Multiple Stellar Award nominated Washington, D.C. based group Charles Butler & Trinity releases their third project THE BLOOD EXPERIENCE (Anointed Sounds Records) today, available on all digital outlets. The 10-track project is produced by Butler, Brandon Maclin and James “Jimmy” Johnson.
The group’s lead single “I Know It Was The Blood” – a fresh, melodic anthem that showcases Charles Butler’s signature sound of fusing both traditional and contemporary styling is gaining traction at Gospel radio. All proceeds from downloads from the single will go towards the Charles Butler and Trinity Hurricane Harvey Relief.
After the group’s latest project, Make It, that garnered two Stellar Award nominations, Butler made the decision to no longer encourage people to MAKE IT and not make it himself. Charles made the decision to lose weight and partnered with Radio One DC along with DeCalo Weight Loss, Wellness, and Pain Management Clinic in an effort to lose over 200lbs in a campaign encouraging others to make it. After 3 months Butler has lost nearly 70lbs and is successfully moving toward reaching his goal through his lifestyle change, diet, and exercise all while maintaining a tedious travel schedule.
The group appeared on Get Up Mornings! with Erica Campbell, Good Day DC and hosted an on-aire listening session on Praise DC’s 104.1FM this week with upcoming appearances on Heaven 600 and Praise 107.9 Sound of Praise w/ Maurette Brown Clark (Fri., Sept 8) today.
The group will host their album release concert tonight at First Baptist Church of Highland Park, located at 6801 Sheriff Road, Hyattsville, MD.The event is FREE and starts at 7:30pm. Special guests include Sam Roberts and The Levites Assembly and Vincent Bohanan & The Sound of Victory and hosted by Stellar Award winner J.J. Hairston*8.
