About Group 1 Crew

Manwell, Blanca and Pablo met in a Bible study group before forming the band. All three had a love of the Lord and their passion for music brought them together as friends. Before long  they were making music together for and about the Lord.

Ultimately Jeff Adams became their manager and took them to the next level. He saw their potential and set up a showcase with record executives at Fervent Records. The Fervent team also saw their potential and they signed the group.

After Pablo and Blanca left the group, it now consists of Manwell Reyes and Sarah Sandoz. They continue to seek God as they create music and they are embracing this new season with renewed vigor and a greater grasp on who they are as a band. Since they released their first EP “I Have a Dream (2006), the group has won (5) GMA Dove Awards.
