maxx Frank, and Eddie Howard, Jr… By 1994 Howard had left the group and Williams left a year later. Hammond also left to pursue a career with the group Radical For Christ. He was replaced by Montrell Darrett. By 2000, Marcus Cole and Chris Poole had taken the place of Sapp and Darrett on the group’s last studio album. In 2002 Commissioned released a reunion album which brought back most of the group’s former members and featured most of its greatest hits. The group performed live on stage during the 2002 Stellar Awards in Atlanta, Georgia.

    I cannot get enough of Commissioned. They have broken the mold on the traditional gospel sound and proven any style of music can be used to praise and give honor to the Lord. Their Reunion dvd is awesome and is a must-have for all Commissioned lovers. I thank them for using their gifts to spread the word of the Lord.

    Commissioned will always occupy a special place in the heart of Gospel music lovers who listened to their anointed ministry from the 1980's to their last cd in 2002. Their songs helped us get over some things, get through some things, gave us power to overcome some things, and strength to deny some things. They called us to get intimate with God, get POWER from God, and give praise and worship to God! Their music is classic, their influence is unquestioned-every boy group in the late 80's and early 90's borrowed from their harmonies, musicianship and beats (especially from Number 7)-and their legacy remains strong. They, along with the Winans, the Clark Sisters & Andrae' Crouch, ushered in the modern contemporary sound of Gospel that has been expounded upon by Kirk Franklin, Mary Mary, Deitrick Haddon, Tye Tribbet & Hez Walker. Their contribution to the genre is immeasurable! I still play and love their music!
