Fort Worth, Texas – January 19, 2020 – Internationally celebrated, multiple award-winning Gospel recording artist Marvin Sapp has a new music project slated for later this year that he will record live at his new church, The Chosen Vessel Cathedral in Fort Worth, Texas.

Sapp is excited to bring the electrifying energy of the live recording experience to his new city, which has embraced him warmly.
“This recording is special to me because I’m doing it in my new home – literally and figuratively. I never imagined that I would live in and pastor in the DFW Metroplex, and now that I am here, I can’t wait to continue to connect with the community and immerse my church into this side of my ministry through this live recording,” Sapp said.
The Chosen Vessel will be released on RCA Inspiration/Verity later this year.
Phil Thornton, SVP and General Manager of RCA Inspiration/Verity, says, “Marvin Sapp continues to be one of the most powerful and prolific voices in Gospel, whose live performances and compelling songwriting always make a vibrant, profound experience that is unforgettable.

PURPLE LOVE LYRICS
I confess that I am loved
I'm loved eternally
I confess that I am loved
I'm loved forevermore
I confess that I am loved
I'm loved eternally
I confess that I am loved
I'm loved forevermore.
When the devil tries the take away my joy
When the devil tries to take away my peace
And addictions keep weighing me down
I'll remember the cross
I'll remember your blood
I'll remember your blood on Calvary.
I confess that I am loved
I'm loved eternally
Where will I be if not for you Jehovah
...singing in tongues...
I was lost but you found me
But you found me
Great She...epherd you are
Look at me and you will see
I'm the expression of Grace
On the Cross of Calvary
You carried my shame
Eloi Lama Sabachthani you yelled
The devil thought he had me
But Jesus got it all planned
Laughter.... Thank you Jesus
...This is my song of Victory!

UK based gospel artiste Esther Andrea Queen is set to release her debut single after many years in the music ministry.
From our correspondence who had a chat with her …
SHORT INTERVIEW WITH ESTHER ANDREA QUEEN
Q) Triumphant Radio: Please can we officially meet you?
A) I am Esther Andrea N’zue but I’m informally known as Esther Queen. I am originally from Cote d’Ivoire but based in the UK. As you would appreciate I come from a country where French is our first language, so my friends also tag me as the French girl.
I hold a degree in Economics and Business Administration.
Q) Triumphant Radio: Tell us about your background and your music life?
A) Well, I have always been is the music ministry. This stems from following my parents to church and being in the choir from my teenage days, I guess I followed that through till the present moment. Though while growing up I was involved in other career paths. And as a young girl, I have always desired and prayed to God that ” I don’t just want to sing, but when I sing i want to see healing, deliverance and breakthroughs happening”.
Q) Triumphant Radio: Wow! so how long have you being doing music?
A) Like I previously said, I have been singing actively since my teenage days but actively took the music ministry a little seriously 5-6 years ago. I used to be in a group when I studied in India for my Post graduate degree.
Q) Triumphant Radio: So what are your challenges since you started music ministry?
A) One of the challenges I have encountered is trying to distinguish between ministry and entertainment. Looking at the gospel music industry lately you hear some songs and get confused. But as an upcoming artist, you need to have mentors, so I look unto my mentors like Tasha Cobbs and Maranda Curtis and learn from them by observation. I have just started so I wouldn’t say I have faced much of a challenge as such.
Q) Triumphant Radio: May I ask do u have any Albums or how many single have released?
A) I do not have an album yet but I am currently working on 2 songs. One is almost ready for release as my debut single.
Q) Triumphant Radio: Can you tell the world about your newest song release and the inspiration behind this Song…..
A) My debut track is titled Spirit of the Living God. It speaks of us as Christians yearning for the rain of the Holy spirit. I really treasure every moment in his presence. Any time i was going through difficulties , the only place i could find peace, restoration and healing was in his presence (the sweet fellowship with the spirit of God), and it always bring me back to Ezekiel 37.. humm
The spirit of God took the prophet in the valley of dry bones.. Though he was asked to prophesy,we can clearly see that there was an atmosphere in which the prophecy was made for the dry bones to come alive (the presence of the spirit of the living God) and i always long for this atmosphere because anything I need is in his presence.
Q) Triumphant Radio: Do you have plan shooting the video of this song any time soon
A) There is no immediate plan for that at the moment but you never know. As previously mentioned I have other songs and would probably need to see which one is more appropriate to release.
Q) Triumphant Radio: Can you tell us something about the music industry in the United Kingdom.
A) The music industry in the UK is not as pronounce as in Africa. As you must have noticed, the gospel is beginning to die down in the UK. That’s why we as Christians have a duty to keep preaching the gospel through our songs to the community in which we belong. Then our songs can be appreciated more. The UK music has a ‘sound’ in which you can identify it. I’m not quite sure the community has embraced this sound. You see churches appreciating songs originating mostly from places like Nigeria and Ghana more than those from the UK. That says a lot.
Q) Triumphant Radio: Esther Andrea Queen are you single or married?
A) I am not married yet (smile)
Q) Triumphant Radio: What inspires you when you write your songs?
A) My inspiration are diverse. The Holy spirit gives me inspiration but mostly when I think of the greatness of God or the need of the Holy Spirit, I get inspired to write more. That’s why you might hear my songs are mainly towards that direction.
Q) Triumphant Radio: So Esther, who or what are your greatest influences, role models and mentors, spiritual leaders?
A) Musically, Tasha Cobbs and Maranda Curtis. As a matter of fact some of my friends nicknamed me Andrea Cobbs (laughs). My mentors are My pastor Pst Nathaniel in the comission i belong to and Pst Roland Zadi (back home). however I also follow women of God like Pst Sarah jakes and Pst Funke Adejumo.
Q) Triumphant Radio: Your last words Esther Queen?
A) I just want to encourage everyone out there that Jesus loves them and no matter the challenges you have been through, you can still break forth in praises. Lastly I cannot over-emphasize the need to have the Holy Spirit as your helper…He is always there to help you. So call on him.
Q) So how can your fans reach you on social media or if they need you for events, how can they reach your management team?
A) I am on Facebook Esther Andrea Queen , Instragram @esther_andrea_queen.

