Teresa Hairston (founder of Gospel Today Magazine) has produced her third live CD called G3 Praise and Worship III from her highly successful annual Gospel Heritage Praise and Worship conference. These inspiring praise and worship CDs featuring various artists help to preserve the legacy and perpetuate the heritage of gospel music.
This project contains 11 powerful tracks that showcase elite praise and worship leaders in the gospel music industry such as Stephen Hurd, Lecresia Campbell and Martha Munizzi. The group DeWayne Woods and When Singers Meet provide strong background harmony vocals on this project. Donald Lawrence is the producer and Teresa Hairston is the executive producer.
G3 Praise and Worship III opens with the upbeat cut, Todah sung by the worship leader himself, Stephen Hurd. This song admonishes us with worshipful lyrics to lift our hands as sacrifice of praise.
Rodney Posey uses his powerful vocals in the song, El Shaddai. The song declares that we should praise God and lift Him name on High. You will not be able to resist clapping your hands and stomping your feet to the joyful sound.
Expecting A Harvest track has an upbeat tempo led by the strong vocals of Rasean Buckley . It’s a song about anticipating the rain in your life that will bring a harvest of blessings.
There are two parts to the slow-paced Safety. There is a powerful anointing in Part 1 led by the incredible vocals of Lecresia Campbell. The song talks about the safety we have in the Lord. In Part 2, Juandolyn Stokes gives powerful words of exhortation that say despite everything in your life, you are in the safety of the Lord.
Donald Lawrence leads his classic hit cut Best Thing that Ever Happened to Me in two parts. In Part 1, you can’t help but to bob your head to the jazzy tempo of the song. Lawrence gives us a Chicago flavor of the song in Part 2.
Living Water is a slow paced track lead by the soothing voice of Kristine Sofo. You will find yourself raising your hands in a posture of worship. The message on this track speaks about quenching our thirst with living water.
