Internationally Acclaimed Chicago Mass Choir’s New Single “I Give You Praise Lord” Released

Follows Up Their Top-Charting Single, “Thank You Thank You Jesus”



For Immediate Release: 

NASHVILLE, TN—Ken Harding, president of New Haven Records, recently announced the debut of “I Give You Praise Lord”, the second single from Chicago Mass Choir’s recently released CD, We Give You Praise.

Says Harding, “This may be the best album in Chicago Mass Choir’s 25 year history. The first single, “Thank You Thank You Jesus,” helped the CD debut at the #1 spot on Amazon Best Seller’s Gospel Praise and Worship Chart and #11 on the Amazon Gospel Music Best Seller’s Sales Chart. We’re particularly excited about the future of the new single, “I Give You Praise Lord,” because it’s the kind of worship song that can find its way into churches all across America…and the world!”

Dr. Feranda Williamson, the choir’s president, couldn’t be more pleased, “It is such a humbling experience to see how our new project has been supported around the world!  “I Give You Praise Lord” summarizes our gratitude for God’s continued blessings!”

In contrast to the rousing, high-energy sound of the first single, “I Give You Praise Lord” is a passionate, mid-tempo praise and worship anthem that builds to a stirring crescendo. Featuring vocals by co-producer Percy Gray, Jr., the song is already Chicago Mass Choirs’ second most popular iTunes download from this project, building anticipation for its national radio debut.

New Haven Records will also be launching both lyric and live performance video clips for “I Give You Praise Lord.” The debut single has already generated more than 400,000 YouTube views—adding to the more than 20 million views for other chart-topping hits like “Holy Ghost Power,” “I Pray We’ll Be Ready,” “Mighty Good God,” and “God is My Everything.”

Sonya Blakey, PD of WGRB Chicago iHeartMedia states, “Chicago Mass delivers a refreshing and exhilarating song of praise! The message and music evokes you to lift your hands and sing along.”

Pam D., Music Director for Praise 100.7 remarks, “Chicago Mass Choir never ceases to amaze me. If you’re looking for that song that will usher you into God’s presence, ‘I Give You Praise’ is it! It’s contagious straight-up pure praise and worship.”

Harding concludes, “This is one of the greatest songs I’ve ever heard. I can’t wait for the world to hear ‘I Give You Praise Lord.’ Chicago Mass Choir’s songs have been inspiring fans for years. I believe will be their biggest career triumph.”

We Give You Praise is available at Walmart, Family Christian, LifeWay Christian and other gospel retail outlets as well as iTunes, and Amazon.
