David & the Giants were truly pioneers in the early days of Contemporary Christian music. David Huff & his twin brothers, Rayborn & Clayborn, were born into the Kingdom of God in 1977 & spent the next 20+ years ministering in churches across the U.S. & around the world. During this time, D & tG also had several other members such as Keith Thibodeaux on drums from 1979-1989, Lance Huff, Kellye Huff, Gerald Hagan, & Dennon Dearman.
In the 60's & 70's, David & the Giants were a very successful Rock 'n' Roll band, & played with many famous groups & artists such as; Styx, Black Oak Arkansas, Cheech & Chong, The Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart, Chuck Berry & Stevie Wonder to name a few. They had many regional hits including, "Ten Miles High" & "Superlove. Their drummer, Keith Thibodeaux, was the former Little Ricky on the "I Love Lucy" show. Keith would eventually leave D&G because of his decision to serve the Lord, but would later re-join the new "Christian" David & the Giants in 1979.
Born in Pineville, Mississippi, David Huff, the legendary singer/songwriter of David and the Giant's fame, is known nationwide as the premier Southern Rock pioneer of Christian music. With a collection of songs that echoed the passion of the times, David along with the presence of his brothers, created some of the classic hits of the era, such as "Here's My Heart" and "I Can't Live Without You." He and twin brothers Rayborn and Clayborn, were born into the Kingdom of God in 1977 and spent the next 20-plus years ministering in Churches and auditoriums across the United States and around the world.
Like so many before him, David struggled with how to serve God through music. Following the encouragement from a local pastor to be part of an outreach for the lost, David clearly remembers hearing the voice of God call him to share the message of the Gospel through his gift of music. David vividly recalls God saying, "…Keep on singing my song." And so he did. While David W. Huff continues his career as a solo artist, the Huff brothers do continue to perform on occasion as, David & the Giants.
