Standard And Deluxe Edition In Stores And Online September 18th
Music World Gospel artist, Le’Andria Johnson has kept up a whirlwind pace since being introduced to millions a mere two years ago as one of the then hopeful contestants on BET’s reality television singing competition, Sunday Best . Since being crowned the show’s winner – Johnson has sold over 200,000 copies of her debut CD The Awakening of Le’Andria Johnson and picked up a GRAMMY® for Best Gospel/Contemporary Christian Performance for hit song “Jesus.” The album was #1 on the Billboard Gospel Charts for 7 weeks and remained in the top 10 for 33 weeks.
Back with a new live CD/DVD release produced by David Blakely and aptly called Le’Andria Johnson: The Experience, fans are treated to a 13-track body of work – half urban contemporary/half traditional gospel. The album is full of hard-hitting drums, pulsating guitar riffs, and infectious energy. Each track showcases the vocal range and complexity of Johnson. The lead single “My Story Continues” is a feel good track where Johnson bares all, sharing her journey, her fears, her passions and her hopes. The song that is perhaps most relatable by all is the current urban single, “Complicated,” a blues-tinged ballad exposing the complexities of relationships. The track is climbing up the urban AC charts – currently ranked in the top 50. In a special moment on the DVD, Johnson movingly serenades a stage 4 cancer victim with “God Will Take Care of You.” Johnson reinterprets gospel standard, “Lord Keep Me By Day” and gives fans an extended version of her hit single, “Jesus.”
The September 18 th album release comes on the heels of Johnson’s early September expected delivery of her fourth child. The 29 yr old, twice divorced, single mom has candidly spoken about her struggles. Johnson has had her share of difficulty but has resolutely chosen to sing through it all in hopes of reaching many along the way.
Le’Andria Johnson: The Experience will be released in a standard and deluxe version. iTunes will feature bonus track, “Endow Me” exclusively. The album is available for pre-sale on iTunes and Amazon now.
