Thursday Thoughts on William Murphy’s You Reign

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

 

Radio has warmly embraced “You Reign”, the first single from GODCHASER, the upcoming Verity debut of William Murphy.    “You Reign” bowed at #22 on the R&R Gospel chart, and at #26 on the Soundscan Digital Genre Gospel Chart.  The single gains momentum charting at #18 on this week’s chart.

Most will recognize Murphy from the 2001 smash hit Praise Is What I Do recorded by Shekinah Glory Ministry.  However, gospel aficionados will remember hearing his soaring vocals on Jesus Is Alive from the Revival In the House CD as well as All Hail the Power from Bishop Clarence McClendon’s Shout Hallelujah CD. William Murphy was also a part of Michael Brooks group The Nation that recorded 2 cds for the CGI label.

Because we like to share, here is You Reign and All Hail the Power and be sure to look for William performing You Reign on BET’s Bobby Jones Gospel on Sunday, December 23rd.

Projects You Might Have Missed:Leanne Faine – Serve The Lord

Friday, May 27th, 2011

You would have to be living in a vacuum to not remember the glory days of Reverend Milton Brunson’s Thompson Community Singers.  Affectionately known as the Tommies and hailing from Chicago, Illinois- the Gospel Music Capital of the World, this choir dominated the charts during the 80s and 90s with multiple hits fronted by masterful musicians and skilled lead vocalists.  Leanne Faine was a huge part of the TCS hit machine(The Holy Ghost, Guess You’re Wondering) and went on to even greater acclaim with regular appearances on the Bobby Jones Gospel Show on BET and touring with Dr. Jones’ Nashville Super Choir ensemble.  With 2solo projects under her belt (the self titled “Leanne” and “Conqueror”), the end of 2010  brought the release of her latest effort Serve the Lord.

Backed by a group of hand picked singers whom she christened Favor, Leanne brings the liquid smoke, lighter fluid and fire to the bar b cue on this project.  Here lies a treasury of gospel standards done “Leanne Faine style”.  The Power Plays include When the Gates Swing Open, Come to my Rescue (yes, the Luther Barnes one), her own cover of  the Tommies’ Just a Prayer Away, a tribute to fellow TCS member Ethel Holloway in the form of He’ll Make it Alright and a contemporary Can I Get a Witness.  The title cut Serve the Lord and He Kept Me round out the disc.  Its unequivocally all Leanne and very nicely done.
