Big God (1991)

Updated: Feb 23


Big God is the 34th studio album by the Christian music vocal group The Imperials, released in 1991 on Star Song Records.


The personnel line-up for this album consists of Armond Morales, David Will and two new singers Jonathan Pierce (who was credited on the album by his birth name Jonathan Hildreth. Pierce is his middle name) and, in an Imperials first, Armond's sister Pam Morales. Pam would be the first and only female member of the group. Morales and Pierce replaced Ron Hemby and David Robertson who both previously appeared on the 1990 album Love's Still Changing Hearts.


Jason Beddoe was with the group temporarily but he left the group while in the midst of recording Big God so Armond brought Pam to fill in for Beddoe. This line-up would stay on until their next album, Stir It Up (1992). Big God peaked at number 22 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart. The album is produced by Ken Mansfield, whose association credits include The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Dolly Parton, Waylon Jennings and Andy Williams among others.
