Israel Houghton has brought the world unforgettable music. His songs have bridged together demographics that were otherwise on the polar ends of the musical spectrum. He has not only bridged together a multiplicity of musical styles and tastes, his work and ministry has been awarded accordingly. After successful recordings in Africa and Asia, the gospel worship artist took a bit of a step back following a very public change in his private life.
He has experienced the grace he sings about and has undoubtedly experienced God in a whole new way…another level, if you will! We were able to catch up with him last year and he did mention new music, but not much about a new sound! His newest single “Reckless Love” is a bit of a departure from what you may expect from the stringed psalmist but the message is right on par with his immense catalog of hits! Read the full press release below and make sure you add the hot new single to your music collection when it drops on tomorrow!
