Record Sophomore Album Any Given Sunday
Chicago, IL — History was made when thousands of Gospel music lovers, industry executives, and artists from across the country gathered at Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church in Chicago, Illinois to witness the live recording of Charles Jenkins & Fellowship Chicago’s sophomore album “Any Given Sunday.” With the main sanctuary standing room only and three packed overflow areas the house was rocking giving God praise from start to finish.
Friends of Pastor Jenkins such as mega producer and label owner Warryn Campbell, Michelle Williams, Don Jackson, Fred Nelson, multi-Grammy award winning producer Harmony Samuels and others were able to preview nine of the eleven dynamic singles from the upcoming project. Carlton Jenkins, Vice President of Jenkins’ label Inspired People, is quoted saying, “It was a powerful recording. This album carries a collection of songs that churches all over the world can sing. The Power of God was felt on every one!”
Stand out singles from the night included the prayerful ballad “Hide Me from the Rain”, the high energy, southern Gospel stomper “This Means War”, and the Contemporary Christian/Gospel Music hybrid, “He Is God”. Newly signed Inspired People artist, Byron Cage lent his vocals to the corporate worship song and crowd favorite, “Just to Know Him”.
Vice President and General Manager of Motown Gospel, Larry Blackwell Jr. comments:
“How do you follow up the breakaway success of a church anthem like “Awesome”? Capture the same live, spirit filled energy with bold new church anthems- songs like “Can’t Imagine”, “This Is War”, “Just to Know Him” and “Hide Me from the Rain”. Experiencing Charles Jenkins & Fellowship Chicago’s live recording validates the fact that Any Given Sunday is one of this year’s most highly anticipated releases.”
By the overwhelming response from last Friday’s recording, it is evident that the world can look forward to being blessed by this release. The album “Any Given Sunday” is set to hit stores in September 2014.
