GreenJade have performed across the UK and the globe to critical acclaim since 1996. In 2003, after much sacrifice and six years of prayer, a dream was realised with their own Nu Jerusalem studio, a quality space for the Jade and UK artists to record and release their musical dreams. Thus 'The Nu Jerusalem Project Vol 1' was breathed into life. The album explodes into life with GreenJade bringing heat over The Tribe's "Take Back The Beat". So what else can you expect? Prodigal Son from Nottingham raps insightfully about "The Things People Do For Money". Those soulful girls Siani bring their contemporary urban gospel sound in "Love Is" (featuring GreenJade), which recently hit number one in the Blues & Soul chart. London five-piece Eklesia deliver a fantastic urban gospel rap sound in "Move Remix". On the UK hip-hop tip there's Zionnoiz, "Let It Out", Jahaziel "Headlines" and "No More Secrets" by Beatlab. Three seriously catchy tunes with smooth, vibrant and sanctified deliveries. The 29th Chapter bring "The Fellowship Of The King", fresh from their performance at Flavor Fest in Tampa. The project varies it up with the energetic dance soca-style, "I Can't Stop" (Soca Susie remix) by MV. We round things off with "One Voice, One Heart" the powerful UK Christian artists collaboration for the tsunami relief. As for the hidden track.
