Lindenwold, NJ: David G. Evans’ Abundant Harvest Entertainment is continuing to break new ground for gospel music. The label is now servicing a new single by Lonnie Hunter, a former soloist for the U.S. Air Force Jazz Band and a celebrated gospel choir conductor. He’s best known for his 2003 hit “Let’s Dance” with the Voices of St. Mark Choir. Now, the syndicated radio host is back with another rousing church chant, “Do Something” that is being serviced to gospel radio formats. The song is featured on the best-selling Bishop David G. Evans Presents Automatic Praise! Live CD.
Another song that will soon land on the desk of radio executives is veteran vocalist Shea Norman’s silky soul track, “The One.” The faith-inspired love song is destined to become a wedding or anniversary anthem. The Memphis native has performed with Fred Hammond and Dottie Peoples but is best known for his 2004 rendition of “Tis So Sweet.” This song emerges from the David G. Evans’ Pure Love CD of romantic Christian –inspired love songs. “Love is not just physical and emotional,” Evans says. “There is certainly a spiritual quality when it is right between two people. Much of what we hear on the radio today is not that kind of spiritual love. Real love, pure love, looks for the best and wants the best for those we love. It is time for music that speaks to our romantic interests without distorting the true meaning of love. That’s what Pure Love is all about.”
David G. Evans is pastor of the 27,000-member Bethany Baptist Church in Lindenwold, NJ. He has a long history in music and was a co-founder of Sweet Rain Records – the label that first recorded Grammy winner Hezekiah Walker. His CD Healed Without Scars reached #15 on Billboard Top Gospel Albums chart and the 2009 Pure Love CD hit the Top 30 on the same survey. His various CDs have yielded the radio hits “This Joy,” “Change Me” and “Why Should I Be Bound?” Visit www.davidgevans.com for more information.
