New Haven, CT — The Connecticut based Kergyma Community Choir has been singing together for almost twenty years. Founders and leaders Gwendolyn Williams and Arnold Johnson have taken the choir from their community status to being known as a nationally recognized group, and award-winning choir. Their unfailing charismatic delivery of sacred music continues to elevate their identity with Gospel music fans and respect among peers in the industry.
Now signed to Philadelphia based record label Enon Music Group (EMG), and following the success of their radio single “Fill This Place” (ft Myron Williams), Kergyma has released a second radio single. The dynamic choir has put their spin on the classic hit “My Mind’s Made Up” written by Darius Brooks. “My Mind’s Made Up” is pushing its way up the radio charts and is available on all digital music outlets now.
Kergyma’s first album THE PROCLAMATION was released independently in 2014. With the EMG team and distribution through The Orchard / Sony Music, they are now gearing up for their sophomore album release CHOIR LIFE this fall.
“I’ve known Arnold and his choir for over 15 years. They consistently deliver great music with power, authenticity, and integrity,” says Benita Bellamy Kelley with The Bellamy Group. “I’m thrilled to be able to work marketing for their CHOIR LIFE album through Enon Music Group. Our team, including radio promoter Al Edmondson of Edmondson Communications, loves working projects like this that come from a group who work selflessly to minister to people and are exemplary artists in the Gospel music industry.”
CHOIR LIFE represents the group’s mission to keep Gospel choir music relevant and at the forefront of the Christian music industry. The album is produced by acclaimed musician H. Doobie Powell who has been an arranger, composer, musician, and producer to artists Kim Burrell, Le’Andria Johnson, The William Singers, Gene Moore, and many others.
Producer H. Doobie Powell states: “It’s a blessing to be working with two of my good friends (Arnold and Gwendolyn) and their amazing choir! I’m so honored that they have entrusted me with this album. These are some of the easiest people I’ve ever worked with in this music industry, and I pray that the whole world is blessed by what God has allowed us to put together!”
