Hutchins garnered the assistance of the ingenious musical and production skills of Michael Bereal (Judith McAllister, Kurt Carr, Shirley Caesar, Donnie McClurkin, Beverly Crawford) for his forthcoming October 15 release HOSANNA. “My vision for this project is to help aide listeners in worship and that churches across the country would add these songs to their Sunday morning music repertoire,” Hutchins states. “I chose to work with Michael again because of his ability to interpret my music,” he continues. “HOSANNA is true to the sound of morning worship, while at the same time embraces the new technologies in music.”
