One Accord was founded in Florida, USA in 1994 by brothers Alex and John Gibson and John’s wife Michelle. Alex was a former member of the male quartet Amigos, stationed in Puerto Rico and known throughout South America. Meanwhile John and Michelle had just spent 5 years on tour with Endless Praise. After an extensive tour throughout Central and South America, John and Michelle decided to take a well deserved break and spend time in Florida with Alex and family. The long awaited reunion between John and Alex reignited childhood memories of singing together and with the addition of Michelle, the trio was born. The group began receiving invitations to sing in neighbouring Churches, Youth Rally’s and Conferences and even received repeated airplay on Trinity Broadcasting Network following the taping of a live concert at Bethel Baptist Temple in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. John had the chance to help several local ministries and received a prestigious Silver Angel Award (Excellence in Media Award) in 1996 . Michelle wrote three songs on the album was also recognized as an Angel recipient. Being unable to extend their visa in the US, Michelle and John returned home to Australia and continued to sing as husband and wife. They spent 2 years touring with the well known Australian youth band Iron and Clay and at the same time performed monthly with the Sydney Praise Band. Having the chance to work in many High Schools with Iron and Clay was a source of inspiration for Michelle’s self titled solo album which was produced by husband John and co-produced by Michelle. An invitation back to the US in 2003 saw the chance to involve their 10 year old daughter Naomi with her parent’s ministry and her obvious flare for music found herself a permanent place in the new One Accord. Now the group continue to minister as a family across Australia and overseas at churches, rally's, schools, festivals, carols and other special events.
