It’s been 10 years since the Mississippi Mass Choir released new music, and radio is quickly catching on. Just a month after being served up to programmers, the choir’s new single, “The Promise,” is at No. 23 on Billboard’s Gospel Radio chart and No. 29 on Mediabase.
Jackson, MS – May 12, 2023
Still on the same project, Jerry Mannery, who co-wrote the song and the Mississippi Mass executive director has this to say.
“We are ecstatic about the response to ‘The Promise.’ After a decade away from recording, we knew God was calling us to release new music. This song is an extension of Mississippi Mass Choir’s roots: 200 voices lifted in harmony with a fresh sound and renewed energy, reminding people that the promises of God are still yes and amen.”
Stan Jones, who also produced “The Promise” and was the lead singer and Co-writer also commented about the recent song.
“This is 100% a song of faith,” says Jones. “Even in the midst of the enormous chaos and confusion going on around us, we have to hold on to the promises of God.”
Myron Butler, a great feature on the sound, says the song is ‘a powerful anthem for the world right now, put forth by a powerful, historic ensemble.’ “I am proud to be a part of this moment in Mississippi Mass history,” he added.
“The Promise” was part of a live recording by the Mississippi Mass Choir at Word of Life Church in Flowood, MS, which also featured special guests Tina Campbell, Brian Courtney Wilson, Crystal Aikin, Reverend Milton Biggham and Paul Porter. This project, “We Still Believe,” will be released later this year and will be the Mississippi Mass Choir’s 11th album.
Currently celebrating 34 years of “serving God through song,” the Mississippi Mass Choir has received numerous accolades, including three Grammy Award nominations, 12 Stellar Gospel Music Awards – including Thomas A. Dorsey Notable Achievement Awards, induction into the Mississippi Music Museum Hall of Fame, Billboard Gospel Artist of the Year and Gospel Record of the Year, Soul Train Music Award and countless other accolades. They spread the Gospel with their song on international stages in Japan, Italy, Spain, Portugal, France, the Bahamas, South Africa, the Canary Islands and Greece, where they were the first Gospel group to perform at the historic Acropolis in Athens.
