Jeremy Wallace and Elevated Praise are officially releasing their new single, “Standing on Your Word,” Tuesday, Oct. 15.
The track features this year’s breakout gospel artist, Denita Gibbs. She recently performed her single “Without You” live on the nationally syndicated Rickey Smiley Morning Show and debuted on the top 20 Billboard gospel chart.
Jeremy Wallace and Elevated Praise have been featured on numerous national gospel music sites and television the past few months, including Lee Bailey‘s EURWeb and Fox’s Good Day Alabama. The group was also recently nominated for four 2014 Rhythm of Gospel Awards.
“Standing on Your Word” is upbeat and gives listeners a taste of “down home” traditional gospel, while keeping a contemporary flare. It encourages listeners to put their trust in God when seeking success and also during life’s problems. Their LP, Press Through, gained air play on stations in the United Kingdom, as well as on some of the top stations in the region (95.7 Jamz).
“This song was fun to record; I had fun with it! It’s traditional, but with a modern twist. It took me back to when I was a kid in church,” says Jeremy Wallace and Elevated Praise soprano, Tenisha Grimmett. “I love the message of this song because it’s so simple – no matter what you’re going through in life; you can always stand on the Word of God. His Word is true.”
“It was birthed from Psalms 27,” explains Jeremy Wallace, who also wrote and produced the track for the album. “It just kind of evolved into one of those Scripture quoting songs, you know? If you’re going to sing a song about standing on His Word, then quote the Word! That’s Isaiah 62:6 – the Amplified version. All my life I’ve heard things about bringing God to remembrance of His promises. Whenever a person says, ‘God, You said,’ all of Heaven comes to attention because God is faithful to His Word.”
The new single, “Standing on Your Word,” is available on iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby, Google Play and other online retailers.
“Jeremy Wallace is a breath of fresh air in gospel music and Elevated Praise has big voices and a true heart for worship,” says DJ Strick (WBHJ-95.7 Jamz).
