Funk Goes Gospel With The Release Of Great Things By The Firmamentation
This is not your mama's Gospel music. Great Things is the new Funk flavored Gospel album by The Firmamentation. Christians who still have a taste for 80's Soul, R&B and Funk music will welcome this breath of fresh air and new life.
NEW BERN, N.C. - Sept. 8, 2016 - PRLog -- Gospel Funk sensation The Firmamentation is releasing its debut independent album Great Things on CD Baby Sunday, September 18th. Fronted by former 80's underground Funk band General Caine's David Chadwick, The Firmamentation is breaking all the rules of traditional Gospel with a sound that will speak to the masses and make them move. Their album Great Things features 8 soul-stirring tracks with a sound reminiscent of Parliament Funkadelic and Earth, Wind & Fire while still driving home a powerful gospel message of faith, redemption and grace.
By no means is this your mama's gospel music.
The eponymous lead single "Great Things" is a foot stomping jam inspired by Funkadelic's "One Nation Under a Groove" and it will get you in the groove. "G.M.P.O." stands for "get my praise on" and when you hear the churchy, spirit-filled ad-libs of this tune, that's exactly what you are going to do. "The One" is a socially-conscious call to be grateful, thankful and well,… The One who makes a difference – a powerful gospel message if ever there was one!
David Chadwick, adolescent Pentecostal preacher turned funk musician turned nondenominational pastor, has come full circle spiritually and musically and he's not interested in fitting in. The former Funk musician and his host of family and friends, collectively known as The Firmamentation, are focused on creating music that truly reflects the joy and the journey God has given them. Featuring the funk grooves that intrigued David in his youth yet power-packed with uncompromising messages of the power of Jesus Christ, Great Things will excite, inspire and revive Christians of all ages, denominations and dispositions. David's former General Caine band mate, legendary keyboardist and guitarist Anthony Patler, adds strokes of musical genius to David's instrumentation while dynamic vocals from wife Cora Chadwick, in-laws Shawntee Cherry and Connie Gary and a host of other family members and friends drive home the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Firmamentation is poised to set the gospel world on fire, burning with the Holy Ghost!
Great Things is available now on CD Baby and will hit Amazon.com and iTunes on September 18th. Get more information on The Firmamentation at www.greatthingsgospel.com.
