Trin-i-tee 5:7 was a gospel trio from New Orleans, Louisiana in the late 1990’s. The group, who sold over 2.5 million albums, was marketed as a gospel alternative to R&B girl groups such as Destiny’s Child and TLC. The 1990’s saw the emergence of this type of “Urban Gospel” sound aimed directly at inner city youth in major black markets.

The group’s self titled debut album was released in 1998. The project debuted at No. 3 on the gospel charts and eventually stepped up to the top slot. It also reached the R&B Top 20 charts and was eventually certified gold. The album created three gospel radio hits in “You Can Always Call His Name,” “Mary Don’t You Weep” and “God’s Grace.” The CD would go on to spend 7 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Album chart, over 30 weeks in the Top on Billboard’s Contemporary Christian chart, and almost 50 weeks on Billboard’s Top R&B Albums chart.
In mid-1999, as they were about to finish recording their second album, Terri Brown left the group to focus more on her family, and was quickly replaced by the group’s make up artist Adrian Anderson. (You take talent wherever you can find it! – RLS) [Source: Wikipedia]
