A bevy of Motown Gospel artists record acoustic gospel album

ON 3rd JUNE Motown Gospel will release the album '1 Mic 1 Take' recorded live at Capitol Studios in Hollywood. The acoustic gospel project features Tasha Cobbs, Smokie Norful, Brian Courtney Wilson, Myron Butler & Levi, Brian Courtney Wilson and newcomer Royce Lovett. Read a press release, "'1 Mic 1 Take' is a concept that Blue Note Records president and super-producer Don Was (under parent company EMI-Capitol) spearheaded initially as one-off promotional-only clips to highlight the legitimacy and vibrancy of the label's acts by showcasing their vocal and song craft talents in naked, unadorned forms. In the world of pop music this can be revealing. In the world of gospel music, it's a revelation - offering kinetic alternatives for praise and prayer of favourite songs." CR
