Matthew Ward

Doing a new arrangement of Easter Song was a bit daunting. Our drummer years ago probably said it best: 'Doing a new arrangement of Easter Song, was like putting chrome on the Ark of the Covenant'

Monument, CO (PRWEB) April 1, 2011

Celebrating 40 years in music, pioneering christian artist Matthew Ward announced today he will release 'Easter Song - A New Arrangement' via his Matthew Ward Ministry website on April 01.

Recognized for his signature tenor voice and known to millions of Christians worldwide, Matthew Ward is considered one of the great vocalists of any musical genre. At the young age of 13, Ward recorded his first solo track "Jesus Is" while a member of the Gospel Music Hall of Fame group '2nd Chapter of Acts' along with his two sisters, Annie Herring and Nelly (Ward) Greisen.

When initially composed in 1974 by Annie, 'Easter Song' was envisioned as a possible choral arrangement. However, after much consideration and prayer, Easter Song was recorded by Ward and his sisters and the rest, as they say, is history. Reflecting on the new arrangement of the classic, Ward shares, "Doing a new arrangement of Easter Song was a bit daunting. Our drummer years ago probably said it best: 'Doing a new arrangement of Easter Song, was like putting chrome on the Ark of the Covenant.'" Easter Song has been covered by artists such as the late Keith Green and the group GLAD. 'Easter Song - A New Arrangement' is a powerful and refreshing reminder that Jesus truly has risen, just as He said!

'Easter Song - A New Arrangement' will be available as a digital release on Matthew Ward's web page as well as CD Baby and other fine digital outlets.
