Inks Exclusive Deal With Central South Distribution
FREDA BATTLE & THE TEMPLE WORSHIPPERS
Long-Awaited CD How Glorious And Excellent Is Our God
Available In Stores & Online Everywhere June 12
Boston, MA (May 8, 2012)- Worship Leader, Songwriter and Recording Artist Freda Battle has launched her new independent label Peace-O-Mind Music and inked a national distribution deal with leading independent distributor Central South Distribution. Freda Battle & The Temple Worshippers with Friends will release their long-awaited new CD, HOW GLORIOUS AND EXCELLENT IS OUR GOD available in stores and online June 12 via this exclusive partnership. Marketing, promotion and publicity efforts will be handled by the J. Hardy Agency.
Freda Battle & the Temple Worshppers returns to the music scene with their first CD in six years. HOW GLORIOUS AND EXCELLENT IS OUR GOD, which was recorded and streamed live in Boston at Morning Star Baptist Church, where Battle serves as a worship leader proves that she still has more to offer the Gospel music community.
From the high church energy of the title cut “How Glorious & Excellent Is Our God” and the Brazilian infused tune “150 Praises” to the passionate reflection of “His Presence Is Here” and the refreshing latin-flavored praise and worship song “Oh How I Love”, this striking 13-song collection, which features guest appearances from Dove Award-nominated and Stellar Award winning worship artist Stephen Hurd, Rodney Posey, and Bobby Perry (of Bobby Perry & R.A.I.N), is evidence not merely of a collection of great singers, but seasoned ministers.
Other notable songs include “Bless the Name of Jesus”, which is creating quite a buzz among praise and worship teams across the country featuring rising Washington, DC based singer Michael White, who also penned the song. Additionally, a live version of global worship anthem “Here Is Our Praise”, as featured on Battle’s sophomore studio CD HERE IS OUR PRAISE and GMWA: LIVE IN MILWAUKEE CD was recorded.
Vicki Mack Lataillade, who is considered one of the most powerful women in Gospel music and has broken artists such as Kirk Franklin, Kurt Carr and Trin-i-tee 5:7 says, “I have loved Freda Battle since forever! She is the real deal! If you see Freda Battle in her full anointing, you will never be the same!
Freda Battle & the Temple Worshippers are gearing up for promotional stops in support of their forthcoming release throughout the New England and Mid-Atlantic regions beginning in Philadelphia Memorial Day weekend.
