Pastor David Wright Gives Us Reasons To Clap Our Hands

Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

DW CYHPastor David Wright perpetuates the Sunday morning church experience with the release of Clap Your Hands, his second installment from the New York Fellowship Mass Choir – Next Generation.  “I am building on the legacy laid by my Dad, Pastor Timothy Wright, when he started the New York Fellowship Mass Choir over 15 years ago.  We want to do all that we can to make sure that the choir sound is kept in tact, as the trend is that people are doing away with choirs and replacing them with praise team and ensembles.  This album shows that the choir is still viable. The title song,  Clap Your Hands is an old call and response song that we used to sing in the church a long time ago that we put a new spin on.”

Clap Your Hands features some of New York’s finest assembled en masse as well as performances from Wright’s own Godfather Records roster.  There are cameo appearances from the incomparable Doobie Powell, Roger Hambrick,  Leon Lacey, Timiney Figueroa Caton, Monique Walker, and Evangelist Rubenstine McClure.

Clap Your Hands is available on all digital outlets.

This is sure to be one of the memorable musical events of 2013.
