The bay area has birthed a juggernaut of secular and gospel music culture that includes the likes of Journey, Santana, Sly and The Family Stone, Keyshia Cole, and the legendary Hawkins fami- ly. We can now add Joe Douglass and Spirit of Praise to that long list of impactful artists who are making waves in the current musical landscape.
Joe Douglass and Spirit of Praise are no strangers to the industry, assembling in 2011 and making their nationwide debut in 2014, their debut album The Great I Am, peaked at #4 on the Billboard gospel chart and featured Grammy® Award winner Tye Tribbett, Lena Byrd-Miles and Chrystal Rucker. Their latest single, Praise Him featuring Shelene Huey-Booker, is a mid-tempo radio friendly hit that gives us a familiar reminder to praise the Lord every time we get the chance. The catchy bass driven chorus admonishes, “Everybody clap your hands, Everybody pat your feet, Everybody wave your hands, Everybody say Amen.”
Just in time for the Christmas holiday, Praise Him is sure to make a huge impact on radio and streaming services alike upon its release at the top of the month, as it is a sound that has been missing from today’s Top 20 gospel radio format.
