Gospel Stars Celebrate President Obama in Tribute Album
From Bill Carpenter
CBN.com NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Central South Distribution, the largest independent Christian distributor in the USA, will release A Gospel Tribute to President Obama on June 9, 2009. With a $12.99 retail list price, the collection embodies a message of hope, inspiration, and faith.
Gospel megastar Donnie McClurkin of “We Fall Down” fame contributes the affirmation “King Inside of Me” while gold-selling artist Israel Houghton offers up “Send Me to the Nations.” Other men raising their voices include veteran vocalist Jerard Woods on “I’m Gonna Make It” and William Murphy on “Changes.”
Micah Stampley’s sky-high tenor mixes with Michael O’Brien’s jazzy tones on “Brothers and Friends.” Real life brothers, The Williams Brothers, shone their light on the warm and cozy retro soul-styled tune, “Still Here.”
R&B veterans Kelly Price & Shirley Murdock pay tribute to Michelle Obama, who has graced the cover of Time magazine and become a worldwide celebrity herself, on “The Curtain’s Raised.”
Gospel Dream contest winner Benita Washington admonishes the listener to look beyond the curtain and to claim one’s destiny on the sweeping ballad “This is Your Cue” which features samples of an Obama stump speech. Southern songbird Dottie Peoples brings the engaging “Closing In” to the party while singing evangelist Juanita Bynum adds, “Change is on the Way.” The album closes with the stirring “Path in the Water” by Bishop T.D. Jakes’ Potter’s House Mass Choir.
The bulk of the CD was produced by Grammy-winning production duo, Victor & Cedric Caldwell, who have worked with an array of best-selling artists ranging from Whitney Houston to Take 6. Such luminaries as Kevin Bond, Marc Harris, Tommy Sims and Myron Williams produced other tracks.
