One of the legends of Gospel Music Bishop Richard “Mr. Clean” White has declared “I’m Glad” his new CD in stores now is the best music he’s ever done; that coming from a man who has penned over 300 songs in his career. The live recording on the Flow Records label hit stores November 6, with its single “I’m Glad I Don’t Look Like What I’ve Been Through” climbing the charts at a steady pace.
The new CD is full of songs that make you get out your seat and Praise the Lord. From the time you put the CD on Bishop White leads listeners through a Praise Party telling you to “Let the Healing Begin”, then he lets you know God is always there “When it Really Counts”, and testifies “I’m Glad I Don’t Look Like What I’ve Been Through.” Bishop White is a great story teller and shows his ability on the heart stirring song “In the Hills,” with a special feature by Crystal Rucker, and goes on to let the Saints know “God’s Got a Blessing For You.” In addition to Crystal Rucker, Bishop White also features guest appearances byDorinda Clark Cole, Myron Williams, and Demarcus Williams.
“I am a preacher first and a Gospel singer and writer second.” Bishop White recently stated in an interview. “I’ve been preaching over 40 years and my songs are just an extension of my sermons. All my songs are sermons with music,” said Bishop White.
A survivor of Triple Bypass Surgery, Gallbladder removal, and a tumor in his head as a child; Bishop White is truly a walking testimony. This powerful CD is the result of all of his prayer and faithfulness over the many years. The anointing can be felt as soon as you hear the first song and continues throughout the CD.
The new project was recorded live at the 2011 Women’s Convention in Dallas, TX, and produced by platinum producer Myron Williams. The president of Flow Records has a long track record of successful projects having worked with people such as Marvin Sapp, T.D. Jakes, Juanita Bynum, Kim Burrell, Micah Stampley, and many others he has the ability to pull the best from those he works with, and ultimately does this with Bishop White.
