Nashville, Tenn. (Thursday, July 5, 2012) â€“ The Queen of Bluegrass, Rhonda Vincent, has always dreamed of releasing an all-gospel CD and that dream is about to come true! Sunday Mornin’ Singin’ LIVE!, the first all-gospel release from five-time GrammyÂ® nominee Rhonda Vincent, will be available in retail stores and online on July 10, 2012.
Recorded live at Rhonda’s childhood home church, Greentop United Methodist Church in Greentop, MO, this release captures Rhonda, along with her multi-award winning band The Rage, singing gospel classics alongside new favorites with exquisite musicianship and heavenly harmonies resounding through the over 100 year old church.
Seven-time International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Female Vocalist of the Year Rhonda Vincent is known for including Gospel music into her performances and grew up singing Gospel music with her family band, The Sally Mountain Show. Rhonda shared: “This is the music I grew up on – the music that shaped who I am today. My family sang this music all our lives and I’ve always included Gospel music in every performance. Going back to my childhood church to record this very special project made this moment in time unforgettable and I/m so excited to share this with all my friends.”
AOLÂ® Music is currently featuring the CD as part of their weekly Full CD Listening Party along with the soundtracks to the movies The Amazing Spider Man, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and more.
