Miami Mass Choir Lands at #8 Billboard Top Gospel Albums After 15-year Hiatus
Grammy® and Stellar Award nominated Miami Mass Choir have been away from the recorded music scene for fifteen years. The dynamic choir has returned with a live album that has landed in the Billboard Top 10 Gospel Albums this week.
Director Marc Cooper and his group of south Florida’s elite singers and musicians took the #8 position with their MIAMI MASS CHOIR LIVE: At the Adrienne Arsht Center album.
“It’s a blessing to come back after 15 years and land on the Top 10 chart in our first week of album sales,” Marc Cooper shares. “We are very happy to know that our music is being embraced by new listeners.”
“I believe this project will be around for a while because our multi-cultural and multi-talented singers and musicians offer a diverse mix of styles that can please and impact everyone,” Marc explains. “Ultimately, this album will continue to give MMC and Christian music a national and international platform in sharing the Good News of Christ through lyric and song.”
This album is packed full of features leading a eclectic collection of Traditional, Soul, Latin, Contemporary and Worship styles of gospel music. Soul singer Betty Wright, Traditional Gospel vocalist Beverly Crawford, Latin CCM singer Tony LeBron and Gospel crooner Zacardi Cortez lend their voices to the album.
The Miami Mass Choir’s single “Lord Of Everything” has also leaped into the Top 40 Billboard BDS Gospel Radio Single Chart. The worship track is lead by MMC’s Danette Inyang.
THE MIAMI MASS CHOIR LIVE: At The Adrienne Arsht Center was recorded live at the Arsht Center where the MMC is the resident gospel choir for the center’s FREE GOSPEL SUNDAYS series.
