Shirley Caesar Releases HYMNS

11-time Grammy Award winning artist Pastor Shirley Caesar will release her 36th album, titled Hymns, on Word Records this October 30.
This highly anticipated release, produced by Grammy and Dove Award winner and long-time friend Bubba Smith, encompasses the traditional hymn with an exciting Caesar-style vocal twist. Tunes included on the album include “Steal Away To Jesus,” “Amazing Grace,” “There Is Power In The Blood,” and “Holy, Holy, Holy” among other of the same stellar likes.
In an effort to bridge the gap between secular and gospel music Destiny’s Child Michelle Williams, who is no stranger to gospel music, appears on “Steal Away To Jesus”, making this an incredible remake that is sure to please all audiences. “I really enjoyed the fellowship Michelle and I shared,” says Caesar. Besides the fact that I’m a traditional gospel artist and I had a chance to sing with a member of the hottest R& B group Destiny’s Child. We had a lot to talk about. It was truly a wonderful experience.
Winner of eleven Grammy Awards, Caesar has appeared on nearly 40 albums and videos since 1966, several of which achieved Gold sales status. Caesar has garnered 18 Dove awards, a total of 17 Grammy nominations, and many other kudos, rightfully earning her title “First Lady of Gospel Music.” She has had three sold-out runs on Broadway, and has also been involved with four major motion picture soundtracks: Whitney Houston’s The Preacher’s Wife, Dreamwork’s The prince of Egypt, Warner Brother’s Why Do Fools Fall In Love, and the John Singleton film Rosewood.
Most recently Caesar was honored by President George W. Bush at The White House. She garnered recognition for Black Music Month’s Legend Honoree along with Dr. Bobby Jones, Nancy Wilson, Loinel Hampton and Lena Horne.
From September to November 19, 2001 Caesar will travel with Yolonda Adams, Mary Mary, and Virtue for the Sisters In The Spirit Tour where she will headline and premiere music from her upcoming Hymns release.
Hymns is the 17th title Caesar has recorded for Word Records in her 21 year career with the company.
