Their single 'Oceans' topped Billboard's Christian music charts for 59 non-consecutive weeks, where it's remained in the top five for a year and a half.

The Executive Director of the Ayn Rand Institute, Yaron Brook, will also be on the program discussing his new book, Equal is Unfair. The book, co-authored with Don Watkins, presents a controversial argument: that the key to reviving the American Dream is not to fight inequality, but to celebrate unequal achievements.
Yaron Brook will be a featured speaker at the upcoming Atlas Shrugged Revolution Benefit Dinner in New York City at the St. Regis Hotel on September 29th. The dinner supports the Ayn Rand Institute’s mission to bring Rand’s ideas to the widest possible audience in high school classrooms, colleges and universities, through the media and to the nation’s policy makers and business leaders.
