The appearance kicks off media promoting the choir’s new and 27th CD Love Lead The Way that hits stores everywhere two days later on July 9, 2013 via a distribution agreement with Nashville, TN-based New Day Christian Distribution.
The choir thrilled millions around the world (over a billion watched the televised event) when it dynamically belted out “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” at this year’s inaugural swearing-in ceremony on the steps of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. The digital single of the choir’s unique rendition peaked at #16 on Billboard’s Digital Gospel chart and it’s featured on the new fifteen-track CD that boasts the majestic orchestrations that have become the choir’s trademark.
Their in-house team of writers composed most of the songs. There are soul-stirring ballads such as “Faithful to the End” and “Breathe,” as well as, up-tempo tracks like the title song and the rock-edged “Let Your Kingdom Come.” They also feature full-throttle hand-clappers such as “The Man” and “Working It Out.” The set is rounded out with new renditions of William McDowell’s #1 hit “I Won’t Go Back” and Preashea Hilliard’s “Oh, How We Love You.”
The 300-voice choir is a blend of ethnic and economic backgrounds, with members ranging from lawyers and doctors to former drug addicts. Over the years, the choir has performed at major venues such as Radio City Music Hall and Madison Square Garden. They’ve appeared on “Good Morning America” and other national television programs. Their amazing legacy includes six Grammy Awards, seven Dove Awards, two #1 Billboard charting CDs and over four million albums sold.
