New Music From Ted Winn

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013

Following onTed the heels of God Believes In You and The Lifter, Stellar Award winner Ted Winn makes ready for the release of his new single, You Are The Reason featuring the vocal stylings of his new group, Perspective.

Winn had this to say of the song’s origins: “I wrote, `You Are The Reason’ based on a few things. First, I wanted to express my gratitude and write a song to God. As I reflected on my first solo CD project – Balance, I realized that I mostly write songs that speak directly to people. However, with the first single from my forthcoming project, I wanted to change that up. Second, I wanted to write a song, with what I felt was a simple, clear message and a memorable melody. I wanted the listeners to be able to immediately identify with the song based on their own experience. Third and finally, I wanted to create a universal theme. I believe we can all attest to the fact that God is the reason we live and that we are grateful not only for what He’s done, but the fact that he keeps bringing us through.”

You are the Reason is the second radio single from Kerry Douglas Presents Gospel Mix VI, the new all star compilation hitting stores September 3rd.

Bryan WilsonGOSPELflava offers an advance listen of It Will Happen For Me,  the new single from Bryan Wilson featured on Kerry Douglas Presents Gospel Mix VI being released to digital outlets on August 20th and physically in stores nationwide on September 3rd.

It Will Happen is the advent of a new season in Wilson’s life and ministry.   “I’ve been trying for years to define who I am as an adult artist versus the kid who did all the high notes and runs with the Mississippi Children’s Choir,” Wilson says. “I’m proud of that period of my life and it’s amazing how many gospel and R&B artists tell me their parents made them study that old video of me singing `His Eye is on the Sparrow’ so they could become singers themselves. However, I’m really excited that I’ve been writing my own music and collaborating with other people to create a new sound that represents this season of my life.”

The track is one of twenty songs from Gospel Mix VI which also features music from Ruben Studdard, Zacardi Cortez, Tamela Mann and more.
