Chris Hester Releases Reach Album

Written by SGN Scoops on September 6, 2011 – 9:42 am -

{Crescendo Gospel Music Management} Gospel music superstar Chris Hester has proudly released his new album “Reach” to all major digital download sites. 
“Reach” is a collection of anointed songs from gifted writers such as Gerald Crabb, Chris Binion, Sheri LaFontaine and more. “Reach has been an album that has pushed me to a new level. There is just something special about this album. I feel as if it is something that not just every album could offer. There really is a special anointing upon this album. We can’t wait to see how God is going to use this album to minister to those hurting in a lost lonely dying world,” explains Hester.
“Reach” Features a very special song entitled “Miracle In Reach” penned by legendary gospel music song writer Gerald Crabb. “In January of this year I awoke to my right eye being swollen shut and the whole right side of my face being numb. The saying I had a face for radio had never been truer. After seeing a doctor I was diagnosed with Bells Palsy. My doctors ordered me off the road for 6 weeks to prevent any stress to my body that could cause my condition to worsen. Immediately I started praying for a miracle. I truly believed God was going to heal me so I could continue his work, And he did. What doctors were expecting to take 6 weeks to recover God recovered in 2 weeks.  Its our Faith that will put our “Miracle in Reach”-Hester
Reach is available on almost all digital media sources including iTunes http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/reach/id458676657 
and CD Baby http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/chrishester3

The special cruise will also feature a New Artist Showcase. Artists set to perform on that showcase include Heavens Highway, Chris Hester, The Bilderbacks, Deep Water Band, and The Williamsons.
 
Darrell Freeman of The Freemans said, “This is such a unique opportunity for all of these artists to get together. We are so excited about hosting such legendary names and voices in the industry on this cruise. If you’ve loved the music of these legends, then you won’t want to miss out on this cruise!”
 
The cruise will stop in Nassau, Bahamas and Key West and departs from Jacksonville, Florida. The price of the cruise includes cruise fare, food, all taxes, gratuities, receptions, and concert tickets.

The Freemans recently scored their latest #1 single with the lyric driven and poignant song “The Father & the Son.” Penned by celebrated songwriter Dianne Wilkinson, “The Father & the Son” spent four consecutive weeks at #1 on the AbsolutelyGospel.com (formerly SoGospelNews.com) Top 40 Weekly Chart – the Southern Gospel’s most watched and respected weekly radio report.
 
“The Father & the Son” is the debut single from The Freeman’s much-anticipated new recording – Evidence. Four years in the making, Evidence is truly The Freemans’ most transparent and emotional release to date. Evidence features songs that were chosen in response to four pivotal years for the group, which were mired with multiple family deaths and extremely personal losses for individual group members. Those events took the group on an emotional journey that resonates throughout the new recording.
 
Evidence is now available at concert events and on The Freemans’ website.

Chris Hester Signs Booking Agreement with EHA-Nashville

Written by Rhonda on August 16, 2010 – 4:46 am -

{Nashville, TN 7/30/10} Chris Hester recently signed a booking agreement with Evie Hawkins (EHA-Nashville.) Hester’s Christian Country song, “Empty Handed,” climbs a notch for the month of August on the Singing News charts and he celebrates his 2nd Top 40 song for 2010. From his newest project “Steps I’ve Taken,” the song is rapidly becoming a favorite from its Singing News debut on the Top 80 a few months ago and continues to rise into the 30’s. The Dottie Rambo classic song, “Tears Will Never Stain The Streets of that City,” from his much awaited sophomore project-in collaboration with Misty Freeman,- was submitted for a Dove nomination earlier this year by the Rick Hendrix Company.
Hester is especially grateful to the radio promotions staff at Spin-N-Motion and Kim Hudgins for their work on “Empty Handed.” He recently recorded a video which is being aired on numerous Christian television stations and was directed by Glenn Sweitzer of Fresh Films of Nashville. The film spotlights the message of his current radio single. The video is available at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6bj3z00Ysc and soon at www.absolutelygospel.com and at www.chrishester.com . Hester notes, “We appreciate our friends at www.sogospelnews.com and look forward to a long term relationship with them over the years.” Hester also says, “I look forward to working with The Evie Hawkins Agency for bookings and thank all of those who have purchased my music and allowed me to be able to do what God called me to do. I hope to see each of you at NQC this year in Louisville, KY, booth 1151, or in a concert/service near you. For booking information please contact The Evie Hawkins Agency at 256 621 2224. Evie Hawkins notes, “I am honored to have Chris on our roster at EHA. Chris is an outstanding and gifted man, and we’re so excited to be a part of his music ministry!”
