On an inspiring roll in the wake of three consecutive Top 15 Billboard Hot Gospel Songs. The Akron, OH based R&B/Hip Hop Quartet Half Mile Home blends funk, soul and “woke ness” on their dynamic upcoming single “I Won’t Judge” – a portion of whose proceeds will be dedicated to the Boiling Point Foundation. This is a nonprofit organization helping many people deal with mental health issues as well as the loss of a loved one.
The success of Half Mile Home’s most recent single “This Far” sparked the formation of the group’s anti-violence non-profit The Boiling Point, which is designed to provide resources to help young people channel their anger and negative energy into positive outlets before they turn to destructive activities that sometimes have deadly consequences.
Half Mile Home formed in 2004, the group’s previous radio single “Thinking of Me,” which reached the Top 15 of Billboard’s Gospel Airplay chart, was ranked #39 on the publication’s 2017 Year-End Top 50 Gospel chart. Their third album Church Muzik & Inspiration (Church Boy Muzik/Selecto Hits), was released in 2013 and peaked at #9 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart. Their latest offering Don’t Judge Me reached #11 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart and included “Thinking of Me” and the #11 airplay hit “More than Enuff.”
