Yep, that's New Breed as in Israel & New Breed. But before we go any further, I need to emphasise that this features the production of Israel Houghton but NOT the voice of the famed Latin worship leader. Here we've got a batch of Hosanna! Music worship songs from the gifted pens of tried-and-tested songsmiths such as Paul Baloche, Don Moen, Tommy Walker and Aaron Lindsey given a radical makeover by the extraordinary singers and instrumentalists who have such a stirring tour-de-force on Israel & New Breed albums. The effect is a thrilling worship pot pourri be it the delicious Latin vibe of "Freedom", the R&B grooves of others and possibly, most surprising of all, an almost Toby Mac style rap groove on "Again I Say Rejoice". Hard to put in a single category (we've plumped for "gospel") this is a live album which will bless tens of thousands of worshippers.

I don't want to be pedantic, but Israel isn't Latin. He's mixed race (half black, half white) - he says so himself in the interview you did with him a couple of years ago.
