Designed as a celebration, this release revisits the group’s biggest hits over the span of their successful career with a fresh face lift and concert like interpretation. In addition, the group presents several new tracks, including the title track which is currently the #1 single on Billboard’s Gospel Airplay Chart and a nominee for Song of the Year at this year’s Stellar Awards. The album features the huge single and a Spanish version of the track featuring Freddy Rodriguez. Look for collaborations with Travis Greene and Maranda Curtis, along with powerful new tracks such as “Grateful”, “We Serve”, and the highly energetic “No Reason To Fear”. This album is quickly going down as one of the best collections ever from this aggregation.
WILLIAM MCDOWELL: Sounds of Revival II: Deeper
Florida based worship leader William McDowell returns with the sequel to the album that produced his first Grammy nomination and his first Dove Award. Sounds of Revival, Part Two: Deeper picks up literally where its predecessor left off. Recorded the same night as Sounds of Revival, this project brings us more of the worship experience that swept the global. Fourteen tracks strong, McDowell enlists the help of Israel Houghton, Jonathan Stockstill, Nicole Binion, Travis Greene, and Tina Campbell to deliver another top-notch worship project. As difficult as it can be to capture a worship experience in a recording, McDowell and his team have perfected this art as Sounds of Revival Part Two: Deeper demonstrates. Add this one to your arsenal quickly.
JOR’DAN ARMSTRONG: Vibes
Louisiana born and Atlanta bred, urban singer/songwriter Jor’Dan Armstrong cannot be boxed in or stifled as his newest EP reminds us. At the top of 2016, he released the Confident EP and now he returns with Vibes. Seven tracks strong, this album has a very distinct approach as the album is all about world music. With influences from the Carribean and African sounds, this project is ranking high as one of his best works to date. Led by the single “So Much Luv”, this project is another gem. Continuing his ongoing partnership with producer TedyP, the duo share their undeniable musical chemistry. Look out for track “No Way” featuring The Voice alumnus Darius Scott.
JERMAINE DOLLY: Come And Knock On Our Door (Single)
One of the greatest success stories of an independent artist in the last decade is that of Jermaine Dolly. With his lone single “You”, he became one of gospel’s freshest faces as his single became a top 5 single on Billboard’s Gospel Airplay Chart. He now reaches back to an 80s sitcom for inspiration for his latest single. Sampling the themes song from Three’s Company, Dolly presents “Come And Knock On Our Door”. The clever mid-tempo serves as a brilliant invitation for many to return to church and to Christ. This looks to be the lead single from his full length forthcoming release titled The Dolly Express.
RON POINDEXTER: I Didn’t Die (Single)
Chicago, IL has been hailed as the “birthplace” of Gospel music and it continues to produce incredible talents. Add Ron Poindexter to that list. His debut single “Just Jesus” was a powerful introduction to his artistry. He now returns with an up tempo track that will stay on repeat. “I Didn’t Die” heralds the power of God’s protection from bad intentions of both the enemy and those that were self-inflicted. The musicality on this track serves as an adequate accompaniment for the brilliant poise and vocal command of Poindexter. Watch out for this artist and scoop up this single quickly.
ANITA WILSON: I’ve Seen Him Work (Single)
Two time Grammy nominee Anita Wilson kicks off the new year with the release of her new single titled “I’ve Seen Him Work”. Wilson returns to a live setting for this new single, which is the lead track from her upcoming recording Sunday Song. Backed by The Company, Wilson embraces the formula that brought us the hit “Jesus Will”. With this new mid-tempo track, she gives us the classic feel of The Tommies, The Hawkins, and Richard Smallwood all in one fantastic song. If this is any indication of what Sunday Song looks like, expect a big year from Anita Wilson.
