Kristle Murden burst onto the gospel music scene with I’ll Be Thinking of You on Andrae Crouch’s 1981 Dreaming LP on Light Records. The smash hit garnered Kristle her very own solo project, I Can’t Let Go. After its initial release, the album set in the Light Records vaults for over 20 years. I am pleased to report that the album in its entirety is now available on Itunes and Amazon.com for mp3 downloads. Congrats to the Light Records team for finally giving us this one, I do have a list of a couple others that need reissuing if someone would only TALK TO ME.

Anita Wilson has spent the last few years backing a venerable list of who’s who in the gospel industry including Hezekiah Walker, Marvin Sapp, DeWayne Woods and Vanessa Bell Armstrong.
