LeChateau Earl Records announced the release of God Bless America, an arrangement of the American classic by Damien Sneed and Chorale LeChateau featuring Chenee Campbell.
Sneed had this to say of the release of the single. “It feels as if our nation is under siege. Senseless gun violence plagues our inner city neighborhoods with no regard for the lives of the innocent. Fires, floods, tornadoes, continually test us – our hope and faith are daily diminished. If there was ever a time that we needed to join together in continual prayers for our nation, that time is now. It is our hope that hearing this arrangement of God Bless America will draw us to prayer.”
Chorale Le Chateau is developing a remarkable reputation for its vivid interpretations of vocal literature, from Renaissance period pieces to jazz, spirituals, gospel, and avant garde contemporary music. This musical ensemble will join legendary jazz trumpeter Wynton Marsalis for a multi-city tour of the Abyssinian Mass.
The “God Bless America” release is one of several projects from Le Chateau Earl Records. In June, the label will release, Spiritual Sketches, another eagerly awaited project featuring the lead single “All Night, All Day” by Sneed and world-renowned tenor Lawrence Brownlee. In addition, a live recording from Damien Sneed featuring The Levites is scheduled for the summer as well as the album debut of newcomer Tekesha Russell.]]>
