Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs CDs (2004) Top Seller
WOW Gospel 2005 songs Donnie McClurkin certainly possesses a deep well of Christian devotion, not to mention a mighty, rumbling voice. On PSALMS, HYMNS & SPIRITUAL SONGS, the pastor/singer is joined by nearly 6,000 people packed inside Virginia's Rock Church. The energy of this rapt crowd is evident during the celebratory concert captured on this aptly named double-album.
The first disc of PSALMS, HYMNS & SPIRITUAL SONGS is straightforward, as McClurkin treads in traditional gospel fashion, singing standards and beautiful self-penned songs of praise (including the rousing "I Will Sing") to the crowd's relentless pleasure. The second disc unfolds a bit more unpredictably, as McClurkin breaks into impromptu medleys and leads a playful discussion about spreading the gospel to the world. In addition to multilingual songs, he gives an open-minded sermon of Christianity and tolerance. An added bonus on PSALMS, HYMNS & SPIRITUAL SONGS is a duet with gospel icon Kirk Franklin on the timeless secular song of hope, "Ooh Child."

Somethin' 'Bout Love CD (2004)
WOW Gospel 2005 buy CD music Detroit vocalist Fred Hammond has danced skillfully on that gloriously blurred line between gospel and sweet soul music for decades, whether solo or with his group Commissioned. Hammond's knack for letting the spirit resound in his vocals has earned him a well-deserved following. The energetic SOMETHIN' 'BOUT LOVE adds to his catalogue of energetic records with a slate of inspired, groove-laden odes to salvation.
Hammond is also a skillful songwriter, co-penning most of the album's tunes, including the deft, intricate single "Celebrate (He Lives)." Brian McKnight and Marvin L. Winans join him for a lustrous trio on the undeniably catchy "Lord We Need Your Love." Hammond's closest musical cousin in the secular world is Stevie Wonder, a connection accentuated when he ably covers Wonder's "Love's in Need." Hammond's records craftily interweave R&B and inspirational music, and SOMETHIN' 'BOUT LOVE continues that tradition.

I Speak Life CD (2004) Top Seller
WOW Gospel 2005 album for sale Donald Lawrence opens I SPEAK LIFE, his first record without the Tri-City Singers, with "Healed," a song where he delivers, in the most welcoming and relaxed tone, a universal sermon of finding recovery in a return to salvation. In the middle of the song, Lawrence unguardedly remarks "I like this part." It's that sense of openness that permeates the album, embodying the joy that makes Lawrence's gospel so markedly appealing.
This particular sense of joy has attracted, in addition to a legion of fans, many leading lights from both the inspirational and secular musical worlds to collaborate with Lawrence here. Like-minded preacher Hezekiah Walker joins Lawrence on a self-proclaimed "simple song," the funk-infused "You Covered Me." Faith Evans provides most of the vocals on the light R&B ballad "Say a Prayer," and Carl Thomas offers a more rousing presence on the hip-hop-flecked "Angels." Elsewhere, jazz notable Ramsey Lewis and R&B singer Lalah Hathaway present a lush interpretation of the skillful Lawrence composition "Don't Forget to Remember." Through it all, Lawrence pops in with observations and gospel, always earnest, always passionate, always speaking with the voice of a soul constantly seeking, yet ever at rest.

|WOW Gospel 2003 CDs (2003)
WOW Gospel 2005 CD music World events in the first years of the new millennium prompted many people to re-evaluate life's purpose and the individual's place in the universe. Perhaps not so coincidentally, gospel music continued to find ever-greater acceptance among mainstream music listeners. For the uninitiated, however, the sheer variety and volume of faith-based music can be extremely daunting. That's where the Platinum-selling WOW GOSPEL series comes in. WOW GOSPEL 2003, like its predecessors, features upbeat, exciting performances from the cream of the contemporary gospel crop, and makes for a comprehensive and highly enjoyable introduction to the genre. Though the collection primarily traffics in the heavily '80s funk/R&B-influenced sound that is contemporary gospel's stock in trade, there are a few nods to old-time religion. The double-disc set includes exemplary performances from legends like the Five Blind Boys Of Alabama (who turn in a stirring version of the Curtis Mayfield standard "People Get Ready"), Shirley Caesar, and The Rance Allen Group, one of the very first combos to combine rock and soul with traditional spirituals. Most of the time, however, it's just a party, as one belter after another feels the spirit and testifies to the truth of faith's healing power.

|WOW Gospel 2004 CDs (2004)
WOW Gospel 2005 buy CD music Due to its consistently best-selling status, the WOW series has become synonymous with cutting-edge hit gospel and Christian music. WOW GOSPEL 2004 is no different, and opens appropriately enough with "Brighter Day," a gloriously booty-shaking live track from Kirk Franklin, the man perhaps most responsible for bringing contemporary gospel to mainstream R&B audiences. Many other definitive modern acts are also here, including Hezekiah Walker, who turns in the stirring and anthemic ballad "I Need You to Survive," and the Reverend John P. Kee, who gets back to basics with the foot-stomping "I Won't Let Go." One of the best performances on the set, however, comes from relative newcomer Smokie Norful, who sounds at times like that other great flammably sobriqueted soul man, Smokey Robinson. Unlike some forms of religious music, the tracks here are marked by a level of energy and excitement equal to, or greater than, anything in the secular world. Those wishing to sample some of the most exciting and passionate gospel music of 2004 need look no further than the heavenly sounds of this WOW GOSPEL edition.
