Seen on the Trinity Broadcast Network’s Praise The Lord, BET’s Bobby Jones Gospel and featured on Jawn Murray‘s compilation CD, Untapped, Gospel singer Madelyn Berry has been making noise in the Gospel music industry for a while now. She’s known for her energetic and pulse-pounding praise and worship song, “You Deserve All Praise. Now she’s making her voice even louder with her upcoming CD called Release The Sound, a live project including guest appearances by Martha Munizzi, Darwin Hobbs, LaRue Howard and Trent Cory. Recognized as a vibrant and dynamic praise and worship leader, Berry is dropping her third project, Release The Sound, on Tuesday, January 15, 2013.
The first track out of the gate is the lead single, “Freedom Today”. One of the many jewels on the forthcoming CD, “Freedom Today” gives believers permission to let go of everything binding them. “Right after we minister this song, you can hear a pin drop,” shares Madelyn. “It’s such a prophetic song; it speaks that our struggles are over. People should know that they can have freedom in their minds, freedom in their finances, freedom in their lives. It’s such a simple song, but it’s a prophetic declaration to God’s people.” The music video of the song will be releasing Tuesday, December 25, 2012, Christmas Day. The video can be viewed on www.MadelynBerry.org.
Release The Sound opens with an introduction from Berry’s former pastor, the late Dr. Zachery Tims. “Since I recorded this project, I lost three people very dear to me,” shares Madelyn. “I lost my Pastor, my grandmother and my vocal coach.” All three were strong ministry supporters of Madelyn. Choosing to turn her tears into triumph, she dedicates the project to all three.
Recorded live at New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, FL, the 16-track CD showcases the musical and spiritual gifts of Berry Tight Recording Artist Madelyn Berry. Produced by Taron Berry, Madelyn’s husband, and Darrius Jamar, the CD and accompanying DVD take listeners from the highs of praise to the reverence of worship. Penned by Madelyn and Taron, the title cut, “Release The Sound” is a hyperactive track which showcases Madelyn’s ability to command praise from the people of God. Famed gospel singer Darwin Hobbs joins Madelyn on the amazing tune, “Sound of a Worshiper” and popular praise and worship leader Martha Munizzi shares the stage with Berry on the beautiful song, “You Are God”.
