The Kergyma Community Choir under the direction of founders and leaders Gwendolyn Williams and Arnold Johnson have been on a mission to keep the Gospel choir in the forefront of the Christian music genre. For two decades Kergyma has delivered dynamic presentations of classic hymns, contemporary praise and traditional Gospel that has established the league of singers as one of Gospel music’s most versatile and dynamic choirs.
As an independent artist, Kergyma has consistently built their brand with brilliantly arranged songs and perfected performances which has garnered the group two 2019 Rhythm of Gospel Awards. Their prowess was captured in the Netflix hit series SEVEN SECONDS featuring Russell Hornsby and award-winning actress and director Regina King.
Recognizing the hard work and talent of the choir, Enon Music Group, with distribution partners The Orchard and Sony Music, have partnered with Kergyma to assist the choir in their quest to expand their audience reach and further elevate the presence of choir music. Kergyma releases CHOIR LIFE: THE PRELUDE via Enon Music Group today on all digital music outlets.
Kergyma Director Gwendolyn Williams states:
“This album is musically relevant to the Gospel genre. It is music for your soul. Listeners will feel revived, refreshed and reinvigorated.”
CHOIR LIFE: THE PRELUDE is a 5 song EP of Kergyma’s best work. The album includes their radio hit and rendition of the classic hit “My Mind’s Made Up” written by Darius Brooks and the soulfully crafted “I Do Don’t You” featuring Darnell Williams.
“Kergyma Community Choir does it again as they inject new life into this extraordinary Tommies choir classic,” says Robyn McCullum, WNAP 1110AM Gospel Highway Eleven Radio Music Director. “They masterfully cover ‘My Mind’s Made Up’ introducing a new generation of listeners to this awesome song. I love playing it for our listeners daily.”
“Kergyma is great choir music that has done very well at radio,” states Al Edmondson of Edmondson Communications Radio Promotions. “The feedback that I get from programmers is the listeners love their single ‘My Mind’s Made Up’.”
CHOIR LIFE: THE PRELUDE is produced by composer and musician H. Doobie Powell (Kim Burrell, Le’Andria Johnson, The William Singers, Gene Moore). The EP is also the precursor to their full album that will release in early 2021.
