As a Spanish teacher in a former life, i admit it - I have a definite interest in the emergence of good contemporary Christian music in other languages, especially Spanish. This time it is Warner Alliance that has come forward with two great offerings for
the Spanish market.
The first project is Solo a El (Only to Him), a Spanish-language
collection by El Coro de Brooklyn (The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir) that has been released to both
the Christian and mainstream markets by Warner Alliance as well as international markets. Designed to carry the ministry of the Brooklyn Tabernacle Church and its world-renowned choir to a much wider international audience, this release by El Coro, an offshoot of the choir, also gives Warner Alliance an immediate presence in the burgeoning Hispanic market.
Also coming out is Por
Fe, the Spanish-language version of the best-selling and critically acclaimed By Faith
project of Kim Boyce. Boyce, whose records have long been popular in Mexico despite the language
barrier, is entering the Spanish-speaking marketplace this month. The album will be released in Mexico and Puerto Rico and in Spanish-speaking U.S. markets.