In the beautiful surroundings of Upcote Farm in Cheltenham, 2000 Trees festival is a gem of a find if you’ve been lucky enough…I found this festival in 2008 when ‘Reuben’ were due to headline, but even though they disbanded a few weeks prior to the festival, us fans still decided to turn up, and boy am I glad I did… Being a small sized 5000 capacity festival, theres enough people to fill tents/stages, but not enough to have 20 minute waits at the bars and toilets. The balance between atmosphere and accessibility is second to none. The food stalls are all hand picked, the same with the local ciders/ales and beers, the organisers have really nailed it on the head, you can tell they themselves are passionate about underground and emerging talent, as well as bringing in some big names, it really does cater for every type music fan.
Arriving late on the Thursday I caught ‘The Cave’ tent headliner ‘Dan le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip’, merging Hip-Hop and electronic overlaid with Spoken word vocals, this duo really know how to put on a show, merging beautifully clever lyrics over various genre bending instrumentals, one minute your dancing, the next your in awe of this intense musical duo, spine tinglingly truthful lyrics backed up by brilliantly arranged tracks.
Main stage headliners ‘Band Of Skulls’ hail from Southampton and have recently graced some well deserved slots including ‘Glastonbury’, ‘Sonisphere’ and supporting ‘Arcade Fire’ at Hyde Park.. Blues rock with arena worthy tunes, duo male and female vocals they really stand out and have a sound that upcoming bands will sure be influenced by. In the coming years I can see this band gaining bigger and wider audiences and headlining much bigger stages. As the sun sets the backlit stage at 2000 Trees was witnessing something very special, a homegrown band sure to be one of our new demanded exports.
“Lonely The Brave have a huge sound, mind-blowing vocals and an instant quality of musicianship that engulfs the crowd in a state of admiring concentration. After a new favourite band? you’ve found them.
Second from top on ‘The Cave’, ‘Jamie Lenman’, the man behind one of the UK’s much loved cult bands ‘Reuben’, now solo, he mixes monstrous hardcore with bluesy folk with his new heavy-mellow band. Jamie’s set concentrated more on the heavy side of his recently released double album ‘Muscle Memory’, with some classic ‘Reuben’ songs thrown in. A true hero of most at the festival, its such a treat to see this underground icon grace the stage at the festival he helped shape, for me at least!
