Chauncey decided to start his own group in 2010, And after hearing a sermon being preached out of Romans 8:14 he knew he had found the appropriate name for his group, “The Sons of God” , wanting to be a group led by the spirit of God
He recruited Anthony Britt a tenor from Wilmington Delaware by the way of Baltimore MD also from a family of singers and preachers , the two of them used to bowl together all over the country and talked frequently about singing gospel together, he then recruited Allan Martin a co-worker at the Postal Service, Chauncey who is also the Minister of Music at New Beginning in Christ in Capitol Heights MD played keyboards with Allan’s group a couple of times and always liked his voice and demeanor , put that with talented musicians like David Walton on lead guitar who Chauncey borrows from the Gospel Aires, David Pannell on Bass who has been like a brother, who Chauncey borrows from many groups, talented drummer Carlos Dickerson who is his nephew and the incomparable James Dixon on Keyboards and you have the Sons of God. James Dixon an accomplished pianist and composer , also has a CD out with the Out Reach Community Choir , The Sons of God are often accompanied by Dean Cavanaugh a tremendous balladeer who is the Lead singer for the Kings of Harmony , he and Chauncey have always considered themselves as brothers and love to sing together, Dean has performed with almost everybody, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with the Clovers and has stood in with the Intruders, Halo and many others , He is a definite asset to The Sons of God.
