Stay Connected Lands In Billboard Top 5
Reverend Dr. Otis Moss, III and the choirs of Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ began the new year with a declaration of God is Good. That sentiment has captured the hearts of many as Stay Connected, their 2 disc CD made its debut at number 5 on the Billboard Top Gospel Albums Chart.
“This is without question a God thing”, says Bryan Johnson, Director of Sacred Music and overseer of the 400 plus singers, dancers and musicians that make up Trinity’s worship arts department. “God is good is not just a song that Kevon Carter wrote and we sing, its our testimony that we live every day. Our goal was to give the audience a heaping portion of the worship experience we have every Sunday during our 3 services. We had no idea it would evolve into 28 tracks, but we purposed to give God our very best. With masterful production from A. Jeffrey LaValley and Plu Harmon, Stay Connected sends a message that not only speaks about the gospel of Jesus Christ, but also delivers a universal message of love, inspiration, and hope,” Rev. Moss echoes those sentiments, “This project was conceived as homage to the deep African American roots of Gospel Music, seeking to show the strong connection to African and Afro-Brazilian Sacred Music traditions. I am incredibly proud of the journey we are able to take the listener through.”
Stay Connected is available at iTunes, Amazon and other digital outlets.
