4Him (1990)


4Him is the self-titled debut album by the Christian music male vocal group 4Him. The album was released on April 19, 1990 by Benson Records and was produced by Don Koch, Jonathan David Brown, Christopher Harris and Mark Heimermann. The album showcased the group's vocals mixing ballads and upbeat pop songs. Group member Mark Harris co-wrote two songs and wrote the track "Living Water, Bread of Life." 4Him covers the Paul Davis 1980 track "Do Right" (#1 Christian AC/CHR, number 23 Billboard Hot 100).
