New CD: Temple of Deliverance Women’s Choir, Gospel stars

newsroom@tri-statedefender.com | 10/29/2013, 4:03 p.m.

The set was produced by noted musician/ composer Derrick Starks and features the choir performing with soloists such as Grammy Award winner Karen Clark Sheard (performing "Breakthrough"), Tamela Mann (performing "Have Thine Own Way") and veteran vocalist Lisa Page Brooks (performing "Keep Me All the Way").

The first radio single "Everybody Praise" has been blazing gospel play lists all summer long. A Memphis church fixture, Carla Tolbert Taylor, leads the rousing hand clapper. Her father was a singer prior to becoming deaf and it's been Taylor's mission to vicariously carry out his singing aspirations through her career.

By supporting the CD project, fans are also supporting Temple of Deliverance's on-going charitable donations. Over the last few years, the organization has donated over $75,000 to cancer research and various global relief efforts.
