Nashville, TN (12/13/2013) – Donna King, best known for her years as powerhouse vocalist with Hope’s Call and her behind the scenes production, songwriting, and marketing work in Gospel Music has released her first solo project.Â The new album is a Christmas recording and will be spotlighted on this week’s edition of THE GOSPEL GREATS hosted by Paul Heil.
The album, SONG OF NOEL, features some of Donna’s favorite classic Christmas songs, along with some original songs, many of which she wrote with her husband Zane and another co-writer, Rachel Morgan Perry.Â The album also includes a soon to be classic Christmas song, written by Joel Lindsey and Matthew Garinger entitled “GIVE ME THIS NIGHT.”
In addition to the Christmas project, Donna is sharing music and ministry with her husband, Zane.Â Their last single to radio, “Hallelujah, Jesus Saves,” made a HUGE splash on the radio airwaves, quickly rising to the TOP 15 songs on the monthly Singing News charts and coming in at number 3 on their weekly chart. Their newest single, “Shine,” is showing the same energy as it recently landed in the TOP 10 new releases across the country on the Singing New’s new release chart.
“For many years, during my haitus from recording and traveling in ministry, I found tremendous gratification in helping other artists to make music and expand their horizons in ministry,” expresses Donna.Â She continues,”I still absolutely LOVE that and I continue to walk gratefully with artists, in the making of their albums, as a producer, and in helping them to get their songs to radio, so the world can hear the gifts GOD has given them.Â To be honest, I had resolved that this was my role and singing was over for me,Â but GOD never let the tug leave my heart.Â Truly, when I look back over the last several years, I can see how He graciously mapped out and executed HIS plans for my life. To be back in the studio, recording music for this Christmas record, and, with my husband, Zane, leaves me with so much gratitude, I cannot even begin to explain it.Â I am loving being back out on the road again. Thank you to my many friends and colleagues who have offered encouragement and continue to believe in my calling.”
