Dorinda Clark-Cole will release her fifth album "Living It" on Feb. 17. "Living it" features songs written and produced by Deon Kipping, Rick Robinson, Daniel Weatherspoon, Joe "Flip" Wilson and more.
"Since my last album so many things happened in my life that really brought me to a place of living firsthand the faith that I have sang, talked and preached about all my life," she says. "After almost losing my house to foreclosure once and then to a fire a second time, and seeing God restore and recover everything in my life, I can really say that I am living it - the 'it' being true faith, true dependence on God, true deliverance, true peace."
On "Living it," the legendary evangelist and singer - who has won three Grammy® Awards and six Stellar Gospel Music Awards - soars to new creative and thematic heights. Still, she holds firm to her signature style that is delightfully soaring and expressive, and epitomizes the Gospel music canon.
The current single, "Bless This House", is a ballad that flourishes with rich Sunday morning chords and passionate, emotional lyrical delivery. The song is a cry out to the Lord for a divine refreshing, asking Him to "bless my house, as I bless you." Dorinda acknowledges that, particularly because of her traveling ministry, she too is in need of covering. "I almost lost my house. My house caught on fire. Yet, I am still ministering. So, the song is saying, as I travel, Lord, bless this house, as I bless you. As I help someone else out of what they're going through bless my house, as I bless you. Lord, please bless my children. I need you to bless my house."
She says: "I am a living witness that no matter how bleak the situation looks, God can give us grace again. Life itself is a sign that tomorrow is going to be better. Ask God to increase your faith to hold on. Pray a little longer and pray a little stronger because we can do nothing without prayer."
"My world is finally coming to where I need it to be. I feel comfortable about my career and excited about the journey I am on now."
"Living it" will be released on Light Records/eOne Music February 17, three days prior to the February 20 premiere of Oxygen's "Preacher's of Detroit" on which Dorinda Clark-Cole is featured.
