ERNIE HAASE & SIGNATURE SOUND joined MICHAEL W. SMITH for an epic version of his iconic hit, “Friends.” The group released the video collaboration on Friday, March 11, 2022 via their Facebook and YouTube channels. 

Haase says: "We've crossed paths with Michael W. Smith many times during the years and I’ve always wanted to connect and collaborate but with all of our schedules, it just never worked out. During the pandemic, when no one was really traveling, we were able to make this a reality. This really was a dream come true.”

EHSS & MWS will reunite once again for an Alaskan cruise this July 2022. Click here for more information and reservations. The cruise will also feature Tony Dungy, Jonathan Traylor, Travis Cottrell, Debbie Smith and Stephen Bargatze.

Earlier, in 2021, Ernie welcomed the CCM pioneer for a wide-ranging interview to the group's Good To Be Home show. That interview may be viewed here.

The multi-GRAMMY nominated, GMA Dove Award-winning group is currently in the studio preparing a yet-to-be-titled new studio project set to be released later in 2022.


Ernie Haase has built Signature Sound into a world-renowned quartet that spans a wide variety of genres and cultures. With unique performances and unmistakable, four-part harmonies, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound have journeyed across the globe offering energy, excitement, and encouragement through its powerful brand. 

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound's most recent project, Keeping On, was nominated for GRAMMY® award. Keeping On follows Ernie Haase & Signature Sound’s Something Beautiful, a tribute to the legacy of Bill and Gloria Gaither, which also received a GRAMMY® nomination. Gaither Music Group also released Ernie Haase & Signature Sound’s Billboard Top Ten Jazz Album, A Jazzy Little Christmas, that received national attention from Fox & Friends and Huckabee, along with being ranked by the Los Angeles Times as one of the “Best Christmas Albums of 2019.” 

Touring over 100 dates a year, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound has also performed the national anthem multiple times at NBA games and appeared on ESPN with NASCAR. As group founder, Haase is a creative, hard-working tenor whose early roots with the unforgettable and legendary quartet The Cathedrals helped begin his dream to form a powerhouse group of his own.
