International and celebrated Choir Director Chantel R. Wright’s Pneumatica joins the annual Thomas Dorsey National Convention of Gospel Choirs and Choruses from Sunday, August 3 through Sunday, August 11 at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center. The nine-member inspired youth-ensemble will perform selections from the group’s debut CD, Chantel R. Wright Presents Pneumatica: All We Need.
With a full-week of promotional activities, Pneumatica will open the worship service at the national convention on Sunday, August 3; on Wednesday, August 7, group member Orson Benjamin will lead the Morning Glory service, along with the ensemble; and on Friday, August 9, the group will join Bishop Wright for the evening worship service at 7:00 p.m. at the Christ Centered Assembly Holy Convocation in Southfield, Michigan.
Pnematica’s new single, “The One Who Endures,” was recently released to Gospel radio. Led by group member Nia Gaines-Greenwood featuring Wright, the song is reminiscent of The O’Jays’ classic “Family Reunion.”
Wright, along with group member Benjamin, co-wrote the songs on All We Need, which is available on iTunes and Amazon, and other digital music platforms worldwide. Released on LeChateau Earl Records, by label owners Damien L. Sneed and Detroit’s Bishop Iona Locke, the ensemble includes Wright, Gaines-Greenwood, Orson Benjamin, Richard Sullivan, Jr., Yeshak A. Pellot, Yvette Benjamin, Alicia J. Etienne, Jamar Johnson, and Faith Smith.
