*Grammy Award winning Gospel artist Donald Lawrence and his dynamic support ensemble, Co, is returning to shelves with a fabulous project called “YRM: Your Righteous Mind.” Over the last two decades, Lawrence has wowed audiences worldwide with his phenomenal talent and natural ability to get the crowd in the spirit of worship.
YRM’s first single, “Spiritual,” is currently No.13 with a bullet on Billboard’s Hot Gospel Songs chart.
Among the collection’s other highlights are the upbeat mantra “YRM (Your Righteous Mind)” featuring Dorinda Clark Cole and the smooth “We Agree” with Israel Houghton.
The set is a continuum of what Lawrence has been preaching for years. “This project really doesn’t differ from my past ones,” he says. “I want to continue to teach, through song, spiritual principles and laws based on scriptures.”
Donald Lawrence began his career as a music director for R&B legend Stephanie Mills and vocal coach for En Vogue. Then, in the mid 1990s he made headlines as the leader of the Grammy-nominated Tri-City Singers choir that enjoyed a dozen radio hits such as “The Blessing of Abraham,” “The Best Is Yet To Come” and “Encourage Yourself.” In 2004, Lawrence launched a solo career that has included signature songs such as “Back II Eden” and “Healed.”
