“I am so excited about the release of ‘Rejoice with Me’ and proud to be a part of Dr. Jones’ project,” says Evans who recently starred in TV One’s popular “R&B Divas” reality show. “Having watched his show for years to see my favorite gospel artists, as well as his singers & band, I never imagined I’d one day be among them.”
For his part, Jones says of Evans, “I’m so honored that she’d lend her voice to this project and she did a phenomenal job.” The digital single is exclusively sold on iTunes http://smarturl.it/
For the last 33 years, Dr. Bobby Jones has spent his Sunday mornings rejoicing with millions of gospel lovers around the globe who tune in to his weekly Black Entertainment Television (BET) program, “Bobby Jones Gospel.” It’s the longest running program in cable TV history. He’s also released a dozen or so album releases and hosted syndicated radio programs like his weekly “Bobby Jones Countdown.”
Jones formed the New Life Singers in 1975. He later expanded the group’s membership and changed its name to NSC (Nashville Super Choir). Since the latter 1990s, Faith Evans has delivered solid Top 10 urban radio hits with “Soon As I Get Home,” “Love Like This,” “All Night Long,” “I Love You,” “Again” and “Never Let You Go.” In 2012, Evans released a huge CD entitled “R&B Divas” that featured her Adult Urban AC radio hit “Tears of Joy.”
