CD Porter has been called by God to exalt the name of the Lord. The Director of Worship Ministry at New Life Anointed Ministries International in Woodbridge, VA, entered the gospel music scene with the release of his lead single, “With One Sound”. The praise and worship anthem was followed by the release of his new single, “You Are My All”. Both cuts are from the brand new project entitled Declaration releasing on Tuesday, May 22, 2012.
The artist held his Pre-release Concert at Vision Community Church in Fredericksburg, VA, on Saturday, May 19th showcasing songs from the new CD. Joined by fellow praise and worship leaders Javon Inman and Michael “Eldridge” Thornton and hosted by Brother Reggie of Rejoice America Radio, the event gave the artist a chance to introduce songs from the project to a waiting and praise-filled audience.
“The Pre-release Event was phenomenal,” recalls CD. “The whole experience was beyond my expectations. Not only was the worship that evening powerful and authentic, but it was also so wonderful to see people from different stages of my ministry worshipping God together on one accord. The whole evening was surreal. For me, the spirit of unity was validation of what I believe God wants to do through this new project.”
Declaration is an amazing collection of upbeat praise and heart-jerking worship. In the role of principle songwriter, Porter takes the lead in formulating a comforting place for the lover of God to bask in His glory. Through the 11 tracks, this gifted psalmist takes us from handclapping to hands lifted using a variety of contemporary musical styles.
“With One Sound” is a praise and worship-flavored, musical feast. Focusing on unity in the body of Christ, the song is the perfect opener for Sunday morning. Undoubtedly one of this release’s strongest songs, “You Are My All” showcases the vocal talents of CD Porter. It’s an R&B-flavored tune accented with beautiful, crisp harmonies. The song’s message speaks of the importance of God to the singer. Other memorable cuts include the pretty “Secret Place”, the high octane, danceable “So Good”, and the unforgettable “When I Worship”. The full project is currently available on iTunes.
A resident of Stafford, VA, CD felt the call to music ministry at the age of twelve. Since that time, Porter has honed his craft, developing his talents and gifts to edify the body of Christ. An anointed singer, songwriter, musician, and producer, Porter serves as Director of Worship Ministry at the New Life Anointed Ministries International in Woodbridge, VA. He dropped his debut record, Work In Progress, in 2007.
A true worshiper, CD Porter says worship is crucial to lovers of Christ. “Worship is essential to the believer,” shares CD. “It’s not only our time to commune with God and hear the heart of God, but it’s our chance to reveal our heart to Him. It’s our time to come to Him, purely submitted, bowing and bending our will to His.” More information about CD Porter can be found at www.CDPorterMusic.com.
