Juanita debuts at # 1
Music World Gospel/Son Flower Records artist, Juanita Bynum new single, “Soul Cry (Oh, Oh, Oh),” debuts at #1 this week on Billboard’s Christian Singles/Tracks chart and #2 for Billboard’s Top Singles chart. The song was the #1 Most Increased Airplay Song at gospel radio and was the #1 Most Added Song last week. “Soul Cry” was also The Black Gospel Blog’s Pick of the Week and here’s what they said: “Gospel songs with staying power are soul cries. Created or birthed rather than written, they burst forth from the artist during periods of utmost despair. It’s the spirit hungering for cathartic expression when nothing else makes sense. ‘Precious Lord,’ ‘Never Would Have Made It,’ and other gospel songs have this in common.”
