Eventually Michel and Aliston were sponsored and given the opportunity to migrate to Canada. Their brother Fabian, who was feared to have been killed, was later miraculously reunited with his brothers in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in 1997. The purpose and healing people found in the music the brothers shared in the refugee camps, led to them later founding the group Krystaal, whose award winning music style blends gospel, hip-hop, R&B and African styles. Today, their aim is to share the hope that music brought them with others, particularly children who, like themselves, have been orphaned by war.
In 2004, they released their album "Keep On Standing" which was honored with several awards and nominations including four gospel music MAJA Awards, Artist of the Year, Group of the Year, Album of the Year and Canadian National Song of the Year; two Canadian Gospel Music Association awards for "Contemporary Gospel Album of the Year" and "Best Urban Song"; and four nominations by Canadian gospel musics peoples' choice VIBE Awards.
They have recently released their latest album entitled Speak To Me. On Sept 22, 2006 they launched the "Krystaal World Peace Tour" advocating peace -- politically, interpersonally and spiritually -- around the world.
Keep On Standing - The Story of Krystaal chronicles their amazing journey and the miraculous series of events that reunited the brothers in Canada. This is a true story of hope, faith and deliverance.
