eminence-worthy-is-the-lamb

Eminence, a NYC based gospel ensemble has released their first epic single, “Worthy is The Lamb.”

The group’s new official song is a dynamic, and inspirational song that takes the listener on an emotional musical journey with its intricate, stringed arrangement and dynamic electric guitar accompaniment.

With strong vibratos and an abundance of vocal control, the group takes you back to the authentic sound of gospel, reminiscent of Ricky Dillard & New Generation Chorale, James Hall Worship & Praise, and even more of the secular lines of Kirk Franklin‘s presents God’s Property.

“Eminence has been performing around NYC since 2010, so we are excited for the digital release of our first single,” says Karl Jackson, founder and director of Eminence. “This single has been one of our most requested performance songs to date, so it was befitting that it was our first recorded project.”

Karl Jackson also wrote, “Worthy is The Lamb.” Recorded vocals were co-produced by Karl Jackson and Daniel Calderon, and Gary Mayes produced the musical instrumentation.

The single is available for purchase on iTunes, Google Play Music Store and Amazon Music. It is also available on various streaming services including Tidal, Spotify, Rhapsody, Deezer and iHeart Radio.

Watch: Kanye West Headlines at The Glastonbury Festival [Videos]

kanye west at glastonbury

Headliner Kanye West took over the Glastonbury Festival stage in a major way!

The music phenom provided his set of hits like: “Power”, “All Day”, “Stronger”, “N**gas In Paris”, “Mercy”, “Gold Digger”, “Touch The Sky”, “No Church In The Wild” and the list goes on. West literally performed a total of 30 songs…yes, 3-0-songs!

During his festival takeover, Kanye got “Taylor-Swifted” as everyone has been saying, where Comedian Lee Nelson jumped in the middle of Ye’s set, as he was actually making an appearance, with mic in-hand, and a “Lee-zus” tee. In KW fashion, he signaled the sound man to start the track over, once Lee was whisked-off stage right. After, Yeezy immediately goes into acapella mode, until the track comes back in.

Peep the hilarious clip below:

You gotta love the pranks…Lol!
