Under the Jurisdictional leadership of Bishop Jerry L. Maynard, The Tennessee 4th Mass Choir are set to release their sophomore project EXCITEMENT OF PRAISE (Jelama Media Group) on Friday, November 10th in-stores and on all digital outlets. Recorded live in Memphis, TN, the project is truly a labor of love for Bishop Maynard’s label, Jelama Records.
The forthcoming album features Derrick ‘The Maestro’ Jackson on keys, powerhouse soloists Carla Tolbert Taylor and Kathy Taylor, and laces in the smooth vocals of the late Shea Norman. Bridging the contemporary praise and worship rhythms of today’s music with songs such as “The Report” and “Great God” with the traditional anointing of old-time church found in the tune “Thank You Jesus,” it serves as a solid reminder of God’s grace, goodness, and love for all those who take a listen.
The choir’s lead single “God’s Been So Good to Me” jumps +46 spots (+119 spins) to impact the Top 30 on Mediabase Gospel Airplay chart at No.29. The single lands at No.2 on the BDS Monitored New & Active chart, No. 34 on Billboard’s Gospel Airplay chart and on BDS Most Added and Most Increased Airplay charts this week. The single was named the quick pick of the week on the Nationally syndicated The Willie Moore Jr Show last week.
