Nashville Life Music provides a celebratory vibe with its first studio album, “Here for Jesus.” Gospel icon CeCe Winans and husband Alvin Love started New Life Church back in 2012, and it has attracted a diverse range of people tied to the music industry. With a variety of talented musicians, “Here for Jesus” mirrors the music of the 1970s with a gospel message. Listeners will also hear modern hip-hop, gospel, and contemporary praise and worship. Imagine Elton John; Queen; Earth, Wind and Fire; Chance the Rapper; and Kanye West wrapped together in a musical package. “More than Words” is a boisterous tune that starts with a cheerleading chant and reflects on dedication to the Lord; “I’ve Got a Reason” boasts a vibrant gospel sound and says in part, “(God) woke me up this morning and gave me a testimony.” This beautiful album is an energizing, life-giving testimony to God’s universal church—diverse and in harmony.
