RCA Inspiration is set to release REVEREND FLOYD FLAKE PRESENTS THE WORSHIP EXPERIENCE, which offers an outstanding collection of songs recorded by Greater Allen Cathedral. The CD is currently available for presale at Amazon.com and iTunes, and will be in stores March 19.
The project features a beautiful cover of Walter Hawkins’ “Jesus Christ is the Way” with lead vocals by Delores Bowman; an unforgettable rendition of “Psalm 63” with lead vocals by Reverend Darius Thomas and “Be Glorified,” a soaring up tempo with lead vocals by Linwood Smith Jr.
The first single off of REVEREND FLOYD FLAKE PRESENTS THE WORSHIP EXPERIENCE is “Greater” featuring Michael Pugh, who was a Top-5 finalist on the 4th season of BET’s Sunday Best. “Greater” is an upbeat Sunday morning anthem that will carry listeners through the entire week optimistic and encouraged and, this week, is the #1 most added song at Gospel radio.
“Gospel music provides a sense of hope and a feeling of direct contact and relationship with God because, for the most part, the music is focused on biblical interpretation and therefore helps to give people a feeling of goodness about what God is doing in their life,” says Reverend Floyd Flake. “God has blessed us [at Greater Allen] to have so many creative people and they all used the maximum of their talent to ensure that they gave their very best to this project. Every song speaks to something and someone, and that makes me very proud of this CD,” says Flake.
Greater Allen Cathedral is an outgrowth of the Allen A.M.E. Church, founded in the Jamaica community in 1834. With over 18,000 members, Greater Allen Cathedral boasts one of the largest congregations in the country, and its music ministry consistently offers the very best in contemporary praise and worship.
