Keith Williams has earned his first Top Ten with the release of his sophomore CD “Tone For Worship” that debuts at #8 on next week’s Billboard Top Gospel Albums chart. It is the highest CD chart debut of any new solo male gospel artist this year to date.
The uplifting urban inspirational and faith-oriented set was designed for those who enjoy their gospel with a velvety touch and warm sophistication. The tunes set the tone for worship at home, driving down the freeway or from a Sunday morning church pew.
“All I can say is God is good,” Williams says. “This day has been a long time coming because the CD was supposed to be released last year but we wanted it to be right so we took our time and I’m really pleased and humbled by the public response to it.”
Keith Williams album release event was held in Washington, DC at the historic Howard Theatre. EPM Music Group sponsored the event in conjunction with Radio One’s Praise 104.1 FM radio station. Praise 104.1 FM midday announcer Cheryl Jackson and singer Lil’ Mo of TV One’s R&B Divas reality show hosted the event.
Williams’ promotional tour alongside Earnest Pugh and Vincent Tharpe & Kenosis has been successful, at concerts around the country and continues to hit major markets such as Chicago, Richmond, Oakland, Houston, Detroit, Baltimore and Memphis at the Memphis Gospel Music Festival among more.
