Lee Terry and A New Sound have teamed up for their collaborative record, “Be Praised” featuring GRAMMY-nominated and Dove Award-winning Gospel Artist Kierra Sheard. The highly anticipated single has been released in partnership and distribution with independent record label, DARE Records. “Be Praised” is available on all streaming platforms now!
“Be Praised” is a powerful and melodic song that was written in the writing and recording sessions with A New Sound, a talented music collective lead by producers Marty West and Lee Terry, and including veteran writers and fellow creatives such as Shanika Bereal, Anthony Wilkins, Ronnie Terry, Tiffany Palmer and Kameron Williams. “Be Praised” is the first of many songs the team wrote, and the first to be featured from the album slated to release later this year.
“This song is a reminder that God Deserves All Praises,” says Terry. “My prayer and hope is that everyone who listens to this is reminded that we have a part to play in honoring God with our praise.”
