Popular Band with Deep Roots
Originally from Birmingham, AL, Rush of Fools took their name from 1 Corinthians 1:26-31, where Paul teaches that God has chosen the foolish things of this world to shame the wise, and the weak to shame the strong, so our faith is in God not men.
Rush of Fools gained popularity in 2007 when their hit single "Undo" remained at number one for four weeks on "20 The Countdown Magazine" - a syndicated weekly Christian music countdown program. In 2008, the band was nominated for four Dove awards.
