01:14 Yes, he does. He's a musician for the group.
01:15 That's wonderful. How did you get started?
01:17 About seven years ago
01:19 we decided to put together ministry
01:21 that God can use to reach young people
01:23 and just reach anybody
01:24 that needed to hear about the word of God.
01:26 Yes, and the name Laos and Harmony,
01:29 tell us about that.
01:30 Laos is Greek for people. So we're people in harmony.
01:34 And we got it from a side ministry,
01:36 the Laos movement and they are missionaries.
01:39 So we decided to take that name Laos, People in Harmony.
01:43 And do you write most of the songs
01:45 or they, or they original songs or they are covers?
01:48 Yeah, well, we do all original songs
01:50 and God did bless me with the ability to write
01:52 and arrange songs.
01:54 I get help though from them...
01:56 That's great. That's great.

13:28 Pass the test in your testimony
13:35 Magnify the Lord with me
13:38 Magnify Him
13:44 Guess who is in the house today 3AM is here at Magnify Him.
13:49 Yeah! Good to have you here.
13:54 I want to go around and find out your names
13:57 and where are you from.
13:59 Speak in your mike for me.
14:00 My name is Jeff. I'm from Tampa, Florida.
14:02 Ah, Tampa.
14:04 My name is Mark. I'm from Timber Pines, Florida.
14:07 Okay. My name is Chris.
14:09 And I'm from Portsmouth, West Virginia.
14:11 My name is Mike. I'm from Orlando, Florida.
14:14 I'm Kelvin Mitchell. I'm from Tampa.
14:17 Arlan Hapton from Orlando, Florida.
14:19 All right.
14:20 So now some of you guys are from Florida
14:22 and Virginia did you say?
14:25 How did you get together?
14:28 I'd say, probably because a lot of us
14:30 know each other from either singing together
14:32 in another groups and things like that.
14:35 The Lord kind of work it out that
14:36 when we needed a new member someone knew somebody else
14:39 and kind of workout that way.
14:41 Oh, cool. And often do you practice?
14:46 Whenever we can.
14:48 Which is like, do you get together often?
14:51 'Cause you're in different states.
14:52 Well, we use technology.
14:55 What we do-- first of all
14:56 when we get together we come from our different destinations
15:00 and we meet in a mutual place
15:03 so that travel is good for everybody.
15:04 Oh, so kind of a central location?
15:07 Yeah, correct. Okay.
15:09 'Cause it's interesting to me how groups function.
15:12 You know, like especially when you're
15:14 kind of all over the country,
15:15 like Take 6 is all around the country
15:17 and so you kind of wonder,
15:19 how do you guys ever get together?
15:22 Well, what helps a lot is,
15:27 Kelvin will record everybody's parts at his house.
15:34 Each, each individual harmony part
15:36 and then he would email it to the corresponding members,
15:40 so we practice the part on our own.
15:43 So when we get together it cuts down the learning time.
15:47 So all we do is, when we get together
15:49 we just polish the rough edges,
15:51 but, by that time everybody pretty much knows
15:54 what their assignment is and what they need to do.
15:56 I love it. I love it, that's great.
15:59 Where did the name 3AM come from?
16:03 Well, 3AM actually, it's an acronym
16:05 for Three Angels Message taken from Revelation 14.
16:08 Like 3ABN, Three Angels Broadcasting.
16:11 Kind of sort, this is something like that.
16:12 It's amazing.
16:13 Actually it's funny, so many times people
16:15 when they announces, they will say, no 3ABN,
16:17 I mean 3AM, so we're pretty used to that.
16:21 We actually use it a lot to kind of,
16:24 open the door for conversation.
16:27 Lot of my co-workers, friends,
16:29 things like that will ask those questions.
16:30 Hey, 3AM is it 3 o'clock in the morning?
16:33 Well, somebody said, what time is it?
16:34 Three Adventist Men or like there was a I think
16:37 a little more than just 3.
16:38 But yes, that's really word comes from,
16:42 it's a matter of... making sure people understand
16:44 what it is that we're all about?
16:45 Which is the second coming of Christ
16:47 and that we have to be ready when He comes.
16:49 Yes. Amen.
16:50 Now do you have a CD?
16:53 Yes, we do. Tell us.
16:54 Tell us about it. What's the name of it?
16:56 The title of the CD is "All Because Of You"
17:00 very appropriate title.
17:01 Because there is nothing that we can do in our lives
17:05 individually, as a family,
17:07 as a church family without Christ.
17:09 So it's all because of Him.
17:11 And we're fortunate enough to get with a recording company
17:16 at Oklahoma City, Tait music group
17:19 and we have a beautiful partnership with them
17:22 and we have our debut CD through them, that's out not.
17:25 So we want you to go out and get it.
17:26 Awesome. Awesome.
17:28 How can we get it? How can our viewers get it?
17:31 Best thing to do, whether you going on iTunes
17:34 or going to the regular store
17:36 would be to go to the website which is www.3ammovement.com
17:41 and you can go through there, there will be links
17:43 that you can go from the website.
17:44 You can also see videos of us singing, rehearsing,
17:47 cure selections from the album itself.
17:49 And you know see some interviews
17:51 and find out a lot more about us.

