*Acclaimed artist Regina Belle is getting ready to release her ninth album and second gospel project, “Higher.”
Available in stores on June 5, the album is now accessible online at various Internet stores for only $9.99.
“Higher,” which has already reached the Top 20 on the gospel radio charts, is a project that pulls on the heartstrings of listeners, sending them into a place of praise, joy, and thankfulness.
In 2009, following the release of her last album, “Love Forever Shines,” Belle was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which not only threatened her career, but her life. However, she made a full recovery and attributes this to God’s love and mercy, as well as her faith, which she had to remember to hold steadfastly to.
Appearances on the album include Pastor Shirley Caesar, Kathy Taylor, and Lowell Pye.
Belle hopes to convey a simple but powerful message. “I pray that each listener has an experience. My whole objective in doing this record is to bring people into the presence of God,” she says.
*Four years after releasing his debut album, Tré Thomas is ready to get back out there and show the world what he’s working with. On March 20, get ready to be inspired with his newest project, “Finally.”
The Gospel crooner has something extra special for fans this time around, vowing to give them more of the smooth and sensuous sounds that have earned the respect of industry powerhouses like Richard Smallwood, Dr. Bobby Jones and others, but also a deeper look into his personal thoughts and emotions. His new single, named after the album, is already brewing excitement.
“My fans should expect to hear my growth on the album—vocally, lyrically and emotionally,” he said. “New listeners will hear the purity of my heart through the music. I really want everyone to take away the message that it’s necessary to get back to a place of love—loving ourselves, each other and God.”
