RACHEL WEST KRAMER PARTNERS WITH GRAMMY® WINNING DAVID T. CLYDESDALE FOR MAJESTIC GLORY, AVAILABLE NOW

Written by Staff on March 5, 2015 – 4:08 pm -

unnamed (1)(Nashville, TN) February 24, 2015 – Rachel West Kramer, known for her exceptional vocal expertise, has teamed up with GRAMMY® and Dove award winner, David T. Clydesdale to record her new project, Majestic Glory, available now.
The release has already caught the attention of listeners and reviewers alike. Timothy Yap – Hallels.com – comments: “Rachel West Kramer has a penetrating soprano that has the ability to soar to the heights of Mt. Everest and camp there for an extended stay. But it’s not just about vocal volume and heights. Even in her softer cadences, she has the ability to get beneath the skin of her notes and bring out raw emotions that we never thought existed. In short, Kramer is the singer’s singer. If you are into vocalists who can sing (ala Celine Dion or Whitney Houston) and who are not afraid to shatter some glasses along the way, Kramer is simply sublime.”
The ten-song release features beloved compositions of the Christian faith “Christ Arose The Victor,” “I Walked Today Where Jesus Walked,” “The Holy City,” along with classic hymns “It Is Well With My Soul,” “The Lord’s Prayer,” among others including an extremely stirring version of “How Great Thou Art.”
“Rachel was such a joy to work with – maybe work isn’t the right word,” David Clydesdale commented. “Rachel is an inspiration and spiritually concerned to communicate with her listeners God’s truths. I don’t remember working with an artist before who cried during the recording of the orchestra. This was her dream, and it was happening and she was so gracious and thankful God had given her this moment. I KNOW you will be blessed, as I was!”
Rachel shares, “The idea for this album came while touring the Holy Land. It was my third tour there, but the first tour for most everyone else in our group. While making our way up to Jerusalem, as is tradition, everyone began singing the song, ‘The Holy City.’ There is rarely a dry eye when you experience this. I felt as if God said specifically to me, ‘I want you to make music which tells My story and shows people the way to The Holy City (Heaven). The joys have been innumerable as we worked on this album. Working with David Clydesdale and his magnificent arrangements was a tremendous privilege. We have prayed our LORD will bless many lives through this powerful collection of songs.”
Majestic Glory, produced by D. Scott Kramer for Electric Station Records, is available worldwide on iTunes, in select Christian retail stores and online atwww.TheKramersMusic.com.

Willie left the Oak Ridge Boys in the early seventies and after a brief stint as tenor for Hovie Lister and The Statesmen, he started his own successful group, Willie Wynn & The Tennesseans. Willie was inducted into the Gospel Music Association’s Hall of Fame with the Oaks and is a member of the Southern Gospel Music Association’s Hall of Fame as an individual. The ultimate “encourager,” Willie is known as the man with a million friends. He has made an undeniably positive impact on gospel music and it is truly a privilege to pay tribute to Little Willie Wynn!
