R&B star Regina Belle records first gospel project

R&B CHANTEUSE Regina Belle, known for such R&B hits as "Baby Come To Me", "This Is Love" and "A Whole New World" (a duet with Peabo Bryson from the Disney film Aladdin) has released her debut gospel album. 'Love Forever Shines' is released in the US on Pendulum Records/Walter Davis Entertainment on 13th May. Regina is minister of music at New Shield Of Faith Ministries in Atlanta where her husband of 17 years, John S Battle III, is senior pastor. The album was produced by Reuben Rodriguez. Billboard magazine asked the singer why she hadn't made the move to gospel before now. She responded, "God says the time is right. He's transitioning me to do a work for him. It was opportune." CR
