Got a group out of Atlanta that I want you guys to know about… Kevin Lemons & Higher Calling have compiled a nice project with solid production and tight vocals.
The vibe is like a good ol’ church service or midnight musical someplace. And that’s refreshing to me. In this musical season, where so much music seems almost created for the sake of crossover or mainstream appeal, it’s cool that artists are still filling the need for a choir that is gonna KILL the vocals and leave folks slain in the aisles.
The choir’s got a little wobble (a la Ricky Dillard’s New G or James Hall’s Worship And Praise) but I love their blend more than anything else.
And the musical help enlisted by Kevin Lemons & Higher Calling is impressive, to say the least– guest leads vocals from Charmaine Swimpson (one of Kirk Franklin’s singers for several years now), rising favorite San Franklin, Sunday Best finalist Zebulon Ellis and background vocalist/developing artist Josiah Martin.
Destined For Greatness (produced by Justin Gilbert and Daniel Moore) is available at most internet retailers, including Amazon.com. You can listen to the single, “Destined For Greatness,” on the PunditPlayer NOW by clicking here.
