Multi Grammy®, Stellar and Dove Award winning gospel recording artist, Israel Houghton teams up, for the first time, with gospel powerhouse Yolanda Adams on his new single, “How Awesome Is Our God”. A powerful declaration rejoicing in God’s love, “How Awesome Is Our God” is the second single from Israel & New Breed’s upcoming new album Covered: Alive in Asia (RGM-New Breed Music/RCA Inspiration), slated for release in March 2015. “How Awesome Is Our God” will be available on all digital music providers beginning Tuesday, January 13.
“In 15 years playing together with New Breed, the song ‘How Awesome Is Our God’ was an incredible experience to perform live and share in God’s love with our audience globally,” said Israel Houghton. “Having Yolanda Adams singing with us on this song marks a personal ‘bucket list’ moment for me!”
The album was recorded during Houghton’s recent tour in Asia before packed crowds in Singapore, Philippines, Indonesia, Jakarta, Japan, Malaysia and South Korea this past October. Covered: Alive in Asia will mark Israel Houghton & New Breed’s 10th album together. Check out Israel & New Breed’s single “How Awesome Is Our God” feat. Yolanda Adams below.
