Free Download Single from Sacred Harmony

Great artists take numerous musical styles and influences, add their own talents and personality, and create a unique sound all their own. Sacred Harmony personifies that. With a sound unlike any other group in Gospel music, the Tennessee-based trio is breaking through barriers with their blended style.
With well over a decade of ministry behind them, Sacred Harmony has seen God do some mighty things in their lives and in their music. In 2016, they signed with Butler Music Group in Nashville, TN. Soon after that, they began work on a new project, Believe, which is proving to be a breakout album for the group. They partnered with Grammy award winners and Gospel music icons, the Fairfield Four, to record the song, “Bury The Workman.” Much like that song, the entire album highlights the abilities of Sacred Harmony to glean from other genres while making a song their own.
Over the last few years, the trio has been blessed to perform at numerous major events across the US. Download their latest single “Grave Robber” for FREE at http://www.sacreharmony1.com

 

Free Single Download from Master’s Promise.

“Master’s Promise is a young trio comprised of Katelyn Montgomery, originally of Shelbyville, KY; and sisters Rachel and Hannah Sancricca, both born-and raised in the Detroit area. Though only officially founded as a ministry in 2012, the group has shared a stage together for 6 years, creating their unique sound and tight harmony.

In 2014, Master’s Promise was awarded a TOP 5 slot in the Sunrise Award category of SGN Scoops Magazine’s Diamond Awards; and in 2015, they had the high honor of performing the National Anthem for the grand opening of the new U.S. Border Patrol Station in Detroit. This dynamic group has been privileged to worship on countless stages all across the country.

At 19, 20, and 21 years old, the trio has been amply blessed with opportunities to share the Gospel of Christ through their music all across the country. Since their official launch into music evangelism in May of 2012, God has used this unique ministry to bring hundreds of souls to Christ–something the group would be first to say is nothing of their own doing. The only Hope for this generation is Jesus. The Master’s Promise ministry is founded solely on that message.”

Their new album is called “Promise, Choices” and, from it, comes the single “Prepare Ye the Way.” Download it for free at http://www.masterspromise.com

Dell, Susan and Richard Hyssong travel full-time as the award-winning Hyssongs. Their energetic ministry combines family vocal harmony, humor and brass instruments (trumpet and trombone) to delight audiences with their Christ-centered message, shared through the powerful medium of music. The family’s classical music background, along with their harmony and specific chord structures, lend them a unique sound that has made quite an impact on audiences.

The group has been singing together as a family for more than 20 years. In that time, the Hyssongs have received many accolades for their quality, inspirational Southern Gospel sound. The group was awarded the Singing News Fan Award for 2014 Favorite New Trio at the National Quartet Convention, Pigeon Forge, TN. They have consistently placed songs on the Southern Gospel Radio charts. They have had several charting songs, including three Top 10 songs, “I Was Blind, But Now I See” #7, “Lead Me To The Rock” #8 and “Prepare To Be Amazed” #7, and one Top 5 song, “It Doesn’t Get Better Than This” #4 on the Singing News chart. The Hyssongs were the cover story in an the March 2015 Singing News Magazine and have been featured in Christian Voice Magazine several times. Recently they were listed among ten artists by Absolutely Gospel.com as ones to watch in 2015 and voted Top 10 Trio by Singing News Fans.

Review Xtra – Lou Fellingham : This Changes Everything @LouFellingham

lou_fellingham_-_this_changes_everythingLOU FELLINGHAM : This Changes Everything. (Integrity).

Here’s the first single to come from Lou Fellingham’s eagerly awaited live album of the same name. After quietly spoken phrases of “Jesus is alive” and becoming “alive in Jesus,” she launches into a number that sounds as if it’s come straight from Jesus Culture. From my first listen, all I could compare it to was Kim Walker Smith. The song builds well throughout and Lou’s vocals are crisp and clean. Instrumentally, the backing, is fine and the resulting recording obviously goes down well with those gathered. It will be interesting to see what the rest of the album sounds like. 7/10.

Review Xtra – The Collingsworth Family : The Best of…. Volume 2 @C_Fam1

THE COLLINGSWORTH FAMILY The Best of Vol 2THE COLLINGSWORTH FAMILY : The Best of…..Volume 2. (Stow Town Records : STR3172)

Following on from last month’s review of Volume 1, here’s the second release collecting the “Best of” this hard working family group. From the off, once again, it’s the strong harmonies that are the trademark of the Collingsworth Family. “Inhabit the Praise” sets the barre high with terrific vocals. “Light from Heaven” is a bright and happy song, while “he Already See the Rainbow” is a big ballad about letting God help you through the storms of life. As with the first release, there’s a few instrumental tracks thrown in, with the piano taking much of the lead. Of these, I found the closing “My Tribute” to be the best. Mid-album, I found my concentration waning a little, as the songs didn’t seem to be anything special. However, the uptempo “Bottom of the Barrel” lifted my spirits, as it simply raced along. I’m not sure which one of the Collingsworth ladies sings the lead on “I Can Trust Jesus”, but she comes out with a top performance, as she sings “I lean on His will because He know what’s best for me.” “Grandpa” is a sweet little song about days gone by, when true love last forever and promises meant more than they do today. It’s poignant theme certainly gives you food for thought. All in all, it’s another good collection but, perhaps, doesn’t quite reach the heights of its predecessor. 7/10.
