The project also features 15 new songs (20 tracks on the project) including the hit singles, “Broken to Minister” and “Call Him By His Name.” The new single, “Forever,” is an up-tempo praise and worship song written by Jason Michael Webb, associate musical conductor for the Tony Award-winning Broadway production Motown The Musical.
