Soon after, they would go on to record their first single, “Why I lift you high”. They completed their first EP titled “We Is One.” The group Only 1-Way name comes from bible verse Acts 4:12 “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, where by we must be save.” The individual names in the group 1-Way are: Christopher James Jones 22 yrs “Truth” Truth is a word that personifies everything that I am about, because I walk it, talk it, and preach it. Matthew Cue Jones 19yrs “King” Rev 1:6 says I am a king and I think and act as a king Parrish Jones 18yrs “Mo” (slang term for “More”) Want to obtain more of God’s wisdom, anointing, blessings, and power. These dynamic young men of God are sent by God to reach out to everyone and spread His word through ministry of rap. there's only one way to describe this group, beyond category.
