The most dynamic choir to hit the gospel stage in a while, Vincent Tharpe & Kenosis, is releasing its new CD “Live in Memphis” this Tuesday, October 30, 2012. The Memphis ensemble’s EPM Music Group project will be in stores everywhere and available on all online music stores such as iTunes and Amazon mp3. Their radio single, “Thank You, Lord” is also beginning to make serious noise on gospel airwaves with new radio station pickups such as WEAM in Georgia, WBBP in Tennessee and WLOU in Kentucky.
Tharpe received the inspiration to launch his own group when he was the director of the Voices of Harambee, a gospel choir at Craigmont High School in Memphis. He took the word Kenosis from Philippians 2:5-8 (a Biblical scripture) in which Jesus Christ emptied himself of his divine attributes in order to identify with mankind.
The group has recorded a couple of indie CDs and won a Rhythm of Gospel Award as New Artist of the Year in 2010. They also won Dorinda Clark Cole’s Singers & Musicians Conference Artist Showcase Competition in 2011 and they have appeared on BET’s legendary, “Bobby Jones Gospel” TV program.
