Gospel Music Audiences Embrace Contemporary, Inspirational Artist Emmitt Nevels, Jr. With His Debut Release, “Love You I”
TURNERSVILLE, NJ - November 17, 2009 - Gospel music audiences across the nation welcome contemporary, inspirational recording artist and songwriter Emmitt Nevels, Jr. as he releases his debut CD “Love You I” on 7-Places Global Gospel. Nevels’ fresh, original style invokes passionate praise and a distinct call to worship that has gospel programmers nationwide adding Nevels to their station’s music rotation.
The up-tempo praise single “I Wanna Bless You” is already gaining national airplay in radio markets such as Atlanta, Detroit, Jacksonville, St. Louis and Buffalo, NY. And, Jazz-styled tracks “Eternity” and “It’s A Good Day” may soon find their way on the playlists of smooth inspirational Jazz shows.
Gospel music historian and WLUW Chicago host Bob Marovich describes “Love You I” as “a simple melodic love song to the Savior. It’s fresh, modern, crisp and electric, a blend of Christian pop and contemporary gospel.”
“I just write from my heart,” says Nevels who penned every song on his freshman album except “You Are Great” (Ishmael Hale). An accomplished songwriter, Nevels has written popular songs like “Company,” “Alright” and the Billboard Top 30 single “Clap Your Hands” for his siblings, gospel singing sensations the Nevels Sisters.
Nevels, a Youngstown, Ohio native, previously sang lead for a local group G-Clef and even had an offer to join the Grammy award-winning gospel group Commissioned in the 1990s when Gospel star Fred Hammond exited. But, in 2009, Nevels has emerged with extraordinary talent and inspiring songs that penetrate the soul.
He shares executive producing credits with Dr. Clyde Maxwell who co-owns the 7-Places record label along with Nevels. “Love You I” is available at Best Buy stores and online at www.7-places.com and www.bestbuy.com.