18:46 Todd Wilson. Yeah, who else?
18:50 I think that's... We did something's.
18:52 Amongst the group we did something ourselves.
18:54 Kelvin does most of our vocal arranging.
18:57 Okay. So Big shout out to Kelvin.
19:00 Kelvin actually arranged Bless This House.
19:03 Bless This House is one of my favorites.
19:06 It's a wonderful song. And you arranged it?
19:08 Yes. That's awesome.
19:11 I have a feeling that not only our viewers gonna be blessed
19:16 by getting the CD, but by watching you also today.
19:21 God has blessed these young men with a wonderful gift
19:25 and they truly want to use it for Him.
19:27 They want to use it to Magnify Him.
19:42 Hear the cries of the shackled
19:48 From the onset of time
19:52 For the chains of defeat
19:57 There's no key
20:03 See the tears of the broken
20:11 The cries of the slaves
20:15 Is there no one worthy
20:21 To set us free?
20:34 Now the crying has ceased
20:39 As the chorus rings out
20:44 The shackle released
20:49 From their chain
20:54 And thousands of voices
21:00 Are swelling the song
21:05 Worthy the Lamb
21:10 That was slain
21:27 Worthy the Lamb
21:31 That was slain
21:48 Worthy the Lamb
21:53 That was slain
22:00 Then all the archangels
22:05 The saints of all time
22:10 Holding their crowns
22:15 In their hands
22:21 Fall down before Him
22:27 Joining the song
22:35 Worthy the Lamb!
22:40 Oh, worthy,
22:53 Worthy the Lamb
22:58 That was slain
23:08 Oh, worthy
23:15 Worthy the Lamb
23:19 That was slain
23:26 Praise Him,
23:29 Oh, praise Him
23:36 Praise the Lamb

24:03 That was slain
24:08 We'll praise the Lamb
24:14 That was slain
24:20 You're worthy
24:22 We love you love you Lord
24:28 This next song has a very special message and meaning.
24:32 It comes from the very heart of God's deep and abiding love.
24:36 Through his Son Jesus He gave the ultimate sacrifice.
24:40 And His only desire is that we let Him in.
25:00 There is a man who's been hurt one too many times
25:07 Searching for a love he feels he'll never find
25:13 One foot in one out walking a thin line
25:18 He's at a crossroads in his life
25:21 Trying to make up his mind
25:24 So he left all he knew
25:27 Looking for the love he never found
25:31 Lost and confused
25:33 Trying to get on solid ground
25:40 He's knocking at your door
25:42 Open up your heart and let the Father in
25:46 He's calling out to you
25:47 Just so you can be cleansed from your sins
25:52 He's knocking at your door
25:53 Open up your heart and let the Father in
25:56 Trying to tell you
25:58 You can try you can fight
26:00 but the pain will never end
26:04 Just let Him in
26:07 You see, this man had everything
26:09 Anyone could ever wish for things like
26:13 Cars, houses, money in the bank
26:15 But he still wanted more
26:19 See none of these things
26:21 Could ever fill the void he had inside
26:24 To return to love he once had known
26:27 He had to decide
26:30 So he left all he knew
26:32 Looking for the love he now had found
26:36 Lost and confused, trying to get on solid ground
26:45 He's knocking at your door
26:47 Open up your heart and let the Father in
26:51 He's calling out to you
26:53 Just so you can be cleansed from your sins
26:57 He's knocking at your door
26:58 Open up your heart and let the Father in
27:01 Trying to tell you
27:03 You can try you can fight but the pain will never end
27:09 He's knocking at your door
27:10 Open up your heart and let the Father in
27:14 He's calling out to you
27:16 just so you can be cleansed from your sins
27:20 He's knocking at your door
27:22 Open up your heart and let the Father in
27:25 Trying to tell you
27:26 You can try you can fight but the pain will never end
27:32 Just let Him in
27:37 Just let Him in.
