I got the chance to interview Music World Gospel Recording Artist and Season 4 Sunday Best Winner, Amber Bullock. This is one interview that I enjoyed conducting! Her laid back demeanor made it easy to talk to her, it felt like I was catching up with an old friend. In our chat we discuss everything from PJ Morton producing her upcoming album, So In Love, to what it’s like working with Kirk Franklin and Isaac Carree in the studio. Amber also revealed some of her future plans which includes the BET Awards, a tribute to Mary Mary at the Essence Festival and appearing on the King’s Men Tour. But before I give too much away, check out the interview below.
Amber soared to the top of the gospel music charts after capturing the hearts of millions as she topped a talented field of singers to become the 2011, Season 4 winner of BET’s Sunday Best, the #1 rated weekly gospel music competition show. Her debut CD project, Thank You, was released in December, 2011, on Mathew Knowles’ Music World Gospel label. The EP entered at #1 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart. Thank You featured the Top 10 Billboard hit, “Thank You Lord,” a rendition of Walter Hawkins’ anthem as well as other contemporary classic songs.
Bullock, the St. Louis native and single mother of three-year old Amya, is building a diverse fan base with her signature jazz-infused and neo-soul inspired style. Her unique approach to gospel and inspirational music is front and center on her sophomore CD project, So In Love, which will be available in stores and online everywhere on July 10, 2012.
So In Love is produced by PJ Morton for 2PM Music. Bullock describes their musical partnership as a “match made in heaven.” Click here to hear what PJ Morton had to say about working with Amber. The result is ten songs of feel-good inspirational music that ranges in style from neo-soul, to jazz, to contemporary gospel, to reggae, with even a little country thrown in. The songs on the CD highlight Bullock’s incredible vocal range and her unique singing style.
