This album is not just ‘good gospel music’
Nashville (PRWEB) June 25, 2010
The wait is over for the national release of Darrell Hines Live!, the first, nationally-released, music project of Milwaukee, Wisconsin’s own Bishop Darrell L. Hines. The anointed and dynamic founder of Darrell Hines Ministries (a global ministry anchored by the nearly 6,000 member Christian Faith Fellowship Church [CFFC]), Bishop Hines brings his four decades of composing and singing back to the forefront and offers listeners music that revives the soul, soothes the mind and empowers the spirit.
From the soul-stirring lyrics of “All I Have” (one of the album’s first two singles) and “Worth In Me,” to the upbeat rhythm of “Hold On,” Tracey Artis, Radio Promotions, said that the project has something for everyone. Songs like the second single, “You Brought Me” and “Gethsemane (Not My Will)” acquiesce southern gospel flair while “Heaven (Beulah Land)” is certainly not the Beulah Land of our forefathers. With rich vocals and powerful harmonies, listeners are sure to be drawn in and provided with an uplifting experience. From a chart perspective, Hines is gaining impact weekly with gospel radio.
“This album is not just ‘good gospel music’,” says Bishop Hines, “but music that is life-affirming, life-breathing, and life-reviving.” The ministry of revival and overcoming life’s setbacks were Hines’ motivating forces to record this new album. Darrell Hines has been composing and singing for over 40 years. At 4 years old, he received his first opportunity to perform live when he shared the stage with Mahalia Jackson. From that day forward, Darrell embarked on a musical journey to share his gift with the world. At a young age he and his sister Phoebe toured the country singing at churches and conventions. His parents moved the family to Los Angeles when he was 12 to focus on a music career, which afforded them the opportunity to sing for Bill Cosby's Christmas Party and the Michael Douglas television show. "Music has been in my life, my whole life," stated Hines. After being struck by lightening and laying “dead” for 45 minutes in 1981, Hines was revived with a renewed chance at life and a self-proclaimed mandate to teach others how to give God glory in spite of unexpected tragedy and life circumstances. Darrell Hines Live! achieves this in song.
According to Vicki Mack-Lataillade of Central South Distribution, the driving force of artist development on this project, “I first approached Bishop Hines about doing a solo project in the early ‘90s. Finally the time has come. The Body of Christ is looking for hope and is struggling to stay connected with each other. We believe the musical ministry from Darrell Hines Live! creates an atmosphere which encourages the believer to hold on to each other and find their worth in Christ.”
