Earnest Pugh Issues Challenge: So You Think You Can Dance

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

Psalm 150:4 admonishes us to “praise Him with the timbrel and dance”, and Earnest Pugh has made it his business to bring life to this scripture with the July 8th release of the Top Ten Praise Breaks.Top Ten Praise Breaks

Pugh offered this explanation, “at my live recording for the  “A Worshipper’s Perspective”  CD in 2006 that I saw the power of God move.   I literally had to ask people to take their seats because we knew the cameras were rolling and we wanted to be out of that building at a certain time but it was as though the Holy Spirit refused to leave the room. My music director looked at me and said, `Let God have his way…’ Needless to say the praise break was the highlight of the recording and set the tone for the rest of the recording. From that day forth I vowed to always pause for the cause and render a praise break.”

“This CD will give musicians and worship leaders a tool that can be used when their services shift from worship to praise or vice versa,” says EPM Music Group President Keith Williams.  “The CD will showcase a variety of approaches to the praise break from the West Coast style to the East Coast vibe.”

The Can Do Mentality of Earnest Pugh

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

EarnestPughWhen Earnest Pugh sings the words of scripture as found in Philippians 4:13, it takes on a special meaning for him.  “When I got the call from Michael Matthews about doing the show I was blown away because it’s been eight years since I read a theater script so ( I strongly felt)  my acting skills need work,” Pugh recalls. “He strongly disagreed and insisted that I join the cast of `Aint Too Proud To Beg’.  It was a simple task of just laying claim to the principles of faith.  Pugh made a believer out of himself and won over audiences receiving rave reviews for his performances.   Pugh’s duet with Bishop Rance Allen “All Things Through Christ” (from “The W.I.N. Worship in Nassau Experience”) finds itself in the top 20 of Billboard’s Gospel Songs chart.    “Now, Mike has signed me up for the Broadway-level show he’s launching in the fall. All I can say is: all things through Christ and God has been so good to me.”
