FREDA BATTLE & THE TEMPLE WORSHIPPERS Preps For CD Release Concert & Online Listening Party
After a six year hiatus from the Gospel music industry, worship leader, song writer and recording artist Freda Battle is ready to offer up new music. Freda Battle & the Temple Worshippers highly anticipated CD HOW GLORIOUS & EXCELLENT IS OUR GOD has been making quite a buzz as of late.
On Friday, July 20, 2012, Freda Battle & The Temple Worshippers will be hosting a CD release concert at New Dimensions Church located at 100 Niantic Ave., in Providence, RI. Tickets are $20 (Includes admission and CD) and can be purchased at www.thejhardyagency.com.
Also Battle’s marketing and public relations firm the J. Hardy Agency will present an online listening party via their website www.thejhardyagency.com on Friday, July 20, which at that time digital purchases for the CD will be made available via cdbaby.com
In the coming weeks the CD will be available in retail stores nationally.
HOW GLORIOUS AND EXCELLENT IS OUR GOD, is produced by brother duo Gerald and David Langford and was recorded and streamed live in Boston at Morning Star Baptist Church, where Battle serves as a worship leader. Battle also wrote 8 of the 11 tracks on the CD.
From the high church energy of the title cut “How Glorious & Excellent Is Our God” and the Brazilian infused tune “150 Praises” to the passionate reflection of “His Presence Is Here” and the refreshing latin-flavored praise and worship song “Oh How I Love”, this striking 11-song collection features guest appearances from Dove Award-nominated and Stellar Award winning worship artist Stephen Hurd, Rodney Posey, Michael White and Bobby Perry (of Bobby Perry & R.A.I.N), is evidence not merely of a collection of great singers, but seasoned ministers.
Other notable features include Boston based artists Jerome Kyles and Ayana McDonald (of Bobby Perry & R.A.I.N), Temple Worshipper members Evette Anderson and Montez Cardwell and the prolific prowess of maestro George W. Russell, Jr. on piano.
Vicki Mack Lataillade, who is considered one of the most powerful women in Gospel music and has broken artists such as Kirk Franklin, Kurt Carr and Trin-i-tee 5:7 says, “I have loved Freda Battle since forever! She is the real deal! If you see Freda Battle in her full anointing, you will never be the same!
