After 18 years as a major label artist and a 5 year hiatus, Darwin returned to the recording studio, and this summer will release his hit single “God Has Remembered,” a song inspired by the miracle of Bethany. A full album is also planned for an Early Spring 2016 release on the couple’s new indy label Heart Art Music.


BMI Hosts Album Release Party To Celebrate Trailblazers Album

Thursday, October 24th, 2013


Piedmont Park in Atlanta, GA will never be the same after the electrifying live performances at the BMI Trailblazers Album Release Party. Gospel’s elite traveled from all angles of the globe to celebrate the release of BMI’s first Trailblazer Gospel Compilation. The album is a collection of the live performances from the 14th annual BMI Trailblazers of Gospel Music Awards Luncheon in Nashville, TN. This year honorees included award winning artist Edwin Hawkins, Tramaine Hawkins, and Kurt Carr.

To celebrate this accomplishment BMI and eOne Music hosted an invitation only album release party. The event was reminiscent of the luncheon, as Gospel’s elite gathered together in an intimate setting to worship and encourage one another. Isaac Carree was on hand to host the event Anyasha Figueroa- Cooper started the evening singing the lead single, “Holy One” accompanied by Donald Lawrence and Company. Jason and Jonathan nelson sang “I Need Your Spirit”, and Lisa Knowles did her rendition of “Oh My Soul Loves Jesus” which sent the place into a worship frenzy.

The BMI staff, under their leader Catherine Brewton had the Park Tavern venue decorated with soft lighting and warm colors. Catherine made it very clear this project was to celebrate Gospel music and its life changing message. She gave honor to Donald Lawrence, DeWayne Woods, and her team for working so diligently on producing this project. BMI plans to release next year’s luncheon as a compilation album as well. All proceeds from this album will go directly back to the composers of the songs.
