Chesapeake, VA – The sanctuary of Mt. Lebanon Baptist Church embodied an electrifying atmosphere of praise as Zion lifted their voices! The thriving Chesapeake, VA church, known as The Mount, and their anointed music department rendered their first live recording last fall and are now set to release a highly charged, passionately expressive, praise and worship project that exemplifies a chorus of sound like none have heard.
Under the ministerial leadership of Bishop K.W. Brown and the musical direction of Stellar Award nominee Minister Earl Bynum, The Mount Unity Choir has delivered a collection of perfected praise that is setting forth a charge of electrifying worship. With over 100 voices strong, the pristine choir is being noted as one of Virginia’s best-kept secrets. And now, with their inaugural musical endeavor, the word, the sound, and the praise is out!
“Earl Bynum and The Mount Lebanon Choir are one of Virginia’s best combined voices. They are anointed to sing the gospel!” expresses Ed Stephens, Jr., President – Virginia Gospel Announcers Guild. “I recommend this project and we are proud to include it as another powerful musical masterpiece from the talented maestro Minister Earl Bynum.”
Bishop K.W. Brown Presents Earl Bynum and The Mount Unity Choir- Live will soon be available in CD and DVD formats via K.W. Brown Ministries, a division of Mt. Lebanon Baptist Church, with distribution by Habakkuk Music / INgrooves Fontana Distribution. Marketing and publicity for the project will be powered by The Bellamy Group. “I am excited to be a part of this great project and to work with such an awesome team,” says April Washington, CEO of Habakkuk Music, Inc. “With the release of this project, many (new people) will discover the incredible ministry gifts of Bishop Kim Brown, Earl Bynum and The Mt. Lebanon Choir.”
Featured guests on the project include The First Lady of Praise and Worship and President of the COGIC International Music Department Dr. Judith McAllister who wrote and provides lead vocals on “Arise”, a vibrant anthem the choir delivers with a melodious thundering sound of triumph. Chicago’s Evangelist Lemmie Battles offers her signature energetic delivery on the churchy, foot stomping song “Victory”. The project musically reflects the diversity of The Mount’s ministry by incorporating traditional gospel, contemporary worship, acapella choral arrangements, jazz-flavored tunes and stand out songs by Award-winning Contemporary Christian songwriter Tifani Wilson who penned “Praise Awaits” and the sweet worship ballad “Most Holy Lord”.
Minister Earl Bynum also provided his songwriting talents on the project and takes the vocal lead on the choir’s first radio single “Bless The Name Of The Lord”, which is being added immediately into radio rotations. “This song is an anthem that will resonate in churches and with believers across the country,” states Gerard Bonner, Program Director – Bonnerfide Radio. “Earl Bynum and The Mount Unity Choir have a hit on their hands!”
