Tekesha Russell Sings of Wondrous Things on Debut CD

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

LeChateau Earl Records annTR Coverounces the  digital release of Wondrous Things, the debut release of singer/songwriter and worshiper Tekesha Russell.  Wondrous Things is the fourth release from the label, which was founded by  celebrated producer and recording artist Damien Sneed and noted pastor, preacher, evangelist and author Bishop Iona Locke. 

“Tekesha is a modern-day David”, exclaims Bishop Locke. This project is a compilation of thoughts and conversations with God, as well as observations about the world around her. Wondrous Things has a sound of its own, unlike anything that we have heard in gospel music. The uniqueness of this worship album takes us into the heart and mind of Russell, a gifted songwriter and an amazingly skilled vocalist. The single and title track exclaims how God only does wondrous things. “I’m really excited about seeing God’s promises fulfilled in this CD,” says Russell. “I was able to realize a dream of not just singing but composing and actually seeing my writing published. For a first project, this was a good marriage of composition and musicianship. I actually get to bring maximum glory to God.”  Look for Wondrous Things at CDBaby, Amazon and iTunes.
